Has he got his wingers the wrong way round? Kata and Wright have played the last couple of games together. Whats the need to change it now? Fusitua and Shaun Johnson have created a bit of magic in the past, and also playing outside Ashford might help Fusitua? Why change previous combination?
I think wright is a solid winger, I don't understand the hate he gets, he is a solid worker on defence and is an intelligent player, he is more of a poacher which is what he is used for not breaking gaps left,right and center like lolohea. Solid lineup looking forward to Saturdays game, although I feel like the bulldogs are one of our bogey sides just like manly but we did beat them at the nines if that counts for anything.
Good call, Sao's got a big motor and had a solid game in NSW Cup and Hurrell's not the super sub McFadden was hoping for, unfortunately for Konnie he doesn't have the footy sense to be playing out of position in the forwards, his marker penalty was a classic example of that the other night. I'd like to think you could give him a run on the wing but ....

Sao needs to be in there IMO. Wouldn't surprise me if he actually starts on gameday with Mannering shifting out and Thompson moving to the bench if Cappy doesn't feel he's quite ready for 80 minutes.
My only concern with Lolohea is how he defends because he'll be targeted pretty ruthlessly by the Dogs (same with Fusitua most likely). If we get go forward and a few offloads (please let there be support play) that spine can cut up on footwork alone.
My feelings on the game have been upgraded from "meh" to "curious".
Whilst Im happy to see Tui get a run where Ive always wanted him to play I hope Cappy isnt throwing him to the wolves. We'll see how well playing on the wing has helped develop his halves game if it has at all...
Happy days here we come.
Dogs have a 5 day turn a round and have a flight over.
Good to see the bullet has been bitten.
Konnie will play reserve grade this week. Shit he played it on sunday as well didnt he.
