Can only imagine that Eli is injured — I can't imagine that "drop Katoa
" is the conclusion one comes to after watching the Manly game, even if it wasn't his best effort.
If this was Kearney
/Payten then I'd tell you that there is absolutely no chance of Hiku
playing on the wing, and you'd see a reshuffle with Pompey
probably. But I have no idea with Brown and if that's how he operates. We've seen a couple pack/bench reshuffles, so I wouldn't be surprised. Really hope we get that same kind of shuffle this weekend too because that pack looks a bit of a mess.
not making the 17 is a really odd one; thought he started pretty well and should really be in the starting front row with Tohu Harris
moving to 13, Jazz
to the bench. Guess he wants to give Evans a chance to redeem himself — better make the most of it. Curran
making the team out of nowhere as well. Not sure what to make of this.
Dragons aren't as good as their record suggests — at full strength we should roll them. Think it'll be a tight one either way.
