    I think this game will be another grind it out affair which means Moses won't do shit. Unless it's in an open, lopsided game, that little bitch goes into hiding as his silky touch footy skills don't work as well against real defence. He's the ultimate front runner. Hopefully we put that smartass little prick back in his place.

    Me too. he's been there for a few weeks - surely early ball to Holland and Meaney to burn him with his pace

    His acceleration is rubbish

    Although this might be true, and does have good reasoning... Lewis is a better foil for Foran than Cogger. Cogger/Foran are similar roles... Lewis defence is way better than Cogger, and we are going for defensive mindset once again. This is evident by Pay's emphasis on defence in the last couple of games and points conceded and missed tackles have gone done big time. Not saying Lewis better than Cogger or anything.

    In order for us to play Foran we have to carry one player Cogger on the bench just for him in case he gets injured, just don't find it amusing.

    I have no idea how the Eels are so high with that team. The level of the entire competition really is so low this year

    I think they have a really good line up on paper. Saying that, I also said the same thing last year. No Ferguson is big for us.

    It should be Lewis or Cogger in and the other one out of the team completely. Fuck this extra half on the bench shit, just bring in Ogden

    The competition is absolute trash this year, the fact we are still even a slim chance to make the finals shows the quality.

    Cummins is just a shit ref. His bias is against good Rugby League, not necessarily just us. Can't believe what a pathetic pussy he was to let Cam Smith walk all over him last weekend. One sentence into that convo he should've told Smith to shut up or go to the bin.

    Why have a spare half on the bench?
    Ogden and Fualalo should find their way onto the bench.
    The eels are not as effective without Ferguson.
