I have high expectations of the club. Anything less than a 20+ point win in this game and I seriously doubt we played close to our potential.

Adding to the much better quality side we have, it is a massive Milestone for one of the very best players in our club's (game's) history. Another reason that every single player should be switched on and ready to absolutely rip in.

Too early in the season for me to expect peak performances. We played maybe 15 minutes of good footy last week. Lets improve on that and see how we go.

Felise Kaufusi out with a hamstring injury so Kenny gets to start for his 100th game. Billy Walters also drops out of squad. So I would expect either Joe Stimson or Brandon Smith to get the last spot on the bench.

Stimson should start. Smith should also be in the 17.

Yep. Not sure we need three props on the bench but it is a good one.

Hopefully Kasiano gets a little more game time this week. Looked strong in limited minutes last week.

Obviously trying to catch the fill-in FB out but jeez, doesn’t seem like a Bellamy style of play. Low percentage stuff.

Got to give him a few weeks.

Tigers have scrambled real well but we're showing no patience at all with the ball. We've done this over the years. Hopefully Bellamy rips into the at HT and we come out and look to build pressure.

Hard to avoid knocking on when you get shit service like that.

If we had a back on the bench I'd be suggesting Bellamy hook Suli.
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately
