No. Especially with Grant, Finucane and Kafusi likely to return. I'm hoping we can somehow jag a try, but I'm not confident of that either. Hopefully Thommo and Hethro fire up and Topine has another good game.
I'm optimistic that if Barrett picks the right team that we can be more competitive.. But no, we can't win. The new rules don't allow upsets and they have too much strike power.. So it could still get ugly late in the game..
People need to remember it was 14-0 for fifty minutes last week and that was with Lewis going off after 10 minutes and with no Jackson, Thompson and DWZ who are all back this week.. So hopefully with all of those guys in, we can show improvement. But scoring will still be a problem, especially against Melbourne's defence which has only conceded 13 points a game so far..
The real test is the week after against Nth Qld who are winless and concede 30ppg. If we can't beat them or score, then we're in deep shit.
Harry Grant will do a similar job to what Damien did to us last game..Metres through the middle and Pap will kill us in support play. I FEEL for our young pups as they need alot of support and Veteran leadership to help them through the challenges.. Our vets have been long gone..
