Thursday Night Late Mail & Chat – Round 22

This post contains all your Thursday night chat and mail needs. The remainder of the late mail will be posted tomorrow morning and the banner will be revealed Friday evening!

STORM V RAIDERS, 7:50PM

STORM: Nelson Asofa-Solomona was a late out Wednesday night due to a hamstring issue and has been replaced on the bench by Tom Eisenhuth. Ryan Papenhuyzen looked gone again for all money with a knee injury during last week’s game but he saw it out and while still being listed in the casualty ward I haven’t seen anything placing him in doubt this week. Similarly, no news seems to be good news for Jahrome Hughes this round after being the most asked about player last weekend on Twitter, with the Cheese stating in a pre-match interview that he didn’t even realise Hughes was meant to be in doubt. Jordan Grant was the other player to be trimmed 24 hours out. Update: Per the mail. NAS out and Eisenhuth bench. Moeroa 18th man.

RAIDERS: Bailey Simonsson seems to have ticked all the boxes he needs in order to return from his toe injury and Sticky said that he will start at fullback with Jordan Rapana moving to the wing. Josh Papali’i actually started last week despite being an on-again-off-again late benching but it is always on the cards on game day. While not relevant for this round, it seems Charnze Nicholl-Klokstad could make his return at fullback next week despite seeming lost for the season which would trigger another shuffle in the backline. Matt Frawley and Siliva Havili were the first players cut. Update: Sutton bench, Soliola lock, Kris 18th man.

Thanks Stilesy. Appreciate your work. Simmo at FLB moves him off my bench where he has been for weeks and into my 17 – welcome back Bailey.

It was a troll post mate. Someone did a repost from round 25 2019 when he was out.

Paps will be back in the 1 next week. Hynes having an absolute shocker at the back. Hasn’t got to a single bomb on the full and showing no urgency. Looks nervous that his spot is under pressure

maybe now if Hughes misses with that concussion and Hynes is played in the halves … otherwise from what Cronk was saying, they are preferring Hynes as starter and injecting Papi when players are tired …

I think MELB have been losing their way a bit when Paps comes on, Hynes has been killing it. Think that is why they are taking a cautious approach with him. He isn’t back to his best just yet

Well, it’s been a crap year to top it off I’ve just stuffed up trading out CHN to Cameron Murray. Never get caught watching TV and enjoying a beer when there’s trading to be done.

CHN won’t be an issue for you for the rest of the year. But if u need a player on a budget, Curran is 200k cheaper and now has an 80min role. Beast

Thanks Trent mark – will look at Curren – can go Olakau’atu to Curren. Not what I want to do but CHN’s 5 points means I need a POD. Thanks for the tip. Good luck
