Norrie wasn't great was he.

Finch will be picked. Safe option.

Your proberbly right, but i believe Hampton is worth the gamble though, surround him with the 4 rep boys he can ease into FG alot easier. Norrie was useless, dominated constantly, am i the only guy that thought Slade Griffen was really good againat the Titans? He should keep a bench spot. I love Tohu in the middle third aswell, he has great footwork and a big engine, and is a reliable defender. Gets caught out a little on the edges, was sublime tonight when he was pushed in.

Passing game will be better utilsed in the middle as well.

Going to be a great prop one day.

After watching the presser from last night its obvious Bellamy will name Finch as replacement but I wouldn't be surprised to see Hampton on the bench.

Finch will get better, but I'd love to see Hampton get the 5/8 spot this weekend. Can even see Billy and Ben (if Ben is picked to start) swapping positions during the game, just to change things up. Have to be careful with this game as the Tigers have notched up a few wins on the board.

I think Moors is in front of Setu in terms of selection - even more so now with the news Setu won't be around in 2014.

I don't want to see Harris pushed up to prop. His step is what creates space in the back row. Hinchcliffe has him covered at lock, but I hope he stays in the second row/lock

I trust Bellamy...but I don't think Finch is the way to go as Widdop's replacement.

Whatha..I haven`t seen a more ridiculous idea for a long time.We NEED Coops playing.We have the luxury of having the Australian Half-back playing and winning games for us and you want him on the bench...NO NO NO NO NO. Put Hampton on the bench BUT NOT at the expense of COOPS.

It's not ridiculous at all. And backing up from an origin game starting Cronk off the bench isn't a ridiculous idea at all.

Anyway..at the very least, Hampton should be on the bench.
