Rd 6 @ Canberra

Postby Scooter » Tue Apr 07, 2015 6:15 pm

Not a surprise especially following a Monday game Craig has done a cut and paste job with same 17 as last night.

Cecchin and Morris are the referees.

I will be so torn this game.

SWAS vs #MK5

They will line up against each other (albeit Waqa at centre)

Two incredible Fijians that are playing in the form of their careers. Waqa has been blitzing it each week, almost making his shit coach look good!

Waqa looks to be carrying an injury so may not play. You're right Nacho he IS making Ricky look good. He's been outstanding for them and even playing injured last week he was one of their best.

Billy out for four weeks according to latest article on Storm website.

Not a surprise he had his arm in sling for most of Billy's Buddies clinic apparently.

Damn.... Big loss. He was absolutely monstered by Manu. Coming from the side unexpectedly was obviously the major issue. He would have smashed Billy anyway but when he wasn't expecting it/not bracing for it, always a huge risk for injury.

All legit though, it was a great shot.

Good point. Much like when Beau Scott injured Billy's other shoulder in Origin with a late, off the ball hit, nothing said/done.

The NRL is clear in this regard... Hit anyone off the ball and injure them = All good. Make contact with someone kicking the ball though = Heavy penalty.... Makes perfect sense :roll:

I would also like to see C Munster at fullback ..Not just one game but the whole time it takes Billy to mend..
He will need more than just one game to find his feet at the high level.

How brave is Billy though..He played on as good as any fullback with a Bung shoulder,True Champion :-D :-D

I would vote Hampton at the back... that's where he's best suited anyway!
