Thursday Night Late Mail & Chat – Round 5

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

KNIGHTS V SEA EAGLES, 7:50PM

KNIGHTS: “Friz will play apparently” is the direct quote from Barry Toohey himself. Toohey also claims that Brodie Jones should get more minutes than last week and that Leo Thompson could be in line for another start in place of Jacob Saifiti (not that it changed his output at all). Not expecting any other changes. Tox Hoy, Edrick Lee, Jaron Purcell, Dylan Lucas and Brayden Musgrove were the first players cut with Simi Sasagi and Pasami Saulo remaining on the extended bench.

SEA EAGLES: Absolute carnage here, with Tolutau Koula out with a minor calf complaint which has triggered a big backline swap. Reuben Garrick moves to fullback, Christian Tiupulotu shifts to the wing and Brad Parker makes his return from covid at centre. Toafofoa Sipley, Jorge Taufua, Kurt De Luis and Kaeo Weekes were trimmed 24 hours out with Ethan Bullemor and Ben Trbojevic still on the extended bench.

The Beer Whisperer

How was that tackle by Keppie any different to the one Hastings got three weeks for?

CoG

Well if dce can commit a professional foul,diving on the ball from a blatantly offside position and then they have a scrum -you know the answer

The Beer Whisperer

Yep. And the bunker no-look try award just now. Bobbling tries is fine when they do it.

evilmacca

if that was the Olak try – I agree – that to me looked like a classic bounced try the way it shot out like that … and no close look and no decent replay on Fox …

CoG

Nah EM saw a replay in the post game wrap -grounded the ball cleanly

evilmacca

cool – thanks CoG good to know … looked weird the way the ball went flying out in real time … disappointing in the coverage they gave no real looks at it … and other times they go frame by frame …

L.Thompson can only get 30 minutes even with a 3 man bench.

AOB sucks.

evilmacca

doesn’t he have a certain ex broncos coach helping / advising him (or has he left / been booted by now??) as he is his buddy??? Would explain a lot …

vertigo

Foran on track for an 80 minute zero. Fair effort.

evilmacca

yep and without being binned or sent off too!! Must be a record???

Mobile Chicane

Chris Sandow managed an 80 minute zero a number of years ago with no sin bin or send off. He was ‘buy of the week’ heading into that round coming off two big scores, but found a way to not trouble the scorers.
