Greenie will pick the same Team........all we got is fumbles and missed tackles. Even the teams before 2004 did"nt play this bad.....least they had a go and had mongrel in them. They were in 2 Grand Finals because they had a living Legend playing with them. Thurston is gone but its like they are waiting for Thurston to save the day, like he always did.
Except in 2017 finals where there was no Thurston at all.

JT is a loss but they made one of those grand finals without him.

We were also just as bad last year with him in the team.

I hope to see a change at 9 this week (how are Baptiste and Cotter going in Q Cup?)

If you think about it - management haven’t been helped by things outside their control. If it wasn’t for unrelenting injuries, Josh Chudleigh would likely have replaced a declining Granville at 9 by now. And Carlin Anderson would be an option at 1. As much as you can criticise their decisions, they have been hampered by things outside their control also.

Nice, good to see Enari finally.

Hampton on the wing will be entertaining, one way or another. Bowen did himself no favours last week.

Good to see Baptiste in the squad too.

ET is a good change

But still no changes up front, not even starting vs bench changes *longest of sighs*

Team could change a lot on match day. Can’t see Hampton starting on the wing.

Can't be worse than how Bowen played last week.

I can see him as a placeholder there for a couple of weeks until either Feldt is back or Taulagi gets some fitness and form. It's probably safer than having him at centre.

Score after the opening 20 minutes of each match this season:

Round 1 - 0-6
Round 2 - 0-10
Round 3 - 0-6
Round 4 - 0-12

Looking forward to watching us get pantsed in the opening 20 like we have in every single match this year, and relying on our bench to get us going forward and back into the match.

Does anyone else think this is like déjà vu all over again? We scraped a win against the storm at home in round 4 in 2015 after 3 bad losses and the rest is history.

Lock in that 2019 premiership Eddie.

As much as I love Matt Scott and he is a club and QLD legend they should start using him like Mannah at the eels and not from the beginning

I thought this was goin to be his position at the start of the season. It would add more punch and have more of a balanced bench. When is Bolts back from suspension?

Well Enari is finally there, talked up big by folks on here hopefully he adds some strike power.

Hampton to wing is good decision, easier to defend on wing.

Forwards still not addressed though.

I'm not expecting huge plays from Enari straight away.

He just has way more upside than the other players we could choose there and he's only 20. It makes sense to give him a go and let him develop while we're rebuilding the squad and not a realistic chance of winning the comp this year.

There’s no way he is even close to being 195cm. Probably 185. He’s quite stocky.

No pack changes kinda show how much power some players have at our club. Our benchies have been spanking the starters for the most part this year and none have been rewarded for it yet :(

Hampton on the wing will be targeted heavily by the storm. He's in for a rough game whether he plays well or not.

I find Greens selections very odd. Says he wants to build combinations, then changes the team every couple of weeks. For good or bad, we need to stick with players for a few weeks.
