    Who knows where this one will be played.

    Some big decisions to be made by the NRL after this round.

    V’landys mentioned on Ch7 the show is going on for the time being but it will be interesting to see what happens in regards to that no doubt.

    Barnett might just have a "burner" - or pinched nerve - so he might be right for next week.
    Sione and Crossland should be very close to being ready.

    I reckon we will win this one imo , Obrien will not be happy with the points they let in and will drill them well this week .

    Fitzgibbon may cop a charge for his high shot...

    Sharks will be test us physically. I think it will be a grind sort of a game but think we have way way too much class and will come out on top

    I don’t think he comes straight back in based on our backs performance so far

    Have to agree. Tuala and Shiba particularly have been class. Amazing pick ups. Best should focus on getting to his 110% destructive best in reggies so OB simply cannot overlook him anymore. And then I think he comes in for Tuala. We have such a beautifully balanced deep team. For the first time in so long. Literally 5/8 is the only position that needs a standout. And then we’re ready.

    Yeah I’m struggling to put Best back in based off what I’ve seen from our centres so far

    The problem is there are no reggies. It’s going to be hard for players to force their way in. Maybe intra squad scrimmages will be all the footy the reserves are getting for the foreseeable future

    Of course!! Forgot about that. Well in that case, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Even Mann may escape the noose until we drop points and plausible fault can be applied!

    Looks like we will be without Ponga for this one. Cited for shoulder charge.

    Ponga 1 match suspension.
    Come on down Tex Hoy.
    I suppose there is a chance Mann will go to fullback and Lino or Hoy to 5/8.

    Ponga gets a week but Leulia drives an elbow into the back of his head on the ground and is free to play. Make sense of that, how is dangerous contact with the head worth less than a shoulder charge that never contacts the head, when we are supposed to be taking head knocks seriously.

    We’ll need a new goal kicker. I would say Lino will be the new 5/8.
