    Stick with the same squad minus Mann, Hunt on the wing with Sione in the centres.
    We have no hope of finals footy, which means we will probably win our next 4.

    Need a bit of speed with a bit of risk, toss Mann and bring in Hoy or similar type. Last throw of the dice so take chances, change the game plan.

    Playing for pride here.

    Unfortunately hardly any of our blokes have any. Cowboys by 14.

    I will just hope we don't drop the ball cold several times this time around, we were right in it and playing okay until then (around the time we were in front). And whilst there were obvious home team calls (like the strip on Saifiti etc) the players have to understand the hands gonna be on the ball and all over the ruck and they need to hold onto it.

    This will be a win. Not making finals all pressure off.

    So they said on one of the football shows this morning that 61 players have debuted in the NRL this year.
    We have given 1 guy, Crossland, 10 minutes.
    We actually won the minor premiership in under 20s last year, and Beau Fermor was the best player in the comp.
    Guys like Xerri and Burton were being outplayed by guys like Toa and Crossland 12 months ago.

    We win the next four, we make the finals. We probably won’t win them though.

    Xerri wasn’t being outplayed by anyone in the juniors last year :lol:

    He is the reason the Sharks didn’t go overboard in trying to retain Ramien.

    Perfect time to blood some youngsters now there's no hope of finals.
    Hoy, Crossland and Jones should get a run this week.
    Time to focus on 2020.

    Hopefully this. I’ve had season tickets for 13 years now and this is the 1st time I’ve thought about not going to the game without a prior commitment.

    Giving a few young blokes a go would give me a reason.

    Given we can still make the 8 let’s go for a win by picking our best available 17 even if same as last week, let’s change the way we play, not drastic but a little bit more risky, the coach needs to coach.
    Some obvious changes required, Mann out, Hoy in, Sione/Guerra out and King/Gavet/ Ese’ese in, use the bench wisely and go for it like no tomorrow, cause there ain’t one

    We are big favourites for this one.
    $2.5-$1.5.
    That scares me.

    I would be dropping moga as he is extremely slow moving sideways and was caught out so many times against the eels.

    Question is do we have anyone that can fill in?

    Hoy has mostly been playing fullback and played fullback this week, but the 3 games before that in reserve grade he played centre, probably because we have no one else and to get him up to speed in a position he has played very little.
    All the others are either injured or well short of firstgrade ready.

    Why don't we try re arranging the spine, and even try Mann at prop?
