    I’ve been a little bit busy lately and not completely up-to-date with all the latest rumours

    But there appears to definitely be a chance that Grant will come to the tigers. If that is the case, he will definitely start at hooker. I think Walters will be in the halves whilst Brooks is injured. Once Brooks gets back and Grant has played a few games starting at hooker, I think Walters will drop back to reserve grade (unless somebody else gets injured or suspended)

    Thanks, do you think it would be a good idea to play Walters in Half then and drop Wakeham out of 17 for one of Luai, Kennedy, Wiliame?

    Thanks Ben, am of the thought he could fill in for Brooks with Reynolds on the bench.

    This story is the latest today, so it looks like it's happening.

    eh. Really hate the idea of owning Warriors in the current climate, feels like i could get the rug pulled out from under me at any moment, but i'm behind the 8-ball from the start and i suppose a near base-price starting edge forward can't be ignored so i'll do Su'A to Katoa, Wiliame to Watkins and see if that helps this disasterpiece of a team any.

    Stimson, then Hess then Williams. Could argue that Hess goes first.

    Not a fan of dropping Hess, unless he has a failure tonight when he is up against Stimson.

    Would go Stimson, Williams, Hess

    What do you think to what I posted above mate?

    Think Walters in the halves with Reynolds on the bench for the first few weeks until grant gets up to speed and Brooks returns.

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2020/03/19/form-not-the-reason-lomax-moves-to-wing/

    Mary has come out and said that moving Lomax to wing was a 'forced change', and had nothing to do with form. He said Dufty was the next best player and they had no wingers as Saab is coming back from 2 serious injuries.

    Think that sounds like Lomax goes back to fullback when Ravalava comes back.

    I’ve gone back to Musgrove > Katoa.

    Stimson and Levi were chosen for a reason and I can’t turf them after a single game so they get another chance to impress.

    Mary confirming my statement from earlier. Lomax back to fullback next week unless Dufty has a blinder.

    Might have Hess at 18 and if he flops trade Musgrove to Walters but if he kills it, trade Musgrove to Grant. Twisted Evil
