    Fui & Sione. 50/50 between Sione & Cotric but Sione could get some attacking returns v Wests.

    I think he's there just in case Chambers pulls out. I don't think they would name YT to start then drop him for Scott. Tbh I was surprised that they named YT to start over Scott who I think has played better than YT.

    Pretty sure they tried Scott on the other side in pre-season and he was shocking in D. Some guys just cant play both sides pf the field

    This is the two I'm torn over. Leaning towards Cotric. But we know what RTS is capable of.

    Seems like picking the right two centres from here on out is a POD in itself.

    TTurbo, Scott, Fuimaono, Moga, Roberts, Hayne, SiMat, Croker, Leilua and even Marsters soon.
    So many capable of busting out 50s/60s

    Current top 17 possible based on total points scored up to date this season (not my team)

    McCulloch (McInnes)
    Vaughan, Tolman
    Gallen, Taumalolo, JDB (Crichton, JTurbo, Surgess)
    Johnson, Pearce
    Lafai, Roberts
    Rapana, Gutherson, Nofo

    Until last night, Fifita was in there over Tolman and Gutherson less last night's score would still make the 17.

    Smith, Mannering and Kaufusi unlucky to miss out.

    I would play RTS over Cotric. Everyone is writing the Warriors off against Manly at Perth but I have a feeling that the Warriors will win. RTS v Cotric is a tough call but just the fact that RTS is a f/b who can roam all over the field gives him more of a chance of some returns whereas Cotric only has 1 channel of attack. I know Cotric has the ability to skirt from dummy half & get tb's but against the Cowboys he may limited in that respect.

    Yeah, it's always handy.

    @Deuces flip a coin mate, both relying on tries to save poor scores lately. Probs Cotric to be honest. I am starting to stress about the Warriors and my Manners C choice in Perth.

    Gee RTS ownership basically 50%. I think tactically it's an error if people are considering placing him in their npr's. If he bombs it won't have much impact on rank due to high ownership but if you bench him & he goes big it could be risky.

    To clarify, that's not my team. That is the best 17 available based on their total points scored.
    I WISH that was my team.

    He's due a 25 in my opinion. If that comes off and the person you play instead scores 55 then you're 30 points better off then the masses.

    All about luck isn't it?

    RTS last four scores are:

    43
    43
    61
    47

    All of those games inlude him scoring a try. That that eight points out and you have:

    35
    35
    53
    39

    Suddenly doesn't look so great.

    Are people backing him to keep that try-scoring streak going against one of the best defensive sides in the comp at a ground where the Warriors have never won, on a potentially wet track?
