    I don’t care who we pick on the left wing as long as it isn’t Hunt. He’s earned the right to play in the centres and should remain there.

    I wouldn't be opposed to moga on the wing and move hunt into the centres, at least we have a bigger body returning the ball from kicks.

    Moga showed little commitment last game. Needs to be moved on.

    9 runs 105 metres doing hard stuff out of our end doesn't look to little commitment to me. He is the strongest ball carrier amongst the backs at the club and it's not close imo.

    Mann had 8 runs for 55m playing centre before he got hurt...

    Moga playing outside Ponga this week might mean he gets some good opportunities to score some tries.
    I was disappointed with his effort last week, but maybe he needs time to gel with the team.

    Much more well rounded team named for this round. Should settle things down a bit hopefully going into the final part of the season. Watson & Buhrer on the bench is **** though, get Jaifiti or Guerra in before Buhrer. I'm sure it might change before kick off though.

    JSaf in for Gavet and Guerra in for Buhrer and I’m happy.

    Surely Gavet is on his final chance

    I'd be swapping Jacob for Buhrer.
    Watson can cover the spine, jacob can cover backrow and middles.

    I dont mind that his playing.

    I hope Klemmer/Dan smash the crap out of him all night.

    Really want Jacob in the 17 so our middle is huge and just bashes the Roosters out of the game.

    Cant like this more then once unfortunately.

    When i go over the 30+years of this club and think of the 5 players that define tough forwards to wear the jumper i can only laugh at what they must think of Gavet efforts of being a enforcer.

    1 Paul Harragon
    2 Tony Butterfield
    3 Adam Muir
    4 Steve Simpson
    5 Jeremy Smith

    Every one of these MEN had the ability to strike fear into the whole 13 on the field against them.

    Imo all 5 of these guys would destroy Gavet on the field.

    Being tough and feared is earnt by playing fearless and fair.

    Gavet is a high school bully that most laugh at.

    I'm hoping he does not make the final 17.
