    Would love to see Huth get a run, but tough ask for him being unable to play all year and getting thrown in against Storm. I’d have Hoy and Phoenix battle it out in training for the 14, but otherwise side same as yours.

    J saf looked very sluggy with PTB. His match fitness should be getting better for the runs starting. Would you give sasagi a run Billy? Or go with Huth to spell Randy?

    I'd go with Huth because we now have Randy and Huth for the rest of the season, and it's time Huth got 15 or 20 minutes of firstgrade in case we need to use him for longer minutes later on.

    Makes me wonder if we try sign another hooker before aug. Has Huth played many games against men?

    Huth has played 5 games of reserve grade - all short minutes off the bench. He has an average fantasy points in reserve grade of 12.2 a game.

    I think we have at least 1 and maybe 2 development spots, but we can only pay them way under NRL money and I expect they'd have to do 14 days isolation. Maybe Tyler Randell would go for that.

    I am going to go a bit left field, make changes, go for broke against a side we expect to lose to, some changes need to be made, injury, some due to form, but with as little effect to stability

    For anyone saying that Storm will flog us, chances are they absolutely will. However, Dogs weren’t given much chance today and showed us up, so don’t write it off as impossible, just extremely improbable lol.

    Does not matter

    1-17 the dogs were worse than us

    Biggest loss since the Sharks game incoming

    Love the optimism.

    You have started on the hope part of the cycle very early.

    If Pearce's knee is as big an issue as it seems, this is a game we could rest him and give Lino some much needed match time.
