Got a feeling, due to the criticism, that Cappy won't pick Lolo in the 17.

As in criticizing him not using Lolo from the bench until the end of the game? I hope he's professional enough that that's not an option and he will pick the team he thinks he can win with.

1 Fusitua
2 Maumolo
3 Ayshford (if he's out, I think Allwood playing against his old club isn't such a bad idea - Lolohea will probably be ahead of him though).
4 Kata
5 Vatuvei (can't see him being dropped)
6 Leuluai
7 Johnson
8 Lillyman
9 Luke
10 Vete
11 Thompson (if he's out, I'd be fine with Afoa starting again).
12 Hoffman
13 Mannering

14 Tevaga
15 Lisone
16 Matulino
17 Gavet
 

Duh herro

What happened to Sipley? Thought he was solid in the few games he played in.

Also maybe Allwood in for Vatuvei to balance out the wings.

*Edit - Afoa was solid, should hopefully get anther chance.

That's what bothers me: Cappy thinks Manu playing for 84 minutes and making errors is better than getting Lolo off the bench. That's his idea of winning...Radio Sport and the Aussie commentators are going off on Cappy's stupidity. I think he'll dig in and not pick Lolo at all, as an act of defiance.

I'd be comfortable enough with that side, I'm still willing to see his designs on the big back three and how that shapes up in dry conditions but a power game against Canberra is the way to go, we need to fight fire with fire in this one.

I hope so badly that you are wrong. But only Cappy knows.

If ashfords out I'd play bodene at center, keep afoa where he is- that way you've got them both hitting holes off Shaun Johnson.
It would make for a solid defensive edge too.
