    Anyone got any update ffs. We can't get a break. Only positive I can think of is Reynolds is hopefully back next week though it most likely means Des will move Mbye to 9...

    He was in moon boot so doesn't look good!

    Don't know enough about cook but he seems to be the only other genuine hooker atbour club. Would rather both josh and Moses stay clear from hooker

    I hear you and could handle Cook for a couple weeks though we need Lichaa asap and in finals if we are ANY hope. That said Mbye's defense is better then Reynolds in my book so he makes a better statement for 9. Even though we would rather him in the halves.

    Moses and Jacko aren't that great in the 9 jumper tbh. The starting hookers for both sides might be out on Friday just like the GF.

    Guessing it might be a syndesmosis (high ankle sprain), hopefully it doesn't require surgery.

    Souths will have alot more out than us next week so hopefully nothing else happens or has.

    Who? They have Keay and Luke out? G Stewart back.

    We have Lichaa, Reynolds (maybe), Tolman (maybe), Williams.

    Didn't look great, it buckled badly then Bird fell on it. Guess they won't know at this point and the moon boot made sense till they do, fingers crossed for now.

    We are in much better position this year we can move mbye to hooker and his 10 times the player he was last year. Would be easily the quick est hooker in the game. Or Reynolds to hooker but wouldn't want him defending in the middle.

    Des said Lichaa might have a fracture to his lower leg. Will have scans tomorrow.

    Possibly Walker from reports and Sutton (his hamstring was sore and might go mid game if they risk him).

    Farout I hope its nothing bad and he is okay.

    Obviuously we need Lichaa, the bloke has to make a shitload of tackles through the middle, both Mbye and Reynolds will flop at that...though it is easier to defend through the middle rather than on an edge so who knows. Moses will offer better service than Josh, but Josh will be my dynamic out of dh and could cause some issues.

    I feel our season hangs on the fallout of Lichaa's injury unfortunately, such an important position that it makes you wonder why we don't have a second specialist 9 in our top 25 that we can rely on.

    Cost us a ****ing grand final last year.

    Looked bad. A fracture would be a minimum 4-6 weeks. I believe we need a specialist in that position so bring in Cook.

    I haven't seen Mbye miss too many tackles. I think he'd go good at 9. He would go good almost anywhere actually.

    Imo play Reynolds at 9 in attack but have him shift to 6 for defence and whack Moses in the middle.
    Not a big fan of Lane being on the same time as Kasiano when the pressure is on, so keeping Jackson on the edge is crucial imo

    Sounds crazy but I'd seriously consider hodko at 9 with Reynolds and Mbye in the halves. He's leaving and gives the others time to develop their combination but keeps him on the Park, easily the best defender of the three and the worst runner. Definately have him defending in the middle, and he can occasionally drop back on tackle 4/5. Having a Hooker who can kick would be amazing for a change. I'd rather all three of hodko, jrey and Mbye on the field with a 4 forward bench than bringing in cook, benching a half or dropping one of them. At least defend him in the middle.
