Oh gee, who could have possibly foreseen that moronic test halfway across the world would be detrimental to the only New Zealand team in the comp. In isolation the test is catastrophic - because the club smartly put their foot down. But combined with injuries - which happen to every club, every season and our roster is beyond crippled. The NRL have further exasperated the problem with their limit on squads and teams named.

What a fucking joke. Another 30-0 home game incoming most likely - this time because we're forced to name what amounts to our NSW Cup squad + a few others.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - League administrators across the board are some of the most incompetent people in the sporting world. But it's fine - I'm sure they will resolve it next year, ignorant of the chaos their poor planning has cause ... again.

I think it would absolute madness to play any of the Kiwis boys. With their plane delayed they would only get the captains run on Thursday and the warm up pregame Friday to train for the game. Im sure the training staff and high performance coach is worried sick right about now.

This is our team without the Kiwis and the possible continued injuries to David Fusitua and Solomone Kata.

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2.
3. Peta Hiku
4.
5.
6. Blake Green
7. Shaun Johnson
8. James Gavet
9.
10. Agnatius Paasi
11. Isaiah Papali'i
12. Tohu Harris
13. Adam Blair
14. Karl Lawton
15. Bunty Afoa
16. Chris Satae
17. Simon Mannering

Based on the 27 players we have already used you have the following players you can choose from for positions:

CENTRE/WING
Anthony Gelling
Gerard Beale

HOOKER
Karl Lawton

BENCH
Sam Cook
Sam Lisone
Ligi Sao
Albert Vete
Joseph Vuna

Really that only leaves one outside back spot to fill and the best candidate from the rest to play bench utility/hooker sub. Outside back spot can be filled by either Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad or Blake Ayshford who both are yet to be named in the top 30.

Utility bench is much harder with Jazz Tevaga still injured. I'd look at either Blake Ayshford, Sam Cook or James Bell to fill the spot.

My team list for the Sharks game:

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. Gerard Beale
3. Peta Hiku
4. Blake Ayshford
5. Anthony Gelling
6. Blake Green
7. Shaun Johnson
8. James Gavet
9. Karl Lawton
10. Agnatius Paasi
11. Isaiah Papali'i
12. Tohu Harris
13. Adam Blair

14. Sam Cook
15. Bunty Afoa
16. Chris Satae
17. Simon Mannering

18. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad
20. James Bell
21. Ken Maumalo
22. Issac Luke

That only uses one top 30 spot leaving one for a rainy day and another for any late season signings...


Yes, flying business class half way across the world and sleeping 20hours + pampered and eating quality food is absolutely draining on the body...

Give them a melatonin pill with coke and tell them to harden the fuck up. Works for me every time.

problem solved!!

Oh and if the origin boys can suit up two days after getting bashed no reason our princesses can’t handle an airplane flight and a bit of jet lag. Aye Alex?

Probably should pop a Viagra as well, to get that result.;)

And all this talk about players not being able to back up is just silly. Maybe they won't be as fresh as they'd like to be, but come on. Get up and go hard for the club, for the boys, for the fans.

Then maybe we win this one. Sharks at home. It's got grudge match written all over it.

These games are either super close, or our coach gets sacked at the end of it. And SK isn't going nowhere, so I'm picking a tight one this weekend.:cool:

20 hours of sitting on their arses. No training runs, ice baths, physio, massage, taping, tactic talks, video sessions, set piece practice... No worries though cause you do it all the time playing top flight professional sports by taking a pill.

Righttttt :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:...

Great post. As others have said Hiku is out as he played for the Kiwis.

My back line if no one can back up is

1) Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2) CNK
3) Beale
4) Ayshford
5) Gelling

Those blokes will be acceptable (just no chemistry whatsoever)

We could conceivably get no tries out of that back line. But they would defend crazy well.

Just better hope Johnson carves up. And Green puts a bunch of wing forwards into gaps near the try line.

I thought Fusitua just rolled his ankle before the cows game? Surely he'll make this game. As for Kata, he always seems to back up the next week.

Body clock is a hard thing to get back into synch too, plus the whole altitude flying thing can’t be the best for recovery I’d imagine

The BURGI twin who played showed up at Rabbits training yesterday morning making a farce of the travel fears.

Better organisation and you're back in 24 hours on a Monday.

Wheres the problem ?

The organizers and naysayers making a pretty straight forward exercise seem too hard.

No worries team.

We hardly play with our full compliment and we are in an unlikely position on the table.

This week we have key players in.

The ones who make the others look and play better.

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck. Shaun Johnson. Green. Tohu Harris.

We just need some forward pack commitment and application to unlock the chains on our mixed lollies backline.

Sharks are solid and rep squad laden so stopping them will be no easy feat.

But I've got my believing hat on even if it looks nothing like my logical hat. Remember I backed Q L D?

But I'm loathe not to back our boys.

So.......Warriors!!!!!!!!!!

WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!

WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a huge game for us and could really springboard a top 2 or 3 finish.

After this game we play:

Penrith - Away (no Maloney, Clear, RCG or Peachy).
Brisbane - Away (Origin players backing up)
Storm - Home - Potential Loss
Titans - Away (15 of last 16 won against them)
Dragons - Away - Potential Loss
Knights - Home
Bulldogs - Away
Panthers - Home
Canberra-Home

20 points up for grabs including Sharks game.

Realistically I can see us collecting 14 points out of that 20 (losses to Storm, Dragons, Panthers)

36 Points was good enough for 3rd last season
