Having Blake Ayshford on the bench makes more sense than Tuimoala Lolohea. Ayshford has at least played lock and second row so isnt a specialist back waiting for an injury. That being said it still baffles me that he would reshuffle the team once again for some horses for courses thing. Truth is this is just another classic Cappy overthink.

Oh well, your funeral mate...

Palavi and Lane must really be playing badly to be overlooked for a rangy centre who hasn't played second row in like 3 years? Da fuqqqq

True. But he already has Jazz covering lock n 2nd row (another debatable call imo). So unless there's 2 injurys in the pack I cant see Ayshford getting game time but in the backline or if at all.

Ffs Cappy you don't make it any easier.

Both offer no impact.

I'd prefer Ayshford over both. Lane was the worst purchase/swap. I'd take RFM over him anyday, even with his defensive woes.

well I'm looking forward to seeing that backline in action. Could be diamonds or rocks but will be interesting either way.

Yeah. I haven't followed NSW cup closely, but thought they may have upped their game to try and gain selection. From what I saw though, Palavi's just a giant marshmallow and Lane is equally as soft.

Yeah there is some versatility in Ashford- he's even played 5/8 before so I don't actually mind him as a bench option tbh.
The thing that shits me tho is we're chopping and changing the outside backs again:mad:.
I said at the start of the year I wasn't a big Ashford fan and would go with konnie and sol but I was happy to go with whatever cappy decided as long as he stuck to it.
All last year we were switching centers almost weekly and while this year we've had some stability there it's been the wingers turn to play musical chairs. Those outside back combinations are so important and take time to build and now we're starting all over again...
Why didn't he just stick with Blake and Fusitua on the right- tui at fullback- that was working.

Oh well if we win all is forgiven but what if we lose?
Just roll out another combo next week I suppose.
Konnie must be laughing his head off.

I like Tevaga but I don't see any point of having him there.
Fucked up.

Especially now that Luke is playing 80. He'll replace Bunty at some stage and then we'll have 3 tacklebot backrowers who cant break/dent the line on....yippee...

Palavi's better than that, he's a good defender with a solid tackle technique similar to Mannering's ball and all tackles IMO.

Put forwards on the wing.

Put back on the bench for back cover just encase.

Does seem weird because if we went with four forwards and no back cover it's not like Cappy has some adversion to putting a forward into the backline.

PS. This thread simply refuses to disappoint. Nice work guys.

Hmmm ... I think I finally see what is happening here

I am now 99.9% certain that McFadden religiously reads this forum & is actually a savant autistic troll ... pure genius ... playing this place like a fiddle

Ayshford on the bench is indeed a strange one, but I think I now see the method in the madness

Andrew "Trollmaster" McFadden is composing his masterpiece & will drop Ayshford altogether & relegate Lolohea back to the bench replacing him in the starting lineup with none other than .... Jonathan Wright

In turn causing a catastrophic meltdown that will turn this site into a dead barren wasteland for 1000 years :eek:

Well played Cappy you evil genius ... well played indeed sir :p :D

Andrew McFadden, the biggest idiot of alltime

Warriors season so far :
Loose a bunch of games at the start of the season
Start stringing together a few decent wins against reputable teams
Decides to take further action making changes to the team, however Warriors have not won a single game since these changes

I vote we go back to the old team that won some footy, swapping Charlie Gubb for another Forward

All the back to Round 13 vs the Broncos

Team Lineup

1 Tuimoala Lolohea
2 David Fusitua
3 Blake Ayshford
4 Solomone Kata
5 Manu Vatuvei
6 Thomas Leuluai
7 Shaun Johnson
8 Jacob Lillyman
9 Issac Luke
10 Albert Vete
11 Bodene Thompson
12 Ryan Hoffman(c)
13 Simon Mannering

14 Nathaniel Roache
15 Sam Lisone
16 Ben Matulino
17 Charlie Gubb

Thompson to come in for Afoa with Ayshford dropping off the bench?

So does anyone know if Ayshford is carrying an injury or is this form related?
Got it in one bro either Thompson or Vete comes in for Blake whoever is most recovered
Edit: Fit or not, in form or not, still a ridiculous selection. It's the norm for us though I guess..

seriously though... Cappy is a genius
Who spread that rumour that SGH said he was world class? One change that has me wondering is putting Fusitua outside Shaun Johnson. Ayshford had formed a good understanding of Shaun Johnson's play, no matter what, and now he benches him. BTW no matter what people say about Manu he scored a brilliant try last week. He still has to be watched by the opposition defence.
