    Haha, yeah. He seemed to make improvements in the Argy team when he was there so perhaps he can work a bit of magic at the Warriors. Cappy's idea apparently and been in the works since last year.

    By the way, did the "no dickheads" policy come about under the Henry regime? I understand it was a policy driven by the playing group (and at the least resulted in Hika Elliot being vetoed), but it would be great for the Warriors if a similar policy could be brought in I reckon - would probably free up enough cap space to bring in some of the Para lads too Wink

    I have Smith and Peats. Titans have byes in 12 and 18, same as Storm. So that's worst case scenario for me.

    before Peats last game his BE was about 70 or something so a lot of people had time to wait. If he had a lower BE last week I bet a lot more managers would have been caught out

    Yeah, I may well have had Peats by now if it wasn't for his BEs. I reckon thats saved a lot of people!! Thoughts on De Gois if Peats goes? Looks to me like he would be a pretty good option. Not only does he have the best bye round schedule, but he should earn a bit of coin and therefore make it much easier for people like me to upgrade to a keeper post the bye weeks...

    So Fusitua to be named at fullback, Lolohea at 6, and Vatuvei, Thompson, and Matulino all back? Seems that way from what I've been hearing. One of the "shamed six" or whatever they are calling them may well start off the bench to try and make it look like management still haven't completely forgiven them and are still rewarding the solid play of the lads who bet SG.

    I thought the 'No dickheads Policy' was the Raiders, Should extend it to the NRL. Might sort a problem or two, will weaken the Roosters and Broncos, Double win.

    Surely they wouldn't get rid of Peats. That's the dumbest move. Wish it were Gordon though. Crying or Very sad

    i looked at last years scores for when he was named FB (in milchows spreadsheet). cant remember how many games (maybe 8 or so?) but it was quite underwhelming stuff.

    fusitua at FB (if long term) interests me though.

    You are probably right. I just know the All Blacks had/have that policy as well - just wasn't sure if it was initiated when Henry was there or not.

    From memory, De Gois scored quite well as starting Hooker (mid 40's??), however I believe that Kaysa Pritchard was out with a season ending injury.
    I don't know if there was another backup, but De Gois may have been playing 80. Beware if Pritchard is named on the bench.

    Mannering will play surely. Wacko said he trained with the full squad along with Tui. I don't think I'll risk the R on Tui this week though.

    Pretty sure Mannering is 2 more weeks away.

    Mutation off the bench, Thompson to start. Luke still on the bench.

    Gavet to start, Vatuvei still out of squad despite being cleared to play and Leuluai at 6. Fusitua on the wing.

    I wish they'd started Tui at 6 and Fusitua at FB...

    His scores were solid, but I don't think he was playing 80, could be wrong though.
