So they will be without Inglis, Gagai, Cooke and Crichton. Only Val for us.

I also wouldn't be surprised if we're without Lewy.

Would have been a really good test coming up against them at full strength, they've been playing great footy.

A lot of their success obviously has been the form of the burgess boys,so it'll still be incredibly tough. It'll be tight.

With Cook capitalising off the back of it.

Let's be serious, they have a ****load of strike out. We should win this reasonably well. I'm not talking a flogging, but by 12.

Yeah Cook is a huge factor. We should be very disappointed if we can't beat them with all of that cattle out.

so u gotta think that whoever replaces cook will do a similar job off the back of the burgess boys

No Cook is the big win for us. Yes the forwards have been playing well but it's not like we've got a ***** pack. It's those metres Cook is getting out of dummy half.

Also no Inglis and Gagai will mean two new centres. I can see Graham and Moylan having a field day on those edges.

I really hope this means Katoa gets a run, but most likely it'll be the Fekster on one wing and Eddie on the other.

Bunnies are missing a LOT of strikepower. If we can avoid getting into an armwrestle we should be ok. 7 in a row would be brilliant.

I'm glad they have some players out in the sense they have been in some strong form and gives us a better chance of winning but what a mouth watering contest it would have been with Souths at full strength. Real 50/50 game.

Would have been good to test ourselves against a top 4 team after some games against relative minnows.

I still think we could have exploited their edges with boogs, lewy, ramien with Souths at full strength. Bit of pressure goes back on us now

Flanno timed his injuries and form run brilliantly this year making sure there was little time or chance for many Sharks getting picked for Origin :rolleyes:

I'd imagine that Reynolds will test our wingers with a few cross kicks if he gets the chance.

They will have to drag him and his tinnies down off the ANZ scoreboard - hope he's wearing a harness!

Really lucky we’re catching these guys without a lot their stars. They’ve been one of the hottest teams in the league. Still not a guaranteed win of course but should be a high quality game regardless. Really looking forward to this.

From what I understand Katoa is not killing it in NSW Cup.

Can anyone confirm this? Snowy? Burgess?

What worries me about this game is the return of Robbie Farah.

He can scheme and pass and cause us all sorts of trouble.

I was hoping for a solid Sharks win but with the likes of Farah now included, I am sorry to say it will be Rabbits by 13+ !
