Definitely a massive challenge this week. Wayne has made those guys so hard to beat. They won’t give us an inch.
Fitz offer the team 10 days off no training IF they win to recharge

Our record against Wayne Bennett teams isn't flash, feels that way in the last 15 years or so. Seems to just have us figured or we choke / don't turn up.

Last year against the Dolphins was disgusting.

Will be different this time around and look at Dolphins draw, they haven't beaten any top teams and chalked up their wins against mainly the dregs.

Guess if you lose enough games along the way it isn't a #softdraw ???

I don't even want to know how you know , if you know .

Well, it probably tastes more like red meat (with them being mammals and all that)...👨‍🍳

Ate Porpoise once, which is close enough. :eek: It was and still is illegal I think, but it was actually pretty good. Don't throw the book at me, it was a long time ago, I was in my pre-teens.

Or the Ricky Stuart approach… tell them they’re playing for Newtown next Saturday if they lose.

I imagine we will not get a big crowd for this one, but hopefully a more passionate and vocal crowd than were there for the Panthers.

Start Hunt and Euele if he's fit. Pull em down into a first half grind, stop their bloody good Pommy Centre, and Half. Open em up in the 2nd half.

I’d be resting Uele another week going into the bye. Getting over this one week in one week out so give him another two weeks rest and let him loose.

We have JC as depth too who probably just needs another game to get his fitness.

Also seems clear Fitz likes his bench forwards to come on and cause chaos and Hunt does that well so leave him there and let others absorb the opening stints

Can’t lose this. Plain and simple. Team I would field this weekend

1. Kennedy
2. Katoa
3. Ramien
4. Iro
5. Ronnie
6. Trindall
7. Hynes
8. Hunt
9. Brailey
10. Toby
11. Nikora
12. Talakai
13. Mciness

14. Williams
15. Kaufusi
16. Tuks/Colquhoun
17. Atkinson (need that zip around the ruck and cover in the backs)

(Would give Hazleton a breather, starting to look tired, give Wilton the extra week along with Uele). Still plenty to go this season need our forwards to be as fresh as possible for after the bye.

I'd keep Kaufusi on to start, let Hunt play same role again to bring the heat off the bench.
Sharks often have a lot of ball in play in opening 20 and it would potentially wear him out too quick trying to bring same impact against fresh bodies with few breathers.

Has Colquhoun been playing well enough in Cup to warrant shoehorning back into the side? I haven't watched the games.
