Wouldn't be opposed to Sean O'Sullivan taking over from Chad for a week, depending on how the shoulder is holding up - I think it makes him too much of a liability on defence though.

Niko really needs a week or two in reserves to give him a kick up the ass. Put some effort in or piss off.

Any lineup will give us as good a chance of a win as any will do as long as Nicorima is not 6 or 7.......come on Brownie this whole site knows it and you've wanted more running out of him in the past ....Nico is Hooker coover and off bench rotation at the most.
If you give the fans what they want ,they'll be more likely to be more patient with you and cut you some slack.
If you resist the obvious you are tempting fate and asking for trouble.

If Lodge gets suspended then we have a massive crisis in the forwards - Fonua-Blake and Harris are pretty much non-starters. We have a policy of resting failed HIAs so Murchie and Katoa are likely out. Sironens shoulder looked dodgy. Taunoa-Brown is with the Dragons and who knows how recovered Ale is from his injury. At this rate we might be putting Frei and Pettersen-Robati in our 21.

Ugh would rather we just forfeited last week than lose our two gun props. Without them we have no x factor and actually are fielding a worse team than the poor tigers. Can we recall Jamayne Tounua-Brown? Surely that's the point of this setup, we lost 2 props in a week and now he's moved up the pecking order.

One would hope so. Dragons have only sat out 3 of their 7 forwards with suspensions so far so will try to dig their heels in one would imagine.
Lol now we can chuck the Fijian prospect into locks, what an incredible year with injuries
He ain't officially on our books let alone in our 'bubble'. Think he came off injured today for Redcliffe too

My line up is assuming that Lodge is suspended, and Addin Fonua-Blake finger break leaves him out. Murchie didn’t look good but hope he’s available. Sironen is banged up but have named him for versatility .. It’s pretty bleak times.
I read that the club have a policy of resting players who fail HIAs for the next game which is why Roger Tuivasa-Sheck sat out. Will we have to break that policy just to name a 21 this week?
