    Dylan Walker expected to return this round.

    Kieran Foran will undergo reconstruction surgery for the ligaments of his injured toe and be out for the rest of the season. Will be in a moon boot for 6 weeks, & often full recovery will be 3 months +
    Wish him the best with surgery and rehab

    In raiders news.

    Hingano out for season. Shame.

    Bateman out for 3-4 weeks. Might mean more minutes for Knight for those looking for a cash out that plays rd 17.

    Might effect Tapine positively.

    Another syndesmosis injury ending a season today, with Akuila Uate ruled out after suffering the injury representing Fiji this past weekend. With that recovery timeframe he will also likely require surgery

    Am I right in thinking Sharks have a pretty depleted pack at the moment? Meaning more of a reliance on Fifita?

    If so, might do the old trade burner to James using Taupau instead.

    From todays injury news, they've lost 3 forwards.

    Tapine and Scott might be worth a crack.

    How'd Fifita play for not Samoa? You'd think if he cant be a gun for them, stepping up for Sharks will be a stretch.

    *he may have killed it, I missed game

    Edit: yeah whooops

    Got Fonua, Graham and RFM. Which one do I hold out of Graham & RFM? Or plan to trade out both?

    He plays for Tonga. I remember him making 5 tbs and an offload in one run and adding up the points in my head. Didnt watch the second half of the game, but was impressed with the first.

    Not surprised at all. I've been calling BS on the Warriors rhetoric on this for weeks. They will all play IMO.

    I get up and go to work the day after I get back from the US and Im an overweight lazy shit, travelling economy, with 2 kids who at best sleep 30% of the flight.

    All that shite from the Warriors was a terrible attempt at manipulating things which ended up making them look like numpties!

    Rhetoric... underrated word Cheers

    Seen the news this morning, coupled with the Fonua news I'm very short now, need Kikau back this week to soften the blow as also have RFM  Sad

    will probably have to go RFM - JTurbo and keep Graham as 18th man

    @WT2K

    actually mate I'll be fine if Martin returns

    Graham and RFM will sub out for Kikau and Martin and I'll just go as previously planned

    Fonua - Aitken

    Lafai is 52k cheaper than Aitken & his last 3 game average is just 2 points lower than Aitken's. Also the Dragons seem to attack more down the left edge so that favours Lafai.

    Sorensen was named as captain for NSW in the ISP Origin yesterday but didn't end up playing. I have heard nothing about why he withdrew, but to withdraw when you are captain I can only assume he is injured.
    If that's the case, Sharks are stuffed with four top 2nd rowers out.

    Lafai's season average is 5 points below Aitken mate, for $52k more I'd be much happier with Aitken
