    They’ll be stinging after that crap they dished up yesterday. I expect a much improved performance. Can’t see us winning though.

    Our big hope is Cogger back and the Sharkies being very over confident which we have seen before from them.

    Sorry mozza we don't seem to generate any sting or fire at all.

    I think Brown is babying them too much. He said in a recent presser something along the lines of these blokes have played a few games now in first grade, and because of that you can be a bit dirty on them, and the other players can expect more of them.

    The way he was talking gave me the impression he has been fairly soft on them thus far and only now, has he started to be harder on them.

    I think Sione will be here next season and we might find Sione/Ramien our centre pairing with some hope that Moga might make it back, I have my doubts. If Moga makes it back Sione will be bench covering backs and 2nd row/edge but I think he will play more centre than anywhere else, just my opinion

    Yeah. Yeah. Lets hope he gets absolutely humiliated and contemplates retirement or better yet cops a head knock and is forced to retire.

    That is a bit rough mozza wishing that on the kid. Granted he is not playing well consistently but a HIA is the last thing he needs.

    Ramien played strong yesterday and scored a great try.

    Sarcasm is hard to convey via the internet.

    Dont want Sione humiliated, though if he get tought a lesson by a 10 game vet than it mite wake him up to do better as 10mths time that vet will be in the jumper Sione has now.

    I wouldn't count Lamb out.
    Plenty of people have played with a cheekbone fracture in the past and apparently he played out the game with it this week and it was only picked up with scans after the game.
    If it were a bad fracture you'd expect it to swell very quickly and he would have looked like the elephant man by the end of the game, and I didn't even see any swelling at all.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if the Sharkies had this one wrapped up by the half-hour mark. Can’t see us coming remotely close.

    Starting to think Billy is Brock Lamb, the unconditional love for him is kinda sweet

    Our team against the Eels will be interesting if Ponga gets picked for QLD and we don't have Lamb and Pearce.

    Who are we picking this week folks? I’m struggling to name a decent squad but there should be changes imo.

    I’d have to go with:

    1. Ponga
    2. Sio
    3. Denniss
    4. Ross
    5. SKD
    6. Watson
    7. Cogger
    8. Ese’ese
    9. Griffin
    10. Lillyman
    11. Fitzgibbon
    12. Barnett
    13. Guerra

    14. Levi
    15. Buhrer
    16. Heighington
    17. Yates

    Sione, Daniel, King get the chop. Yates, Buhrer, Heighington back in.
