Cronulla Sharks vs North Queensland Cowboys, 5.30pm at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium


Sharks

Team Tips: Shaun Johnson is expected to return this week, while Chad Townsend is also a chance. Either way Braydon Trindall will drop out of the squad. If both halves return, Matt Moylan will shift to fullback and bump Will Kennedy out. Andrew Fifita will be fit after a nasty finger injury.Last week’s

Cowboys

Team Tips: Cowboys coach Josh Hannay said after last week’s match he had to make some decisions on the spine and he looks to have done exactly that with The Daily Telegraph reporting Daejarn Asi will come in to replace Ben Hampton, who has been in good form, at five-eighth. In a big boost for the squad, Valentine Holmes will return but it will be in place of young gun Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow who will be rested. the obvious big out for the Cowboys is Jason Taumalolo who was assisted from the field with a calf tear. He will miss up to four weeks. Josh McGuire escaped suspension for a high tackle andwill likely shift to lock, while Francis Molo will be promoted from the bench. Hooker Reece Robson has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with hamstring injury

I'd assume Tracey is being given a shot and then there was only one spot on the extended bench for a half, so Moylan was preferred for it over Trindall

With Nikora it was his spot to lose and he lost it, was given some stuff he had to work on, obviously showed Bomber in training he deserved another crack - suppose we will find out on game day if he really does deserve that spot back

Surprising selections.
Between the initial drop of Nikora and now dropping Moylan seems fair to say Bomber isn't afraid to make changes if you don't live up to expectation.

I would have been tempted to keep Trindall myself but I'm keen to see what Tracey can do with a full game in the halves.

No doubt we'll see some changes before kick off.

Good chance

Nikora on the bench means Talakai back to the middle and impact off the bench which I like.

And I don't think Tracey should get dropped over Trindall. Tracey's best position is 6 so interested to see how he goes, think he'll kill it

Didn't watch much of the Panthers game but didnt expect Moylan to be dropped.

If Fifita comes on one of Williams or Sorensen gets dropped, probably prefer to keep Williams. Not as consistent as Sorensen but offers more if he plays well and hasn't been too bad.

Good to see Morris isn't afraid to drop the big names if they are playing badly.

Head scratcher on Talakai though...

Can a mod change the title of the thread this is going to mess with my OCD all week because egg is a pleb who can’t forum properly LOL.

Shocked that Tracey is the 6 but I’m curious to see how it goes. Hoping he does a solid job there. It’s great Bomber had the balls to drop Moylan, that’s a big call which hopefully puts the rest of the squad on notice, ‘none of you ****s are safe’. Disappointed that Talakai lost his starting spot but I know he’ll still be very valuable coming off the bench. Feel bad for Trindall but he’s time will come again.

For me the good news is that Bomber didn't throw Moylan the #1 jumper, and hopefully has inspired Nikora to get his act together.
