The last 2 games getting hurt & playing out the game is a testament to how big his heart is. He left the ground in a moon boot but I bet his mind is telling him that he'll be sweet for next week. Sure Robinson might contemplate resting him but I bet Walker will be in his ear trying his best to dissuade him from that decision.

    I was impressed with the way Walker handled Papali'i last night when many others haven't this year - it looked like the Eels were trying to target him, but he kept racing up to make initial contact and kept chopping him down.

    Agree. Thought that and was very surprised.

    My wife's been watching the Vampire diaries and it was bugging me where I've seen the main character before, and finally figured it out.

    Mentioned this a few weeks back that his defensive style makes it incredibly hard to isolate him. We saw exactly this play out last night

    Walker is defending in the traditional 3 in role. I think he is less susceptible to being targeted in defense because of his defensive attitude. He doesn't sit back and wait for larger guys to get at him, instead rushing off his line to get in their face in one on one situations. Still gets a few missed tackles because of his size but even Melbourne couldn't isolate him

    Same dilemma (as many, I guess). Leaning to Stefano personally. Liddle has me spooked.

    There has been a tonne of dogshots over the years that haven't resulted in fights/brawls.

    Greg Bird with a dirty play?? I refuse to believe it

    Watson back to bench with Fitzgibbon edge and Barnett lock

    CHT still in 19 man squad but no real clues otherwise on Walsh

    Does this mean Barnett is a no go? Unless Barnett shifts to Fitzgibbon's edge after 25 min?

    I think I’m going to have to second trade this week. I already have Hampton and Verrils as red dots and Walker could also be out and that’s too many for me.

    Thinking Hampton to Gamble, hoping he can hold his spot to round 13 and make some cash and then I’ll downgrade him to a r17 cow.

    Also, Go the Raiders! Time to come good.

    Don't know why Fitzgibbon would come off after 25 min on edge? I suppose it could be like Kikau coming off at 30 min and plays the second half. Watson on at 30 plays out the game. Barnett 30 at lock 10 edge and in the prop rotation in the 2nd half??

    Fitz surely doesn't play 80 min first game back. Super risky getting Barnett now. He really needs 80
