Sorry mate but if you're rating Mahoney below Brailey at the Knights you might want to go back and watch some of the games they've both played this year.

Mahoney is an elite 9 and is up there with Smith/Korisau 😬

You should make a thread called Wrighty's Hookers Of The Year

Actually I pretty much agree with all that.
I’d probably have Robson a bit higher.
 
Every year we seem to make far more late changes than any other team. Is it a planned big brain surprise tactic or do we just have no clue what we're doing?

Let's be honest, probably both.
Noting Montoya was out with injury last week, probably just that for him. I kind of buy into the theory that Berry can play Phins finals and Vailea can't since he's only played 3 games for them.

Why name them to start then? Other clubs would name them on reserves and bring them in if they were fit, instead of doing it arse about face. I know it's the same result at the end of the day but you just don't see the top clubs having 3-4 changes every single week, especially the weekly schamozzle of naming Bunty at starting lock.

Well, this has made the game slightly less interesting. Berry was lost in first grade early in the season but has been one of the form centres in the qld cup the last month or so. Was curious to see how much that translated to first grade.

Kosi is just Kosi, short term stopgap and I think Montoya was a very poor centre compared to his wing play.

Glad Vaelia is getting another run.

Pompey has a year left on his contract and I doubt he gets another.
