    Apparently Gavet is out with a minor hamstring strain and Levi will come into the starting side with Watson on the bench for impact.

    Hope so will be good if Levi can go hard and then bring Watson on when there forwards are struggling.

    Also Levi's partner had a baby the night before the Manly game, so Levi probably wasn't available to play last week.

    Nathan Brown is in doubt with an ankle injury. That would help us masively, he is a good player.

    He has been carrying that injury for 4 seasons now hasn't he, it's the only thing stopping him from playing hooker for us right? :giggle:

    Hopefully we win the next 2 or lose the next 2, I really don't want to be in the realms of mathematically possible of making the 8.

    I asked why Levi was dropped on the Q@A live cross and the assistant coach's answer was because of his defence against the Tigers. Levi made 26 tackles missed 1 and 3 of their 4 tries were scored while he was off the field. Blaming Levi's defence for the loss against the Tigers takes the saying clutching at straws to a whole new level.

    Just had an image of Nathan Brown the coach ruling himself out. He's watching the match from the couch from the perspective of a supporter.
    The team's playing terribly, he turns off the match with 20 mins to go and cancels his Fox subscription on the spot...

    I'd hate to think how much money our club wastes on their media department with crap like that.

    Dump 90% of it, and hire some extra football operations staff.

    I have always said this .
    I never saw any of the younger games but just in first grade a few times Jacob has outplayed Daniel easily and was the one on the field to be feared . He was just never consistant enough .

    I'm emailing the NRL with a request to extend the 2019 season by 23 more rounds. Hopefully by round 44 Brown might be settled on a combination.

    To be fair, just last year one of the player's partners had a baby and there were articles about it before the baby was born, but after the player had to drop out of training for a very long time and never got back to any sort of form, so something probably went wrong.
    With Levi, nothing was said before the birth, and now they are talking about it, so you would assume all is well.
    I think keeping the birth out of the public eye was the right way to go, given what happened last year.

    Glad Levi is in. He turns into a Issac Luke/Damien Cook/Cameron Smith blend for games against Parra.

    Interesting that the training photos today are from the NSWRL high performance centre, so the squad is staying in Sydney for a couple of days.

    Squad reduction - Gavet and Momoisea out and Levi listed on the bench, but Brown says he is likely to start.

    I had a similar argument about Mann NOT having a shocker, but that didn’t wash on here.

    I reckon Watson and Sione on the bench makes it too small. I’d prefer a big bench against the Eels. I like Sione off the bench normally but would prefer a bigger body, particularly with both Levi and Watson playing.
