It is pretty remarkable how resilient our team is with its two best non hooking forwards out.

It also highlights how defensively weak their predecessors were.

By in large the Rehab team have been doing a great job bringing people back within the time frames and sometimes earlier.

We are better in all departments.

With Adam Blair most certainly out for this weekends game I think if possible, bring Pulu straight back in and get him on the bench if need to. He left the field injured full of running so he would be hungry to get back in and continue where he left off. Makes sense with an away game at his old stomping ground too so more determination.

Why not give King Vuniyayawa a a chance? We continue to see Fijian players thrive in the NRL and I have always wondered why the Warriors don't chase or develop more Fijian players. Another really good player is Viliame Kikau from the Panthers.

King is unlikely to be in the top 30. So that will stop him from playing.

Would Blair be out with that hit? It didn't even seem late in real time. Really close to giving up on league after what I've seen this year TBH

Yeah completely agree, thought it was very harsh at the time. The only thing I can think of is he didn't try too hard to wrap his arms around the player?

Neither did Smith but at least he had to jump 2ft in the air to connect with Ken's neck. Don't understand why the gumby's in the middle can't look at the replay and see what the fuck happened.

Disappointing and although you can say dumb on the part of Blair, that sort of crap goes unpunished every week. I'm sure I saw SJ get a good elbow to the head in a tackle the week before. I thought the judiciary reviewed every game looking for indiscretion, they must be in the Roy Orbison/Stevie Wonder/ Ray Charles school of observation

Apparently Beale injured his hamstring in the last few minutes.

The bonus is that we are unlikely to carry an outside back on the bench now.

Nice having Hiku there to slot straight in if need be.

A corked calf for Green was also mentioned, so hopefully he recovers.

SJ seemed to be ok after his ankle/foot got stood on.
