  • Interesting to see Dunster on the bench. Perhaps when he comes on he plays centre and niukore to the middle.

  • I am really concerned about Matterson.  Not only is his value decreasing but his symptoms have been lingering for a while now.

    • It is a concern how long this is dragging on. Mind you, given how he accused the Tigers of being reckless in his injury management when he was there, I'm sure the Eels are being very careful.

      • Yes but being careful is one thing this seems to be something else hopefully it's not as serious as it seems to be 

      • Yea exactly. I wonder how much this impacts teams interest in him. 

  • That's disappointing. 
    Haze to Centre and Niukore to the bench? 

    • I'd leave Marata in the centres and put Wiremu Grieg on the bench.

      • Sure but if that was happening why wouldn't BA just announce Grieg onto the bench? 

        • Yes I know, he should just start with Haze then. Weak bench.

          • With Marata on the bench it's not too bad. Big boys there.
