Seems stupid dropping Havili after his best game, when we have on our bench a second rower returning from injury and a prop who made zero to no impact last time he played.
But not as stupid as pondering whether to watch the bore blacks instead..
or it might show exactly why Friend is selected every week.........Friend is a true Warrior but a timely injury from him would be great timing.. put him out for a month.. see what Havili and co can really do. Would love to see lulu-eye back too.. Him at Hooker would be huge!!
I just think it is about not overloading these youguns too soon too fast.
One of the biggest complaints about our younguns has been their attitude....big heads....years of spoiled brat , take for granted arrogance.
Transitioning people like Havili in and out of Fg makes sense to me.....long term approach which might upset fans in the short term but long term it makes for balanced players.
Hmm I'm not sure on this one, I believe its the Friend is a 80 minute hooker and Havili should be getting his minutes up in the Vulcans instead of taking a bench spot debate.
I don't really agree and have always liked a two hooker roation ala Mears and Death, Marsh and Tony, Henderson and Gattis, Heremaia and Hohaia.
Kind of gutted we let Godinet go actually.
Here is a question, would you rather have a hooker rotation of Heremaia and Godinet or Friend and Havili?
Andrew McCullough reportedly out for a month for Broncos. WIll be tough for the Broncos with him and Parker gone and Thaiday, Hunt, Gillett and Hodges backing up.
most of Brisbane's, Morons will back up and have blinders as they usually do, I can see Sammy Thaiday playing his heart out but to no avail, and us taking it out in the last twenty by at least 14+ points it'll be close most of the game but they will fade...Corey Parker is reportedly unavailable to face the Warriors on Saturday due to his facial fracture.
