    Yeah, the worst knockout HIAs seem to be players getting in the wrong position for a tackle and getting hit by a knee or hip.

    It was 10 weeks two weeks ago according to Trish Johns on the Matty Johns Podcast. Make of that what you will but Cooper Johns and Verrills are quite tight and hes been mentioned a fair bit on the podcast prior to his injury.

    As a titans supporter I wouldn’t be complaining

    Great insight. Yeah Cooper and Verills seem to be close so it's a reliable source!

    The last few pages has made me move from Matterson to Starling this week. Matto can wait (59BE and playing the mighty Warriors). While I am liking Starling more and more and this week is key (chance he may be #1 or play 60+minutes, BE of 2! and Hodgson ain't getting any younger).

    While you degenerates are off to Magic Round, I am off to the Ballet tonight. Enjoy your weekends and can't wait to see the photo of the crew together at Magic Round:

    Hampton to Starling and 282k ITB
    or Hampton to Fog and 117 ITB?

    I would go fog unless you need some cash gen

    They check for that at the Gabba the last few years. Ive seen dudes get them binned by security.

    They also have cameras at the top of the stands that they use to scan the crowd for having booze at their feet/etc. Saw some kids get booted 5 mins into a test match because they had a bottle of vodka at their feet. Asked one of the staff how they knew, got it confirmed they picked it up on camera.

    My method is undefeated (except for when the cops took us all out the back a few years ago as they worked out what we were upto. They couldnt prove anything tho and no one would admit to it so they had to let us all retuen to our seats.. except for one guy. They fined him 550 and kicked him out. Not friends with him anymore anyway)

    I mean, he's like 9 years old. If you leave him alone in Sydney he'll just eat too many lollies and stay up late waiting to see boobies on SBS. Much better keep an eye on him with the playing group.

    Man a Starling punt looks appealing. I went from almost a full bench of hookers to no hookers. This game isnt as fun without hookers...

    Wookiee's opinion ( so I don't have to TU and TD every single time)

    Starling = no
    Matterson = no
    TPJ = yes (if you have the coin)
    Gamble = wait a round (Staggs?)
    Fogarty = yes
    Koroisau = wait a round
    Herbie = yes
    SCrichton = yes
    Moses = yes
    JBrailey = yes, but you are way to late
    Carty = Party
    Parramatta = yes
    Storm = no
