You'd think that gives an indication as to who'll be playing at 9 next week? Although Mr Kearney is generally loyal to players, which will benefit Cook and / or Lino.
Are there any games/teams in the Nrl 2018 that can be seen as a safe 2 points. Parra are bottom of the table and beat Tigers today.
We will have a tough game against the Tigers after their 2 losses.
Hinder most likely, no team in the top 8 wants to lose 3 in a row and especially not uncle Ivan against the Warriors.so does tigers losing help or hinder the warriors cause on Sat?
the other thing is the Tigers were here only a few weeks ago, so know what the trip is like, accommodation, the ground etcHinder most likely, no team in the top 8 wants to lose 3 in a row and especially not uncle Ivan against the Warriors.
Players often talk about liking a short turn around after a heavy loss, so the hurt is still fresh in the mind. So will be interesting to see where our heads are at with 10 days to think about it, could be a Broncs game or a Dragons game. Upside for us is the extra time to get the major injuries and niggles extra rest.
Both teams miss alot of tackles, but scramble well. Both give away a lot of penalties also. Our attack is probably better, but the loss of Luke could even that out.

they certainly won't be under-prepared. We are in for a tough, but very winnable game
it would be a great confidence boost if we could do that after coming off the thrashing against the storm.Tigers have that annoying ability to stick close and turn it on, all of their losses have been tight. Hope this is the game we finally let loose and pile on some points
And seem to rely on the fact that they can always fling it around and ride their luck, wriggle around like crazy on the ground and expect penalties and revert to the old 5 up and boot it into the air and hope for a fumble. Not expecting anything different than this from them. We cannot afford to be brought down to their level. Wee have to be clinical, professional and not get dragged into a wrestle.Tigers have that annoying ability to stick close and turn it on, all of their losses have been tight.

One News is reporting that Karl Lawton is a strong chance to play hooker against the Tigers which makes sense, I wasn't sure if he was in our top 30 squad so I guess it answers that question.
A few news outlets have updated our injury list suggesting Beale will be ready for round 9 so someone maybe squeezed out but I'm expecting something close to:
1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. David Fusitua
3. Peta Hiku
4. Solomone Kata
5. Ken Maumalo
6. Blake Green
7. Shaun Johnson
8. James Gavet
9. Karl Lawton
10. Agnatius Paasi
11. Tohu Harris
12. Simon Mannering
13. Adam Blair
14. Jazz Tevaga
15. Bunty Afoa
16. Sam Lisone
17. Anthony Gelling
18. Isaiah Papali'i
19. Tevita Satae
20. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad
21. Mason Lino
