    It's a good team, probably the best one we can field at the moment. Hopefully the broncos come back stuffed, after smashing the roaches of course.

    Very good news with Benry.

    Looks like Sebs place in the team is increasingly less doubtful week by week.

    I read it as : there were only two players that could be dropped ...Seb or Havili for Benry. Looks like Seb is a rung higher than Havili which is about right imo.

    Can't for the life of me understand Havili not being there after a bye. Henry can fill in at hooker, obviously, but all I can see is big minutes for Friend, and sloppy service from his tired arms leading to knock ons and momentum killing poor passes in the last 20 minutes. Don't think that will be a match decider though - I'm still as confident as a cock on a honeymoon.

    lol yeah I know bro.

    I should have said ......the 13 configuration is more important than an impact hooker in the decision as to who to leave out.

    Friends not perfect...annoys me actually.....but he is an adequate hooker and can genuinely play the whole game....Sebs big hits are more important than the hooking impact for mine....more the line speed he encourages from all of them.

    I would have picked:

    16 Havili
    17 Lisone

    As I don't feel Gubb can cut it in FG and Havili needs more game time. Well, more we need more game time from Havili, the dude is a bit of a gun. Particularly with our prop stocks low, a harder hitting and tough to tackle number 9 seems appealing.

    But I can understand Henry being chosen, he's a fairly likable type.

    Ben Henry will probably get his turn as Hooker , he's done a good job for Kiwis.

    We'll find out with Gub aye.

    He has had his major screw up. If he is not a learning bot it is over for him.

    If Seb can drop the brain snapping Gub can do it. I can only remember two things about Gub. Excellent V the Rabbits.....owned by the Dogs....brain snap offload.

    Otherwise I've seen stuff all of him.

    A surprisingly good job tbh. Just another thing he's better than Taylor at, I guess. It leaves the equation looking roughly like this:

    Benry: Playing hooker, playing centre, one on one defense, conservative error free attack
    Taylor: Mid-Air gumby step, no look passes, Kobe Bryant passing impersonations

    Tongue in cheek guys, but I bring up Taylor because realistically it was always going to be him OR Benry, not both.

    Good team, not sure Gubb offers anything that Havilli doesn't though. Seen very little that is impressive with Gubb.
    This must be Gubb's last chance to be a first grader at the Warriors, I'm not a believer in him as a first grader but I hope he can do something because we need a win. If he can make his tackles and run hard for 30 minutes without going backwards or dropping the ball I'll be happy. Nothing flashy, just lay the platform.
    All of our back rowers need to scream out for the ball and make some meters this week, they have not been making a consistent enough impact this year for my liking. Bukuya's been like a ghost recently and I really want to see him show us some of this gap running that people talk about that I haven't seen.
    This week is a good chance for us to prove our top 8 credentials and anything less than a win is unacceptable.
    Time to stand up and be counted!!

    Pretty good team - starting 13 is damn near perfect. Have questions with the bench. Would have preferred Mateo out. Also not sure about Benry, other than he can provide cover in the back line and at hooker. As an impact forward off the bench he doesn't offer much IMO. I guess there are limited options once we get passed the initial 13 starting.

    Good team. Missing Matulino no doubt played a hand in Havilli being dropped IMO. Simply can't afford a 3 prop rotation without Matulino and Lillyman backing up.

    Agreed. If Lillyman gets injured or can't back up I suspect Havili may get called up and we play small-ball.

    THE NRMA Insurance Broncos have named halfback Ben Hunt to play against the New Zealand Warriors over in Auckland this Saturday night.
    Hunt is currently in the Queensland Origin squad, but is not certain to play with Daly Cherry-Evans still fighting injury to be ready in time for Game 2 on Wednesday night.
    The talented Jake Granville is named at hooker for the injured Andrew McCullough (knee), with Ben Hannant named to replace co-captain Corey Parker (cheekbone).
    Auckland-born Alex Glenn has been named Captain in the absence of Parker and Hodges.

    McCullogh and Parker out through injury. Will be interesting to hear if Hodges, Thaiday, Gillett get on the plane...

    Probably best team we have available, wonder when a good time to give Lolohea/Lisone/RFM a run is?

    If I'm being totally honest I'd probably rate both Seb and Henry better then Bukaya atm.

    That guy just ain't cutting it for me.

    I'm less concerned about his brain snaps than I am with wether he's actually first grade propping quality or not.

    Hodges, Thaiday, Gillett not named. Interesting.

    Makes their back row and bench look very light in quality. That makes me a little more nervous than if we were playing a full strength team that we always step up for.
