    So weird as Brooks and Lawrence had a decent combination once upon a time

    I think this could be one of the more likely things to happen this arvo.

    I keep thinking Milford gets dropped week in week out, but he's still there so I am more confident in Talau keeping his place.

    Talau getting dropped was mentioned in the DT early mail & they said R. Jennings is fit so he could replace Talau....but why would you drop a young guy who is the future & who has crossed the line with the limited chances he's had so his strike rate is pretty good & then put in Jennings who will play no better than Talau.

    Give us your downvotes for dumbest trade of the season, even though everyone here said don’t trade Koro to Randall after holding him for a week I still took the 500k and ran with it, if i was home and not at the bar i may well have reversed the trade as i watched Koro take the field and warm up on Saturday evening but i thought he would play 60 minutes and score 30/40 so I let it ride... SNAKE EYES! That sounds like a cool team name

    Madge doesn't seem to be a fan of Jennings, so Talau must be really on the nose if he gets dropped to give Jennings another run

    Also 5 tries in 6 games sin't a bad return for Talau (even if a couple of those have been late consolations)

    I could be wrong but vaguely remember talau making a few errors last week ? Even though he pretty much scores every week Madge is a ruthless bastard

    Melbourne Storm centre Marion Seve required plastic surgery on a cut to his ear after suffering a head knock in the 26-16 win over the Knights.

    Melbourne’s general manager of football Frank Ponissi said Seve would likely be out for “a few weeks” and that Justin Olam (ankle) was racing the clock to be fit for this Saturday’s clash with the Bulldogs.

    Just had a look at the news, Green coming to Newcastle has absolutely fucked my side, with Randall likely getting fuck all minutes. To make it worse, I reckon Baptiste will be a threat to Starling, otherwise why would they sign him?

    Why does any club sign anyone outside of their best 17 ?

    If starling gets injured they’re absolutely screwed, it’s a cover signing imo he won’t play unless required

    That's fair. Either way, I think I'm gonna just cop Randall on the chin and chuck him into my EMG, I've got fuck all trades as it is and I'd rather not use another one on him.

    Plan is Luai to Siro this week and then Mann to Matto/Fifi/Twal next week (so I can have a look at how Mann goes at hooker)

    Raiders Recruitment and High-Performance Director Peter Mulholland said Baptiste adds some valuable experience and depth to the squad with Josh Hodgson out for the remainder of the season.

    “Kurt is a talented hooker who has a proven record with the club and can provide our squad with experience and depth in a key position,” Mulholland said. “We’re really happy to have him back at the club for the remainder of the year and we’re looking forward to him joining the squad as soon as he can.”


    Sounds like he may actually find a spot somewhere.

    Baptiste is no threat to Starling whatsoever.

    Starling has been great. I really don't see him overtaking him.

    When was the last time Baptiste played a game of footy, not only that he wouldn’t be on the bench with both havilli/starling.. is it likely he’ll have to do two weeks isolation? He may not even be an option for 3 weeks, purely cover for a disaster come finals I’d say

    I see this being more of a possibility:

    9. Starling
    14. Baptiste
    15. Havili (Forwards)
    16. Tapine
    17. CHN

    Havili offers much more as a little nuggetty prop

    EDIT: When does Soliola return?
