Some interesting points:
- Nikorima to fullback for The and Te Whare on to the bench
- Joffa has been named...by the Eels!
- Granville is playing lock
- No Oates
- Mariner on to the wing
- Sailor to fullback
- Te Kura on the extended bench, I can see him getting into the final 17
- Capewell named, so looks like he was dropped!
- Graham unavailable for NSW but named to play this week BEFORE origin
- Taaffe to fullback
- Ponga back to fullback
- Weekes to fullback for the Sea Eagles and not Garrick

bit of a joke graham can still be available for souths after pulling out of the blues because of injury

Agreed. If he is available for selection this week, he still be 18th man until after the game. Effectively, Penrith is now disadvantaged instead of Souths.

Panthers aren't playing this weekend so Crichton will still be available vs the bye.

Interesting that it took Billy to drop Ponga from the QLD fullback position, for Obrien to switch Ponga back to fullback.

I get the feeling that this move by OBrien is not because he thinks it is in the Knights best interest ... but rather designed to try and get Ponga back in the QLD team.

and that's poor coaching

It was poor coaching in the first place to move him to 6 and then go buy a fullback.

Poor coaching from a very poor coach is not surprising.

Jakob Arthur has been named in Manly's extended squad after he left his father's team to be coached by Anthony Siebold

They should not be able to call this a penalty against dragons, because the ref has called play on.. it should just be play the ball

Kodi has smoked him straight across the face... luck he's a mosquito and flippers are behind, because that's getting beyond a little high shot.

I was curious to see how they'd rule on it, I'm glad common sense prevailed.

Phins were hard done by on the JMK late hit.
