And durability
Fifita and Hunt can only play in short 15-20min bursts, and Tolman for his durability has no impact with ball in hand.
I would have Graham at 13 playing more a middle role with the odd switch up on the edges

Pure speculation. I think Trindall will be dropped for this game, but Fitz will do it at the last minute so as to lessen the blow. Trindall is signed for two more years I think, so I reckon Fitz is treating him as along term project and doesn't want to dent his confidence. I reckon Hazelton or Pele will come in on the bench.

I hope this is the case. I still do rate Trindall. I do think he is capable of being a consistent first grade level half. It is hard to come in and out of games like he has

On the flip side Im still quite anxious that Fitz does a flipper-roo and starts Trindal with Miller the utility! hope not! but some scars just take ages to heal!

Would be very surprised mate. Blind Freddy could see that Hynes has to be at 7.

One more year. Off contract end of 2023.

Concerning that two years ago I thought he looked around 2 years off and now I still think he looks about two years off.

Disruptions to Cup haven't helped. I have swung firmly to the opinion of play him as a half in cup rather than a utility in NRL though

Best to keep Trindall's contract in perspective. This isn't meant to be a slight on him, just to consider for your expectations.
Trindall played in 5 games in 2020, 18 in 2021 and 6 this year, with one full game. About half of those games he played as halfback, the rest 5/8 or a weird mix of half/hooker/lock.

SIgned a one year deal in 2020, then a two year deal in 2022 after failing to attract attention from other clubs.
Was just relegated (as named so far), which again isn't a slur on him, though you would doubt his performance made the coach sweat over the decision.

His nrl.com profile doesn't look like it's been updated since his debut. Doesn't mean anything, just a bit odd for a guy that's played in 29 first grade games.

He's 22, which you'd think gives him say three years in the top 30 to get peoples protusions tingling before merry mother England looks like a good option in the hopes of pulling a Hastings.

Im so not feeling this game.
Still really flat after last weeks farce

We started the season on such a massive high, we looked incredible and like we could take on the world but I think we are all feeling deflated right now.

It's hard to get pumped about a potential win against the Titans but it's still 2 points and frankly we are no longer ready to face top 4 sides for the time being and we still need to get better at beating teams below us on the ladder.

We need to find some confidence for next round against the Roosters and build ourselves back up to challenge the better teams and hopefully as fans and players start to feel alot less flat.

I think as fans we just need to see the boys play with some energy and spirit again to give us a lift and something to be proud about cause the games against like the Broncos and Raiders for instance gave me some bad morris/hannay vibes , flashbacks of when we couldn't defend and looked unfit and unsure in attack, no aggression or attitude ect and I know we are alot better and more capable in 2022 than that garbage

just gotta rediscover that Mojo, I am confident we will plus we get some key players back in coming weeks who will lift us and take some pressure off


Moyza probably played worse that Trindall last week.

he did in the later stages of the game but prior to that was decent/solid
