I would rest Sheck, Green, Johnson and Luke for next week, unessesary risk.
Lino in for Johnson, Hiku in for Green, Lawnton in for Luke and Fusitua at Fullback.
Gelling at Center. Spine needs a week off.

The club loves players going to Kearneys office and asking him how can they improve.

Ken should meet every week and ask how can I score more Trys.

Next weeks changes will be Green for Lino....Pulu will be given a stupid Jersey number yet play.

Good to see him running alongside Shaun Johnson, when Shaun Johnson made a clean break, Pulu was flying....seemed to play some good minutes too.

How bizarre to see Mannerings offload and passes stick. An old Dog plays new tricks after 299 games.

The right edge with Tohu Harris back is red hot, hasn't skipped a beat.

Look forward to getting a measure on Tohu Harris Beale....since Hiku is still getting bounced off like a bludger.

Hiku has the advantage of a preseason with those combinations, I'd be looking at a Wing spot for him next year.

Penrith leaked points....you cant expect Warrior Maths ( score two concede one) to get this side anywhere with Hiku at Center....it just doesn't win competitions.
....because you cant outrun bad defence in a defensive comp.

Who drops out for Beale ?

Has to be Pita dont it ?

If its Pulu, SK has made a bad call imo....dont think he will tho....but who knows hes the boss type....will back his own beliefs.

Having said all that about Hiku I love his talent and wont sook if we take the risk option...go PITA....tackle up.
We need tevaga in 1 spot and 3 forwards on the bench to match the raiders massive pack.

I wouldn’t be resting to many players. Win and the Warriors could have a home game.

What about hiku gor Kata? Make that left edge just as dangerous as the right

True but there away record is a lot better then our come record. Just a theory of mine but maybe the lads perform better when they are have that couple days together team bonding. It’s a new culture from previous years.

Sometimes a weeks “rest” can really mess up a teams mojo and put them out of sync with their rhythm.

Unless theirs a niggling injury I suggest we soldier on and put 50 on Stewart and watch him blow up at the presser.

I know it’ll never happen and it’s probably not warranted but I’d actually drop Maumalo for a game even it’s under the guise of rest just to let him
Know it’s about the team and not him. He hasn’t celebrated any of Katas try’s last few games and looked pretty disinterested tonight. I know it must be hard seeing Fusitua rack up try after try and your greedy centre not put you into any open space but he needs to realise as long as the team wins that’s all that matters. Hope he proves me wrong next week and plays with a little bit more passion

Green and Captain Marvellous are the only ones who i recall setting Ken up.

I lie. G.Reedy passed to him against the Cowboys at mt smart.

Ken has a role outside being a winger and it's vital.

His carries are key to our go forward.

He also has the option to go infield more to get the ball.

I like what he has done this year infinitely more than G.Reedy.

I'm still the president of the drop G.Reedy club.

There’s no better sight at a press conference than seeing Sticky’s veins on his forehead exploding ;)

Yeah I'm in the treat-this-like-a-final camp and only rest players for injury.

We want to give ourselves best chance to win and win big if we can.
We are still 30-50 odd points differential behind Sharks & Dragons, so sweating on some upsets to reclaim our spot in the top 4.

Quite interesting that the Sharks and Dragons both face the Dogs and Knights in consecutive weeks, after we faced them ourselves in consecutive weeks as those are the key games (aside from our own against the Raiders) that will determine how high up we can can climb the ladder.

Agree, plus it's manners 300th and we really need to win at home for him so would rather have the strongest team possible

From what I heard that's what they did before this match.

Luke is out of gas so I would rest him. And would rest one of Green and SJ as Lino went great guns.

And still try to win.

I'll be really annoyed if Hiku isn't retained. I think its pretty clear by now that right side attack and especially Fusitua benefit hugely from his presence there. He should be the first centre picked, Beale can slog it out with Kata......I'd probably go Beale but is he gonna be any better than Kata at getting the ball to Ken? He was pretty shite with Fusitua, but he probably passes right to left better. Kata is a much bigger threat ball in hand than Beale so yeah not entirely sure with that one.

Raiders are a serious threat.

They are defending really well against the top sides in the comp last two games.

Way better team than Penrith and the Bulldogs.

Should have been in the eight....based on current form should have been in top four.

They are a stacked team and had lots of close run loses, but their halves consistency is mud. Who knows what team will show up next week.
