Album: Choose Your Team To Keep Our Season Alive Vs Penrith
We owe Penrith some serious come-uppance.<br /> <br /> We cannot afford to keep losing games.<br /> <br /> And it's time for our forwards to sort their shit out.<br /> Against Manly, our numbers 8 - 17 averaged 58 metres each. Manly's 8 - 17 averaged 88 metres each. All referee issues, handling mistakes, poor half decisions aside - that is enough to lose right there.<br /> <br /> Sadly, with Packer and Lousi injured again we are low on options. Big losses, as these guys are our largest prop and second rower respectively.<br /> <br /> 1 Locke (great game versus Manly)<br /> 2 Laumape<br /> 3 Hurrell<br /> 4 Nielsen<br /> 5 Vatuvei<br /> 6 Leuluai<br /> 7 Johnson<br /> 8 Matulino<br /> 9 Friend<br /> 10 Rapira<br /> 11 Mannering<br /> 12 The biggest / hardest running second rower we have who is not named Elijah Taylor<br /> 13 Lowrie<br /> <br /> 14 Matagi (into lock)<br /> 15 Gubb (Package if healthy)<br /> 16 Mateo (kick his ass with a bench start)<br /> 17 Lillyman<br /> <br /> Sorry Peyroux, but I am sick of you being used for a few paltry minutes for minimal effect. Laumape and Hurrel pulled their act together against Manly and I will back them to play a whole game. We shouldn't need a babysitter on the bench when we are getting crushed in the forwards every week.<br /> <br /> Also was tempted to chuck Leuluai at 9 and Godinet into the halves, as I think we need something slightly drastic to shake things up and get this team rolling before our season is over.<br /> <br /> Palavi, Ikahihifo, Lousi (if healthy), Taukeiaho are all options for my 12 jersey.<br /> <br /> Memo to Elliot: I think we'd be better off with 3 props on the field than with 3 small second rowers.
