41375

After the Round 19 game against the Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 20 game against the Canberra Raiders at Mt Smart Stadium?

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

Discuss...

I know everyone's been bagging Ashford and Beale a bit and wanting to get Herb and Fusitua back in asap but I can't help feel even though they are athletically inferior they make better decisions and overall fit into the team unit better. I also like having AK on bench simply because he covers so many god damn positions.

Definitely smarter footballers with their experience over atheism.

They got owned by sivo in that try but got it together for the rest of the game. probably fired them up. No one likes being man-handled like that.

Giving Fusitua and Herbert a break from FG is a good thing. They can come back fresh.

Papalii needs a break too. I think he could be mentally fatigued playing 80mins every week. Needs a break to freshen up.
 
I don't care. As long as someone takes a big fuck off banner to the game that reads,
" IF THE NRL DOESN'T WANT US, WHO WANTS TO START A PACIFIC ISLAND LEAGUE?"

8 teams.

Auckland
Wellington
Christchurch
Waikato
Tonga
Samoa
Fiji
Papua New Guinea

Play each other twice home and away. Fuck the NRL

Don't really care, I won't be watching. The NRL is rigged so what's the point?

Maybe Super League would've been better...

It’s a dirty word particularly in Sydney, but I think the idea was correct if not the execution. How Perth, Brisbane 2, Wollongong and Adelaide are gone (as well as Gold Coast temporarily) but we still have too many Sydney teams is nuts. Another example of Sydney having too much influence

Unfortunately all the players will go play Nrl for another club. Nothing like getting paid for playing footy.

With SL you have the awful one sided commentary to put up with and
any ‘good solid tackle’ is a send off offence - if your not actually British 🇬🇧

Luke probably being out really sucks. He was starting to find very good form.

Can Lawton play 80 minutes at a high level is the question? Tevaga may have to play hooker for a while. I really like him at 13 though. Or Nikorima starts at 6 and moves to hooker when Chanel Harris-Tavita comes on.

Another option is to start with Nikorima at hooker and leave Chanel Harris-Tavita at 6. Then have Lawton/AK on the bench. I like this much better.

Herbert hopefully comes in for Ayshford and Fusitua for Beale.

With Luke available I would say the game is 50/50. Has to be 60/40 in Raiders favour although they have a 5 day turnaround which works in our favour.

My first reaction was why would you do that when AK was Center of the year in ISP in 2018, Chanel Harris-Tavita's defence was good last week and he has a bit of pace so might be worth a crack but makes me a bit nervous chucking a rookie at Center.
my only reason on Chanel Harris-Tavita was that he seems to be ahead of AK in the pecking order at the moment and is in need of more first grade time. He also provides plenty of speed on that side (sorely lacking at the moment) and a difference on attack. AKmay be the better body, but I just havent seen him out there to know much about him.
