    Jake Saifiti, Pasami Saulo and Jirah Momoisea all played long minutes and put up big numbers in reserve grade.
    Tex Hoy played halfback and topped the metres run and fantasy points, so his good form continues.
    Chris Randall played 80 minutes at hooker for the 4th game in a row and topped the tackle count again with 40.

    Still need to win 5 games imo.
    I think we can win 7-8 of last 10 maybe more if confidence is high in the team

    If Media reports are correct and Pearce and Klemmer both miss out on NSW selection, than the Warriors are in for some pain.

    So i'd start with Levi and Watson both on the field and Lino on the bench.
    Watson has a big motor and playing a bit of 5/8 at the start of the game wouldn't take much out of him.
    I'd start with Levi at hooker with instruction to go as hard as he can, and when he runs out of puff i'd move Watson to dummy half and bring on Lino to play 5/8.
    That way we could use Watson's big motor to full effect and have a dummy half looking to run hard all game, while still using as much of Levi's better passing game as possible.
    We also have injury cover for Pearce, who is clearly playing injured at the moment.
    If we run up a big lead with 15 minutes to go, we could even give Pearce an early mark and let Lino practice running the side.

    Article by Toohey today said Levi straight into the starting side.
    So all there is to work out is how to use Watson and Lino, and I think we need Watson to bring his energy for 80 minutes, but I also think we need Lino to get game time for when we actually need him. (although now that Crossland is a top 30 player, I'd think about replacing Lino with Crossland).

    He played on the wing and scored a try in the Flegg qualifying final last year.
    Last year and this year he has played in positions 1, 2, 3, 6, 7 and 14, but this year he has played only 1 and 7.

    I'd rather see Daniel get the experience and the $30k.
    Klemmer has plenty of experience and plenty of money.

    I know what you're saying, but Lino's goalkicking is important too

    True. Our only 3 goal kickers are Lino, Ponga and Barnett as far as I know (although Levi fancies himself, but is rubbish) so we better have one of them on the field.

    He kicked goals for us in under 18s, but I just looked at his record and he's never kicked one in 100 games of firstgrade.
