    Id go Ese in at starting prop.
    Lillyman to bench.
    King to reserves.
    Yates 18th man.
    Ross to reserves.

    Hopefully they rest Lattrel, Cordner &Teddy

    The young guys put their hands up and took control yesterday.
    It's a myth that we need the experience of Lillyman and Heighington.
    It's time for King and Yates to get picked on their merits over the old plodders.
    Ross is a better winger than Sio. He couldn't play with Moga, and newsflash, that was because Moga was super crappy at everything.

    That’s harsh on Heighington he’s been very good most weeks including last night. He definitely deserves to be there over King.

    I thought Lillyman and Heino both had good games for the limited time they played. Both outplayed King.

    Did u watch the game billy?

    King did nothing in the 15 minutes he was on.

    Nothing is harsh, though he was on very late and didnt provide anything to make him standout vs a very tired and beaten pack.

    Ese in for king the rest stay.

    I watched King belt a few guys, as opposed to the old guys doing the soft stuff that old guys do.
    Old forwards learn to look like they are doing the job, while doing just as much as they have to so they can save energy - and good on them for doing what they have to do to earn a living - but if we are going to get over other forward packs, young guys trying to whack people is where we need to go - not old guys who have learnt all the shortcuts and are using them.

    Yeah for me Maybe Ross for Sio but I think Brown will keep Sio.

    Tempted to start Herm from the bench so to make sure we always have either Dan or Herm on at any time, but considering it’s the roosters we may need all our guns on early to take on their pack.

    This’ll be my first live game in 5 years and I’m going with my mate who supports the Roosters so we better do a bloody repeat of last night or I’ll be in for a tough drive home :lol: also getting there early so can’t wait to see the 3 grades in action as it’s a rarity now. Wouldn’t make too many changes from last night except the obvious Herman back in for any of King/Lillyman/Heighno/Buhrer. Didn’t think Sio was bad like everyone was making him out to be and Denniss was strong for his first game in nearly 2 years.

    Sio got on the outside of his man many times last night and even turned Michael Jennings inside out a few times. Can't drop a winger running over 200m!

    Sio wasnt bad...

    He did take thin air on the one try they scored... He is just slow...

    Stats dont always paint the picture... god look at woods!!

    200m running when ponga put him away twice and he took an intercept and ran 60m...

    SKD was hardly seen and got 170m

    Not a big fan of Sio, generally reliable and safe and certainly not fast, he deserves to stay another game, we won, like Ross because of his style and flare but wouldn't be surprised if they gave someone else a run on wing with Denniss at centre, still waiting to see Hughes in 1sts

    He still put himself there. That's an achievement in itself. Hardly seen skd? Must of watched different games.
