    If the Tigers can put 36 on us, I'd hate to see what Cook, Murray, Latrell, Reynolds and co will do to us. They'll be looking to bounce back after a bad loss to Penrith.

    But if we hold the ball and run hard and don’t miss tackles we will win......

    Hate to tell you horse but it’s a 17 man game...Pay actually realised his bench last week was wrong and didn’t have balance.Hence he reinstated Holland as the utility player the club needs.

    Surely Harper is better than Montoya.

    I don’t mind Holland coming from the bench, he’s actually been alright there, but Montoya at centre, or even worse, on the wing, is horrible.

    Pity that we didn’t carry the winger/centre on the bench last week as we did in the previous weeks. Hoppa’s injury couldn’t have come on a worse week.

    He’ll surprise people.

    Definitely a better option than Harper who for the most part fires blanks in attack.

    How will he surprise people? He's an average CCup standard back that hasn't played in close to 12 months coming off a severe knee injury.

    He was slow before the injury it will be even worse now.

    Same sort of response I got when I backed Elliott when everyone else had written him off.

    Let’s wait and see. We’ll revisit this statement in a month or so Spoonman

    Yep it was criminal. That re-shuffle was happening no matter who in the back 5 got injured. Everyone keeps saying it happened because Hoppa got injured but it could have been anyone from 1 to 5.

    If Smith got injured Holland would have went to the wing and JMK to centre.

    To have JMK as our centre option defies belief to be honest. Its lucky Mbye is rubbish these days because a decent centre would have tore him to pieces.

    We dont have backrowers who can play in the outside backs so we cant afford not to carry a back on the bench

    Huge error from Pay. Realistically as soon as we got an injury in the backs the game was over. That shouldnt happen.

    You also creamed yourself over Britt being a great signing too so I wouldn't say your strike rate is that great.

    Let's see what happens in a months time.

    I think Horse meant for those that thought our backline couldn’t get any worse, prepare to be surprised.
