Pity Skelton hasn't made it back on the field for this game. We desperately need the opportunities he creates! Gonna be a good match though!

Is he injured or is it that his form doesnt warrant selection - i know he had a back issue but he was subsequently on the bench, appears to be training with the team.

Just my opinion but i believe his fitness is way off causing him to be a real liability in defense. Obviously being new to the game doesn't help either.

I feel It is no coincidence that he hasn't played since a really lackluster performance against Newtown. His effort in defending their first try was that bad i wouldn't have been surprised if the coach had pulled him off the field immediately.

Not so sure about the bad back as he was on the bench against Norths ... i take whatever Gus says with a grain of salt.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him included on match day. It was obvious to everyone (including the Dogs' coaching staff) that Lumelume wasn't up to it last week.

NO ABILITY.
Its so annoying going into a grand final and we aren't at our strongest.
Missing Skelton,ZDC,BBO,

I reckon Clarke should be on the bench instead of Hayward too.

Gus and staff have dropped the ball by not getting all the games into some players to qualify for the Nsw cup team.
Flanagan,Kiraz,Stimson,Burns

Yeah not sure why Kiraz isn't able to play...
Surely he played enough games before debuting in first grade?

He can play but there's no reason to play him, he's a first grader now.

There have been some strange selections all season in all the lower grades.

I can only assume Hayward being picked is to provide some cover for Rajab???

Leaves a big onus on Gray.

Is ZDC any chance of a late inclusion ? .... haven't kept tabs on his injury.
