    I’m not playing Murray or RFM,  but I am playing Kikau, JFH and Martin. No idea why, just a gut feeling.

    Fair call mate. There is no right answer I guess. I feel that playing RFM, Martin, JFH is a safe shot minutes wise. Would think they all play over 60. No facts to back that up

    Would you play RFM over Mitchell?

    Yeah i am tossing up playing Kikau or RFM. Like you said, RFM probably the safe option. Kikau either goes large with the challenge today or get nothing.

    At the end of the day anything can happen. For example I've been saying Kikau will be contained by the Dragons edge defense but whats to say he comes on, gets a nice short ball from Maloney, busts the line & scores a try with 3 Dragons players hanging on to him.

    I assume that's Latrell Mitchell. Well for a start he should be your starting ctr & I'd play RFM too.

    I got jiggy with my team and moved isaako into starting, benching Mitchell. Now I'm thinking Inglis might be better taking a seat this week.

    Mitchell up against the Titans screams points to me & it's his last audition for origin. He has a lot to play for so should be very motivated. I would bench GI & play Latrell.

    I will miss him. No

    Interestingly Vichy Catalan  mineral water contains 51 milligrams of potassium per litre.

    Could help his game.

    Matterson out


    Edit : "Ryan Matterson has been ruled out of the line up this week, which has seen a shake up with the forward pack heading into kick off.

    Isaac Liu moves into the second row from lock, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves shuffles to lock from the bench and Nat Butcher will come onto the bench from the reserves.

    Sitili Tupouniua comes out of the side while the rest of the line up is unchanged. "

    Some guy on a Roosters forum said it's a sunny day with a dry track so should see some open rugby league. I'll have Arrow, Mitchell & Teddy so 2 tries each for Teddy & Mitchell would be grouse.

    Think he scored 6 tries in 6 years with Eels. He needed as many people as he could in those celebrations.

    Any WFB (prefer dpp but doesn’t matter really) I can bring in so I can move Brimson to half to cover Matterson? Is Fonua the only option? I don’t have Teddy. Probably would be trading out JFH FYI. Or Sorensen.

    Haha what a funny week this is
    Bring in Fonua to play over JMK this week, and he ends up playing for me anyways due to a Koro punch (Who would be normal cover)
    Seems there is no escaping him, hope he runs it a bit more or plays the 80

    Will have to see how it all plays out now

    Was there anything going around about MCK and his job security? Only piece of info I had seen was that Rochow was being rested which seemed to suggest MCK is just a fill in for now. Is that right? or is there a chance he gets a run at starting C for a few weeks?
