I'm happy enough with the team. Don't think Lucas did enough to keep his spot.

Surprised to see Hockings still in the row.

34 degrees forecast for Sunday. Few of those players selected on the bench this week would be pretty happy not to be running out at 3pm I reckon.

yeah but he was very good last week and produced those two key players. Lukhan was the one I thought was under pressure but I hope Thorn is telling him to go nuts early and then we've got Rodda on the bench to replace him.

The battle of the lineout is going to be sensational. Arnold and Carter have taken more catches than anyone in the comp apparently. But they don't seem to contest the opposition throw (or at least aren't very good at it).

I thought Lucas was pretty good, showed a lot of potential.

Anyways always good to see a GPS man selected.

This'll be a bloody tough game.

So Fraser McReight has finally got onto the bench.
Good luck to him. Will one right replace another, or will it be tooright;)

I don't see it that way. He was fine last week. Not exceptional. He's still in the squad and will play a key role later.

We don't need to rush his development (which we probably already are).

I agree here Reg, nurse him along a bit from the bench. The Reds (and RA) have a history of throwing young 10's into the fray, a little bit of desperation. I actually thought he did OK, we got a win, but he will no doubt improve

Interesting.

Timu got no game time last week. Not picked today.

Not a good sign in a Thorn coached team.

I actually thought Hockings did pretty well Sully, very good in the air and while he needs a bit on his frame, he goes hard
