According to Hooper, the Roosters are going to name Latrell Mitchell in the Centres.. I wonder who's going to miss the 17 out of Copley & Burgess.
Risky playing him in the centres, think he'll be found wanting in defence. Surely on the right wing outside SKD would be the logical choice.

If he slots into centres, you'd think he's on the left with SKD retaining the right. In such a scenario, I'd assume Copley would miss out. They could move SKD to the wing though where he's probably just as effective.

From what I can gather, Burgess is down the pecking order a bit, given Mitchell and Copley won selection in WCC. One wonders if he's behind Elliott as well?

Robinson has said Burgess needs to do put a few kegs on before he plays first grade and he has a few aspects of his game to work on. Mitchell into the centres and SKD on the wing. Copley will play left centre.

At least Brown isn't going to die wondering.

Let's be frank, the Knights squad is rubbish. They're the reigning wooden spooners and have added little to their roster since then. So by making a few tactical selections (eg. Feeney at fullback) and choosing the form forward pack of what's available I believe he's making the most of his opportunity. Combined with who he's facing and I believe he's made the best move for the most part. Perhaps I would have been inclined to shift a few players around and inject Danny Levi but I'm willing to give this 17 a chance.

I feel a bit sorry for the knights here. Some teams have better forwards running around in their reserve grade that would be better than their starters. They wasted all their money on Hodkinson who will be nothing without his forwards laying a platform.

this is going to be one of the few winnable games this year for the knights

What is it that everyone sees in Konrad Hurrell? All I see is a fat oompa loompa with a bad work ethic and very rocks and diamonds type of player. Talent only gets you so far in the nrl

It tells me a bunch of things, none of which leads me to believe that Ayshford has anything to offer at this level.

That's the problem here, not Hurrell's omission.
