Sucks about Taumalolo. Hopefully round 9.

Praying we see some sort of change to our spine, though it is probably wishful thinking with Green. Big game for Cronulla, the peptide king becomes the overall most capped cronulla player of all time so the club will make a song and dance about it and get the players right up for this clash.

Moylan looked to have some sort of leg injury on Saturday though continued to play with it, so hopefully he’s out, he’s been a revelation at the back for them. Fifita has been a beast as well. Usually plays the majority of the first half and then 25 of the second. Looks like there’s storms forecasted for saturday, so hopefully they hit before kick off, and we’re left with that real uncomfortable humidity we get after a downpour that’ll sap that fat ugly scumbag and minimise his influence on the game.

Fancy our chances against cronulla who have been ordinary at best. We MUST see a response from our forward pack after we were bashed and bullied on the weekend.

Want to see a reaction from the forwards after getting stomped on Friday. Lolo out but we still have a quality pack and we need them to perform if we're any hope of picking up a win.

We have 3 games in a row at home this is a good chance to build a solid foundation to carry forward to the rest of the season.

That's right. Gives the others a chance to stand up and show what they got. All of a sudden, I'm pumped again.

Lolos injury is the perfect (not really good choice of word) opportunity to get Asiata into the starting side. Won't happen tho, Moose to 13, Coops and Hess to start likely.

Sounds like Hess will start but yeah I’d prefer Asiata fit his ball playing abilities to be in the side all the time and just rotate the bash and barge forwards

Wow praise the lord. We wanted these changes and thought it was merely wishful thinking we’d get them. Pleasantly suprised Green has pulled the trigger. Bring on Saturday against the Peptide injecting salary cap rorting cheaters!!

Hopefully this spine is given time to grow together now, I don't expect to see the best out of them for a while but I expect to see a lot of promise.

I hope Tuala can force his way in at some stage too.

How can we take anything Green says seriously? Three days ago Clifford was not the best option the club had.

Maybe he should stop with bullshit mind games and just speak plainly.
