    • The reason why brown is being banished is because brown and arthur have butted heads over the way brown should be playing, every tom, dick and harry knows, you do not question arthur or that results in you not playing first grade at parramatta. Brown will stay on as cover for the rest of the season but he will be gone by december. 

      Doesnt help that arthur expects more from brown as he is seen as a leadership player, but arthur is happy for other leadership players to play continuious poor footy. 

  • I'm not sure why this is such a big deal. Clearly having Marata on the bench gives coverage for an outside back as well as an extra middle.. But now Marata is starting BA feels he needs a bench player for outside back coverage. 

  • My head hurts. 

  • No this can't be true, Carty to 17

    Opacic ? 

  • What a dumb decision. Our bench looks pretty ordinary tbh and is going to provide little impact. Souths have a much better bench than us. I fear we are going to expect big minutes from Jr and RCG in the middle and it’s a chance of blowing up in our face.

    • That's a fair point Mannah Brow, the Souths pack have a habbit of aiming up against the Eels. Last year when they put 40 on us there forwards wore ours out. 

  • This can't be right, Rodwell gets 5 minutes meaning we're relying on maca and khafusi as the only reserve forwards. This has to be some kind of joke from Arthur 

  • BA is forced to have Jake as first choice utility because we only have 28 fit players.

  • This blog needs to be edited so it's easier to read.
