  1. BigGuns DA Astele

    He was named there last week.
  2. BigGuns DA Astele

    Granted it was a late reshuffle.
  3. BigGuns DA Astele

    Won't be long term. Thompson will be back next week.
  4. Fiery GR Smith

    Yes he was
  5. Fiery GR Smith

    Thomas Leuluai returns to the bench, after an extended absence through injury, but Vatuvei drops out with a hamstring strain.
  6. Fiery GR Smith

    Lolohea named at stand-off for Bulldogs game. SJ back to 7 and SFAP Robson gone from 17

  7. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Fuck I'd be pissing my pants if I was your [MENTION=168]Fiery[/MENTION] $1000 is a lot of money....
  8. Fiery GR Smith

    Not really. Still fairly confident the Warriors can turn things around...especially now that we have a decent halves pairing. It's only a couple of days work for me anyway if I do lose.

    (And I doubt I'll have to pay out anyway, unless MF comes out of the woodwork before then)
  9. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Yeah but a couple of days work down the drain is still demoralising. I don't know much about league but fuck I hope you win it.
  10. Fiery GR Smith

    I can't see him paying out even if I do win but anyway...

    ...there were other changes for the Warriors. "Lolohea's move into the middle has opened the door for David Fusitu'a to make a return to the wing, having not played in first grade since July last year.Veteran winger Manu Vatuvei hasn't fully recovered from a hamstring injury, giving Fusitu'a the chance to add to his nine NRL tries.
    There have also been significant movements in the forward pack, with Bodene Thompson returning to the second row after three games out with injury.
    Thompson's inclusion pushes former skipper Simon Mannering back to loose forward, while Sam Lisone receives a starting berth as Jacob Lillyman drops to the interchange bench."

    Hey [MENTION=2357]Rego[/MENTION]. Speaking of bets...are we still on for the Chiefs v Canes game? Double or nothing?
  12. Rego RS Hutchinson

    I'm keen but will wait for lineups etc. You'd suspect the Chiefs may be favourites in that one tbh so may not be worth my while, will wait and see. Nevertheless I'm organising a group of us to go to it because it should be an awesome match. I really hope my Canes get up but dunno tbh. We were better against the Jaguares, I'll comment on it after our match against the Rebels. Chiefs coming off the bye could work both ways of course. Nevertheless should be a goodie. Chiefs defence could be a teller tbh.
  13. Paddy P Orr

    Tuivasa-Sheck out for the rest of the season. Did his ACL against the Bulldogs.

    what's the bet he never regains his supreme footwork? i've definitely noticed it a lot less this season.
  16. Fiery GR Smith

  17. Paddy P Orr

    Probably won't regain it and if he does it probably won't be for a couple of years. Fullbacks that tend to rely on footwork like that tend to struggle for a fair time after their return. Bowen had that issue for the Cows years back after double ACL injuries. I guess though Sheck still being 22 who knows maybe he can regain that supreme footwork.

    Meh. Lolohea is just as good as his replacement anyway. And Leuluai into the halves. She'll be right.
  19. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    That's horrible for him seeing his whole game revolves around footwork.
  20. Julian BJ Taylor

    Probably the end of him as a star
