Pick Your Team 2016 Rnd 16 - Sharks vs Warriors

NRL+Rd+9+Sharks+v+Warriors+i-AedKoXZDrx.jpg

After the Round 15 game against the Sydney Roosters at Mt Smart Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 16 game against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Southern Cross Group Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

Discuss...

Almost agree with you. From the post match discussion lots to be admired about Sipley's game, not much said about Lisone's (watched the game on a smartphone), although they're both great prospects for the future of this club. Based on the threads - Sipley ahead of Lisone. Ata is a great call. As good as TL is/was or can be, he hasn't delivered to even his expectations. Perfect time to bleed the talent one in a critical part of the season. He can handle.

Cappy hinted that TL would not be available with such a short turnaround to consider, either Robson with experience or Ata for talent, i'm thinking he's going to put Robson in there, could be a huge expectation on Ata to perform against the sharks, in sydney, a fairly daunting prospect

I'm nervous about this one, but I agree with the above.

We can definitely pull off a win. It'll just be one hell of a grind and our defence will have to be fully up to it.

Lets Gone Warriors!

Thats the sort of attitude thats fucked us for 21 years ... get him in there .... he will run at the line .. will get smashed at some stage .... but wont bother him .... closest thing to a decent 5/8 we have had in eons ...lolo spilt center Fusitua at the back kata wing

Against the sharks too so its easy to throw out that, oh....he knows how a lot of the sharks play, so he brings in that knowledge/experience as well....blah blah blah
Ata was the 18th man today, so he's next cab off the rank...he should be playing next week if TL is out.
It was a huge shift in Cappy's thinking to use Maumalo instead of Wright...basically thinking of the future of the warriors rather than self preservation...I hope that extends to Ata/Robson situation

If Tommy is out you gotta give Ata his turn, in a match we're not expected to win there won't be so much pressure on him to perform so he can just compete as best he can. I'd also be inclined to leave Bull out and save him for Titans, unless Tof is suspended then he needs to play. If Manu isn't a hundy try Ken again and hope the heavens open up because Holmes will kill him otherwise. Although not expected to win we could cause an upset with the Sharks having a disrupted week because of origin.

Ata vs Robbie or Tui does cappy think robbo is a solid Option?
Or does cappy go to tui both of these he's done before
or does he roll the dice with ATA
team naming Tuesday should be good
hopefully we don't get a wing on the bench

Ata to debut against a top 4 team away from home... I think Cappy is way to conservative for that.

Robson to come in for TL if he is out, Manu for Ken, and Lillyman for Sipley I reckon.

Would love to see Hingano..

When's Manu back?
Could go with maumalo and Manu on the wings, Fusitua fullback, tui and Shaun Johnson in the halves.

That's what I'd go with.
Robson is past it, and really can't see Cappy throwing Ata into this game head first.
Hopefully Tommy is sweet though then it doesn't matter, same backline that started against the Chooks.

Just taking a risk of putting Bully on for 80.

Maumalo covers both wings and second row so we have to shuffle all the other injury risks.

Just a roll of the dice team this week.

Toafofoa Sipley has been cited by the NRL match review committee for dangerous contact but won't miss any matches with an early guilty plea.

This game shapes as one of the best of the season IMO, we have a good chance of winning this one

Can see this being a grind, our forwards are going to have to stand up against a pretty impressive sharks pack, in Fifita, Gallen, Graham etc..

Few intriguing battles, Bird vs. Kata, Hoffman vs. Graham, Maloney vs. Shaun Johnson, Matulino vs. Fifita..

Sharks are the most in form team in the comp, we're finding some good form too, really looking forward to this one..

Lillyman to replace … Lisone, Sipley has a real impact.

Would play Robson if TL can’t. It’d be really chucking Hingano in the deep end, maybe that’d be for the best, imagine if he killed it and held his place with TL to the bench? Exciting.

Cappy’s track record is pretty safety first though.

Wouldn’t rush Manu back either, can just see him limping off after turning to chase someone, Sharks are a LOT more sophisticated in the spine than the roosters, so a hooker on the wing would be exposed, the roosters can't even pass the ball beyond the centre.
