17. ??? No point in having an extra prop, and a second rower appears destined to sit on the bench for 80 minutes.

p.s. Watch as this game comes down to Princess VS Richards and we lose by 2 because Golden Boot can't kick a conversion.

I don't think its a matter of mass change. Its a matter of individual player accountability and a change in attitude. I don't think we are that far off. We are at our best as a club when Matulino is carting the ball forward (which he is), Johnson is running the ball (which he started to tonight), and we have players on the edge who can break tackles, which we have... its individual concentration. Its a collective to control the ball to at least the 60 metre mark to give the halves the platform to exploit overworked defenders. At the moment we aren't giving Chad or Shaun those opportunities because of really simple, dumb, errors, from players who should know better.

With that said, I would suggest the following

1 Tuimoala Lolohea
2 Ngani Laumape
3 Konrad Hurrell - I'm sure he will be better for the run, he seemed to be trying too hard, and just needs a nice simple message on his role particularly coming out from danger
4 Solomone Kata - bad miss on Fonua early on, but his positional work other than that was good.
5 Manu Vatuvei
6 Chad Townsend
7 Shaun Johnson
8 Jacob Lillyman
9 Thomas Leuluai
10 Ben Matulino
11 Bodene Thompson
12 Ryan Hoffman
13 Simon Mannering (c)

Nathan Friend
Sam Lisone
Albert Vete

can we make people choose an actual 17 instead of endlessly bracketing players in positions so they end up naming 25 players? it kinda defeats the purpose.

Kata if he's not in NSW Cup to practice his passing, he needs to be playing on the wing.
The only changes I'd make would be Kata in for Wright and Laumape to the #4 jersey.
When is Fish due back? Was it round 6? Tempted to put him at FB and Lolohea at center if Laumape isn't back.

Anyone who doesn't give the ball to the Tigers on the first is ok by me at this stage..

And some nice combinations in the back line would be good as well.. So I'd keep Manu, Kata, Hoffman and Chad together...

The right edge is truly fucked, so I'd stack it with defenders and hope for the best.

Shaun Johnson to play like JT on both sides.... He can work his magic from wherever he wants... with Chad organizing both sides in support.

Our forwards are awesome IMO. Bring back Vete and that's about it...

One foot in front of the other...

I thought Bodene Thompson really stood up tonight. Made some hard runs. Some try saving tackles. 96 metre's. 40 tackles. Mutts had a blinder. 177 metre's. Jake made 126 metre's. Forwards win you games. Backs lose you games. We can name any team we like. But until we start rolling up our sleeves. It's pointless. We're at home this week. We will get a better ten metre's. Just get in a grind with the Tigers. We need a tough close game. Where our outside backs are the ones making the breaks and metre's. No flash offloads. No pushed passes. Just a hard endless grind that goes on and on. That's what we need. We need to win without Sam for our mental strength. The forwards will take us home but we need the backs to stand up and run into the line. Not around it. I'm still confident. But we need change.

Cops a bit of shit and some of it is warranted but we would have so many more tries scored down an already leaky right edge if he wasnt there. Only person who could do his job better is Simon Mannering. Thats a compliment...

Same team but with Laumape pushing Kata out to the wing in the place of wright.
Would love for Fish to come straight in at wing if fit but as the Konnie decision showed anything id say Fish would need a week or 2 in nsw cup to get up to speed.
See how kata and Lolohea go next week and replace the worse one with Fish the week after.
