The sironen selection made sense with the injury to katoa and the Chanel Harris-Tavita thing, he actually isnt half bad as a half. I dont like him when there isnt an injury but i see the use of him as a safety net.

I can use Chanel Harris-Tavita as long as Johnson is pairing him, he does provide some steel on defense.

I think give the same team some more reps, they are definitely not in sync yet but maybe another week and combos will develop some more.

Just been watching the warriors v dragons replay. i know this might not be a popular opinion but i think Nikorima and Shaun Johnson might actually be the right halves pairing moving forward. They have a connection that I think started in England, if you look at the behind the scenes of alot of the plays they are setting things up together, sometimes kodi would jump in to dummy half because he knows what shaun is trying to do, i know thats counter intuitive to what weve seen I just think if we're comparing the last 3 combos weve had that Shaun Johnson and Kodi look to have the most points in them and the most expansive offence of the lot. Its actually amazing to watch Shaun Johnson when he demands the ball, the service is better and they give him the ball in the right place. I would just throw it out there that there is something there with him and kodi that if you add the walsh element could actually turn our offence around. I believe it would need the next 2 games between the broncs and cowboys to see if it works.

The other option is you have Chanel Harris-Tavita at 6 and kodi at 14 who comes on as hooker, i believe he adds value at that position and can help Shaun Johnson setup alot of plays especially around the ruck. We just need all men healthy to see the value of it. Unfortunately injury has deprived us of seeing these combos in action.

Your right, not popular.

Chanel Harris-Tavita engages more than Kodi. Kodi should drop off if Johnson is fit.

Brisbane are a pretty fragile bunch, once things start going bad for them they get into ruts, so good result for us yesterday, they'll be getting the media pressure this week, and they haven't responded well to it in recent years.

This is the week to move Aitken into Berry's spot - doesn't have to be permanent, just feed Rocco some supplements for a fortnight and when there's an injury he can come back.

Sironen or Murchie can take Aitkens spot with the other one on the bench. Ben Murdoch-Masila is a bench only player IMO.

Johnson if fit, for Nikorima and if Pene is injured, rotate Lodge to the bench where he can play longer minutes, then can play Otukolo for 25 minutes as Jazz would be the other bench middle, Bunty can start.
