    Watching tonight's Panthers v a Eels game I noticed that Gutherson really had very little involvement. However when Norman went off, he moved to 5/8, and took over the goal kicking when Gordon went off. I know it won't happen often, if at all, but it made him look like a better option.

    Did he play right CTR or wing mate?

    watch out for fisher-harris he looked the best Panthers forward.

    Gutherson will get plenty of attacking stats and will be a decent NPR

    Semi wont get as many tries this year, a lot less of those cut out balls that put him away with Jennings there

    Tupou never had a problem scoring tries with Jennings outside him so I don't think it would be too bad. They might go to Jennings more but Jennings set up his winger very well a lot of the time.

    JFH will hopefully see some game time this year. Gus has spoken very highly of him.

    As Shanbon said a lot of tries for Tupou was kicks. Also Simona is a much better CTR than Jennings at setting up his winger.

    coming from someone that bet on him for first try scorer every week I can confirm that isn't true. That's a bit of a myth, while he's very good in the air a lot of the time he would make the contest and bat it down to Jennings.

    Did that pay off positively for you over the duration of 26 Rounds?

    Started on the wing.
    For me the most impressive player was Waqa Blake.
    I had him for part of last year and he mostly looked uninterested but really looked like a different player tonight.
    I won't be picking him though.

    Not 100% sure with Tupou but overall I was well clear last year.

    I pick a know scorer and get on him every week, Semi, Rona (the best), Tupou.

    This year I think Semi, Rona and TTurbo are going to be the money makers

    Teddy set up 5 tries according to a report.

    I will now spend the next half an hour shifting heaven and earth to get him in because that's the way I have been the last two weeks.

    Brett Stewart and Tommy Turbo injured in the Manly trial. They get assessed tomorrow. Hamstring for Stewart, ankle for a Turbo Jnr.

    Trial game maybe but if Daley doesn't select Ted this year I will seriously consider switching allegiances in protest until he is! Haha

    Welshy mentioned Lichaa and Hodgson. This has been my HOK pairing for a while pending no Baptiste named but Jayden as a cheapie 2nd hooker is tempting

    wouldn't waste a second hooker spot on a cheapie like J Niki or Parcell mate too much work to get the second gun hooker in! Who you running as captain mate without Smith? I'm seriously considering Merrin
