    Big Joe simply has to start the game this week . Hopefully this will happen and he gets around 60 minutes.

    I'm at a loss to see where an 80 minute replacement player is to be found for Gifty , but it is definetley not Bailey.

    Maybe T-Rex into the pack and Oldfield onto wing , though T-Rex would only be good for around 40 mins in the engine room .

    The way I see it Bailey is the best option at lock for us. He's much better there than at second row by any stretch. Should play to his natural game a lot better.

    Guessing that Buhrer will start in the second row. Shame that Lussick has been out for so long, I'm guessing that he would've got a start this week if he had been match fit.

    Assuming that Seu Seu or Mauro will come onto the bench. Fingers crossed that it's Mauro. I don't want to see the Seu Seu curse continue.

    T-Rex definitely won't go to the forwards. Des has stated this in his Press talks timt and time again. He says, "Why would you move a guy that's scored 14 tries in 12 games?"

    Matai to replace Gift in the back row.. Whare to come into the centres..

    Matai isn't a backrower, and Whare is still out injured isnt he ?

    didnt know Whare was still injured, i thought i heard he would be back before the finals. TBH, not alot of difference between centre and backrow for a guy like Matai who plays the game like he does. Obviously more defence, but im sure he would handle it and could even get spelled at some stage during the game if need be.

    Maybe Perry will be fit? Otherwise Buhrer could play lock, Mauro onto the bench. Our team probably won't take shape till quite late in the week.

    Possibly Seu Seu to lock.
    Hopefully T-Rex will help out the forwards like he did in the first half of the Easts match.

    Good time of the year to finally blood new players in either top grade,or new positions.

    Whare has been named in the NYC, personally I think he should come into the NRL team. 99% sure the team Des has named won't take the field.
