O'Brien has changed his halves again.

Hastings is back and Gamble dropped

That's the way I expected it to go first time tbh. That guy's all backwards.
 
Pahulu has been sensational in Cup. Great choice Des.

Figured it was coming, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up going back to the Cogger/Gamble Combo though, I thought it looked better than how it was for the other games even though they lost.

that's a lot of changes to a winning team. it appears only one of them is forced.

additionally, they really should be leaving RTS at fullback, he is by far their best option there

Yeah, I feel CNK kinda loses his rights to Fullback when he got injured for the first 4 rounds.

Plus that Step RTS did in the game holy ****, I'm sure he didn't come back to League just to **** spiders on the right edge.
 
Kurt injured or just out?
 
Metcalfe is long long term with a broken leg. TMM gets first shot at being his replacement.

Weird how it's the exact same way Metcalfe got the position off TMM last year at around the same time of the year.
 
Im not sure they are going to lose a whole lot with TMM. Martin can ball play better just not as a dynamic runner of the ball.

Yeah the Warriors have so much depth everywhere this year, they have to be one of the comp favourites.

Yeah there is something about them. They just need to be a bit more ruthlessness in the back end of games. Very structured team and sometimes that breeds conservative play. They have the guys to open it up a bit more I reckon with their attack. Could have smacked Newcastle by alot more. Their winning scorelines look closer than if you actually watch their games start to finish. I reckon their best performance of the year was the game they lost to Melbourne. Went up a gear in that one and should have won

Running FB vs Ball player FB .
Ball player was always their plan RTS and CNK in the same team is a stronger team . According to the Wahs brains trust .
 
RTS is being a good soldier. Right from the start he said he will play center because of how much CNK killed it last year. I reckon they give it a month with CNK there and see how he comes back off the injury, maybe move them around during games. CNK strengths is his motor and work rate bit like a discount Dylan Edwards. If that is not where it needs to be because of the injury maybe they need to move the more dynamic guy in RTS back. They have a tonne of options. I can't believe how good he has looked this early.
