    Doesn't have much interest in Gelling and Ayshford as cover by the sounds of it.

    Will Lawton start over Luke? Still want to see Sammy Cook get a run.

    They are just trying to find ways to not look so stupid after all their hardline comments prior to the test.

    They will all play IMO despite turning up over a day later than expected. Lawton might start over Luke, but I think that will just be to save face a bit. If that's the case I think Luke still plays a pretty big role in the game, but that might depend on who's in front.

    360 is easily my favourite show since Sterlo got the boot.

    Ayshford, I can't believe he still has a contract. Didn't Honeysett use to put a lobster on whoever was opposite him as first try scorer ? He made a motza till they came up against the Tigers and he was opposite Simona.

    I agree mate. Globilisation i.e. open borders has destroyed the world because terrorists have easy access & cheap labour takes jobs away from natural citizens & the cheap labour itself gets exploited.

    This part interests me (as an economist by trade). A number of studies have shown that the jobs that the so-called cheap labour "steal" actually don't get filled by natural citizens when policy is put in place that prevents migrant workers filling these positions. I.e. westerners are often too bloody lazy to work the tough (low paid) jobs and often would rather budge of the benefit. This has actually happened to the extent that local industries and economies have collapsed because they couldn't find people to fill these vacant positions. Makes you think huh Wink

    You'd think huh!!

    Makes life a whole lot easier for me if he does. At worst he plays 17 and makes a bit more money, but to be honest he is probably a keeper, so gives me way more options for the rest of the season.

    Fifita to bench.

    How can he start over an incumbent NSW prop and incumbent Australian prop.

    more seriously, I think Prior loses out more than Fifita does. Fifita's massive minutes stopped when Gallen came back, so I suspect he'll stay around his current level.

    Looked to me like the last 2 games have indicated the Sharks want to protect Fifita with lower minutes when they can. You'd think Woods will only help enable that.

    You would think even Gallens minutes might take a hit possibly.

    martin would have been named regardless because of the RFM injury but once RFM returns, i'd say this paves the way for jacko to spend more time in the middle (keeping martin in the team long term)

    So did you hear if it was to do with the Top 30 players for Martin not playing, or did Pay indeed drop him?

    Communism DOES work- in theory Laugh 3

    The problem with politics is that everybody follows the left or right like it is a football team. Their minds are made up and they justify events to themselves as they go along. Trump could eat a baby during a press conference tomorrow and his supporters would applaud his cavalier baby-eating moxy, laud how no other politician had the spine to eat babies. Conversely he could single handedly negotiate world peace and the Left would focus on what his toupee was doing during the photo session. It is the same in Australia- if you are "a staunch labor man" it is because your daddy was, because his daddy was and so on, but it is all just internalization of inherited values.

    We are all just monkeys flinging our shit at each other on an intellectual level. I for one can't wait for the Aliens to attack so we finally realise how much we all have in common.

    I agree with your post mate.

    The funny thing about your post is the two extremes you chose for trump:

    Negotiating world peace & eating a baby on live TV!!

    The fact that these two are equally as likely says a lot!!
