Pick Your Team 2021 Rnd 15 - Knights vs Warriors

Knights1

After the Round 14 game against the Melbourne Storm at Central Coast Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 15 game against the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium?

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

Discuss...

Wayde egan went to hospital brownie says he is no chance next week.
They are fairly confident Chanel has done his pec and will be out for the rest of the season.

Unpopular opinion - we’re a better team with out Roger at fullback. Hell of a player and one of my favourites of all time, but the way the Warriors have used him has meant he’s largely ineffective. He’s too easy to shut down as other teams know what he’s going to do.

Give him roving commission on the Wing or at Centre.

1. Walsh
6. Kodi
7. O’Sullivan
9. Young fulla

A positive from today was Kosi in my mind. Looked far more confident today, and didn't look out of place. I'd be happy for him to play again if Berry is sidelined also.

What's bugged me about this season is not knowing who is in our best back, who is a prop, who's a lock and who is a second rower. Seems every week we have a different incarnation. I think largely Brown is doing an OK job with what he's got, but this is doing my head in a little. I would go;

Walsh
Kosi
Montoya/Berry
Aitken
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
Nikorima
Sean O'Sullivan
Ah Mau
Tevaga :(
Ben Murdoch-Masila (like him in the middle early)
Curran
Murchie
Harris

Otukolo
Sironen
Afoa
Addin Fonua-Blake (Storm had all ball when he came on. Knights would struggle to contain the big man off the bench)

Ben Murdoch-Masila played 45 minutes and did a paltry 6 hit ups.
Was pumped up about him playing prop and thought it was a creative answer to our lack of go forward at prop. However he seemed to hang of the fringe of the ruck and wasn;t trucking it up with many prop-like hit ups.

To be honest I was hoping one of the other props would take his spot. I don’t know why we would have Bunty, Ah Mau, Evans and Addin Fonua-Blake - and then Ben Murdoch-Masila starting.

Hes played his best on an edge causing havoc after 20-30 minutes when teams are starting to tire.

Brown said in the presser his initial leaning for next week was
1) Walsh to Full Back
2) Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to wing
3) Sean O'Sullivan to replace Chanel Harris-Tavita
Sean O'Sullivan is the game manager to replace Chanel Harris-Tavita. I would arguably have Sean O'Sullivan as the more complete 7 right now, albeit Chanel Harris-Tavita has longer term potential (and is a kiwi), hence the preference.

If Walsh played in the halves be is better suited to replace Kodi in the running role. Having said that, Walsh is probably a better organiser than Chanel Harris-Tavita as well…
