    Still no Matterson but otherwise full strength. I assume that when Matto comes back the baptist will not be there.

        I'd get rid of Aubusson for Collins, move Liu to 2nd row and start Taukeiaho at lock.
        Or bring Butcher in for Aubusson and start Victor.
        Any time the ball goes to the right side of the field the play breaks down when it gets to Aubusson. He either collapses at the first sight of contact or runs 30m sideways or backwards.
        Also no real need for Baptiste either if we don't play him or when we do there's 7 mins left particularly when you can put Victor there in case of an emergency

            Lui is not much better, ball tucked under the arm with no intention whatsoever to pass evn if an overlap. add Corner to that list, this team has no second phase play in them at all. Probably not the players fault, coached that way, the ROOSTERS WAY!! Bloody boring.

              guarantee we get at least 1 player binned for a late hit on a kicker/playmaker, Cummins would love nothing more to screw us.

                    As much as I'd like to see Radley as starting hooker this isn't going to happen so I'd like to see him or SST/Liu in place of Aubusson in the starting side. Aubusson to the bench to cover a multitude of positions (hooker/back row/centre) and Baptiste nowhere to be seen.

                    We are playing against one of the best packs and yet we have Baptiste and Radley on the bench. Any one of Collins, FPN or the silly farmer in place of Baptiste would be better in my opinion.

                    I have nothing against Baptiste but for 7 - 10 minutes a game that is a serious waste of a bench spot. "Wake up and smell the coffee" Robinson!

                      I think more like a succession of penalties against us on our tryline, then a player in the bin. I knew that in Newcastle we would have someone sent in the second half. Being up by 8 at half time, it was obvious that it would take a special effort for the Knights to come back and the refs knew it. No doubt the refs would have been reminded that were 20 thousand Knights supporters at the ground who had not come to see their team cop a beating. Also they wanted a tight match for the lead in to the 7.30pm match.

                      ...

                        Try 3 minutes in 160 minutes.

                        friend won’t come off unless our sniper takes him out - this not not how a true capt leads

                          Aubo is definitely NOT a starting back rower.

                            Aubo has lost his legs and isn't very effective as a backrower and is better suited off the bench to cover any injuries . We need either Jared or sst on the field at all times otherwise we don't have a big metre making prop on the field. Baptiste can be replaced on the bench by butcher as Robbo refuses to give him any game time.

                              I agree that a big forward has to come in for Baptiste. HIAs are so common and if we lose a prop early we're in trouble.

                              Where as if Friend goes down we have Radley anyway. Baptiste is an absolute waste and not even a valuable utility in case of injury.

                              Even Ikavalu would be better to cover an injury to a winger!
