I have a really bad feeling... (R.I.P. MCA aside)

Warriors - 14
Broncocks - 28

FTS - McCulloch
MOM - Glenn
So Inu isn't even on extended bench now. I assume God will stay with Ta'ai going.

Godinet and Inu have both been named in the Vulcan's edited line up. So it looks like Ta'ai is staying, unfortunately.

Well let's hope nothing happens to Ropo or we are focked

Yeah that is kinda interesting, i cant see Bluey having no option to cover fullback if Ropo go's down again, maybe Tupou would have the best hope of covering in an
absolute emergency...the other wing and centers are no hope.

I suppose Locke couldn't make a miracle recovery...could he?

Wishful thinking;)


The God was on that extended bench as cover for Shaun Johnson - not as a bench hooker. If Shaun Johnson is fit, the God will be playing for the Vulcans and Ta'ai will retain his spot. I can't see Bluey heading into this game with Lillyman playing his first game of the season and dropping the other extra prop off the bench for an extra option at hooker.

the head to head pattern suggests the boys are due to win this one and the next one against the broncos.

based on form this year the broncos should be far to good and get the win easily. I will tip the boys for a win though

broncos 20
