Hopefully we can lift again after TOUGH Storm match
Replacements fairly straight forward if Props ruled out with injury ?

Out - Finecine / Hamlin-Uele

McInnes to Lock
Hunt - Prop
Tolman - Prop
Pele - Prop
Wade to 2nd Row left - Briton Nikora back to 2nd Row right

Full Bench
Pele / Wilton / Fifita / Trindall

If Kennedy is out Metcalfe to Fullback ?

Metcalf is injured I think egg.

Big call but if Will is out I only see Hynes to fullback, Trindall at 7. Dykes to early to make a debut, so I don’t see any others.

Some time later today I’ll try to post my “worst case scenario” team.

Rudolf Starting Prop for sure McDravid , took that as a gimme , but all good.

Hard one Chad .
Do you disrupt a halves Combo that is firing and to play Nicho at fullback ?
I didn't realise Metcalf was injured

So youre starting Hunt Tolman & Rudolf at prop with a bench of Pele Wilton Fifita Trindall.

Dropping Williams even though he is better than Pele (and injured in Cup this weekend) and probably played better than Fifita.

You need to think these thoughts through a bit further sometimes egg

OK , flick Pele
And start and bench the other 4.
APPOLIGIES.
For some reason automatically added 2 props as I had counted Finucane as a lost Prop NOT a lost Lock .
Thus ONLY Hunt required

Why would we play our star halfback at fullback lol. Even Moylan would be above him on the pecking order as non-essential. If Kennedy is out we pick either Tracey, Metcalf or debut Lachie Miller.

Wouldn't be surprised if Wade is fit he starts on the bench. Wilton deserves his starting spot, he's class.

I don't think Williams is suiting the style of play we are going for. He just seems lazy unless it's his hitup. Like there will be an offload to Hynes and he will just let Hynes get smashed instead of pushing up as an option to pass to. He's gets another chance but jeez he's not impressive. He can go to Bulldogs or Tigers to play their one-out style next season.

I don’t mate, I was just throwing it out there. Lots of guys on here have said Nicho would be more free flowing at 1 or 6, so I didn’t think it was a real crazy option. Yes we lose his organising skill but I don’t see who else should be at 1 if Will is out.

No way Hynes gets shifted to fullback. Maybe if we were in the finals and needed a quick solution.

So Finucane and BHU are definitely out?

Well that would probably leave us with

8. Rudolf
9. Brailey
10. Tolman
11. Nikora
12. Wilton
13. McInnes (c)

14. Hunt
15. Graham/Trindall/Pele
16. Williams
17. Fifita

Not terrible but losing those two stings a lot.

Skipper would be McInnes or Hynes.

It’s not the silliest of ideas if done a certain way.

You could name 7. Trindall, 6. Moylan and 1. Hynes.

How they’d play in defence would be exactly that but when we have the ball it’d be 7. Hynes, 6. Trindall and 1. Moylan.

I just don't think Fitz would f*ck with Hynes head by shifting him around just as he's trying to get his head around a new role

This starting pack is a touch on the small side but I know where you are coming from …
