This is pretty much last chance saloon, we have some decent match ups coming up but have to win this one to stay in the hunt.

Morgo likely to miss out again so let's hope Cliffo steps up

Must be pretty frustrating for Morgo if he's legit feeling fine and not just saying so. Really hope he can complete whatever tests he has to do and be cleared if that's the case. They're really erring on the side of caution recently after the articles about CTE and Steve Folkes.


We have to try and get Drinkwater involved in our attack a bit more too. He's been here a few weeks now so hopefully we can start to get some combinations around the ruck happening.

Hopefully Drinkwater can take a little pressure off Clifford. Shame one of TMM, Hampton or Dunn aren't available at 5/8 while Morgan recovering.

First of two in a row mate.
We've lost what... 4/5 lately? Some by only a point or 2. My emotions are in a downward spiral. First of 2 in a row? Games without an injury?

Few of us guessed it was gonna be 3-4 weeks. Who is CTE?

Clifford needs to involve Drinkwater. He is there, just not getting the ball passed to him.

Lets just hope that our impact bench players are just that, and not plodders....

Not only have we to contend with playing in Sydney and the NRL Refs and Bunker, we now have their Number 1 supporter beseeching his Pentecostal Hillsong God to do his thing and smite us.

In PNG he has stated he believes in miracles and is praying for one for the Sharks against the Cowboys. ---- God help us. ----

I prefer the day when Elle -- The Body --- was their Number 1 supporter.

Fook, I hate the Clappers. Up the Cowboys.

The game could come down to who doesn't soil the bed kicking for goal.

Followed by the NRL bending us over and once again turning our biggest home game of the year into a disgraceful 3rd Thursday night in a row............

Pricks will probably make our 1st home game at the new stadium a Thursday night blockbuster against the Warriors......

Interesting to see if Greeny shifts Opacic to the left side and promotes Tuala to replace He Who Shall Not Be Named.

The right edge of Wright + Opacic + Feldt hasn't let in a try in the last three games. It would be risky to break that combo up. Also, it's weird that we've had the same combination anywhere on the field for three weeks in a row.
