We should request and exemption, although is he still injured or ready to go?

Maybe yeah.

I was just thinking that the roosters have been given dispensation to two players so maybe we ask I don’t know.

I’d just like to keep it to a minimum as far as reshuffling. Taffe trained at fullback and was having a cracker in the CS before injury.

I wouldn’t be risking any players that have any doubt over them. I don’t think Bennett is one to risk injured players.

Would be nice but I can’t see Wayne throwing him in to the NRL without a warmup game in reserves.

He hasn’t played since Charity Shield. He will need a run in the NSW Cup first.

Yeah it would be a big ask for sure Badwolf.

As much as it was a shit decision to get 4 weeks Mitchell has really got to pull his head in.

Injuries are always in every squad and suspensions don’t help at all particularly for stupid shit.

Walker hopefully has learnt to ignore the rubbish and let his footy do the talking.

Maybe put him on the Bench in the Benji role

Burns played 52 mins today before being replaced.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but ahem perhaps we can play Johnston at fullback and bring Burns into the team.

Yeah not a bad idea.

The only thing is though mate without Murray I think we need 4 forwards on the bench and play a direct game , kick the shit out of it and play it down their end.
I’d say with the way Bennett was in the presser and with troops down and against a quality side I think there will be a heavy emphasis on defence.

Graham out for fair while apparently.

I actually forgot about Host.

I’d put Host on the bench instead of Sele.

Yeah true. FMD…what great timing.

Probably hurt a hamstring

I think host deserves a spot before sele. Sorry didn’t see the correction post!

We’ll probably hear all about the courage of the Storm this week because Papa and George Jennings are out.

The media will then say how good it was that we bought Benji and if we get beat bag our premiership credentials and urge us to re sign Reynolds.
