    Think Kikau was set for 55 minutes if he didn't get injured. Was on for good score even without try.

    Yeah he would have played the game out.

    @SI @bootleg, both Locky and Hodges (along with Walters and others) are horrible commentators, I agree. But anyone who argues their value and quality as players is dreaming!

    I noticed Havilli was very strong in defence but was finding it difficult to get to dummy half
    towards the end of his stint. I can see why Ricky pulled him. He needs match fitness so hopefully
    he gets another stint in the second half for him as well as my score.

    There was a brief shot where Kikau had his little finger pointing almost sideways. Don’t know if it was just a dislocation or if it is a compound. I guess we will find out soon enough.

    Well I think Kikau is a poor mans NAS so off 40 minutes should score at close to a 1 PPM (35-40 points)
    You would think he should get that given his recent performance as long as he isn't injured.

    Havili I think without the try would probably score around 30, good enough to make cash but a lot harder to predict minutes.
    So Havili is a good set and forget for 18-21

    I saw Kikau grab his finger and given the scoreline and the fact they had CHN on bench perhaps it was precautionary and good timing to sub him

    NAS surprised me Booze, I didn't even consider him, but I personally think Kikau could be the better Fantasy option long term.

    @SI didn’t seem to be any blood. Originally ran the next set but then came off. Maybe it didn’t click back in immediately hence coming off to sort it out.

    I haven't really watched him closely, has he stayed at Lock? Bloke need to be wider in my opinion, he is not "that" type of ball playing backrower they were looking for. Waste of his talent stuck in the middle.

    Hopefully just a dislocation then mate. Anyone with a memory that extends beyond breakfast this morning-wasn't there a Fantasy gun a few years ago that had a compound fracture of a finger and played the next week?

    Peter Wallace springs to mind actuall (so ignore the "gun" bit in my original question).

    Whiteheads defensive workload in the middle is good.

    I have no doubt of NAS's ability, its purely his unpredictable minutes and given the Storm bench and Bellamy it is hard to know how much he plays

    Appears the socks are a junior club thing also. Ash Taylor's are Newtown in TBar and Ryan James is wearing Bilambil ones. Not sure the reason or significance
