    1. Gordon
    2. Don
    3. Sami
    4. Lee
    5. Cooper
    6. Brimson
    7. Elgey
    8. Wallace
    9. Peats
    10. James
    11. Proctor
    12. Hipgrave
    13. Arrow

    14. Rein
    15. Fotuaika
    16. Stockwell
    17. Latu

    Might as well try and get as prepared for next season as we can be. This ones gone anyway.
    If Taylor was dropped and LG elevated to the 7 jumper that would be absolute gold.

    He has picked Matthews again. Latu, Whitbread and Boyle are behind Matthews in Brennan’s pecking order. Yep.

    Elgey not in the 21 Bods, unless he's injured I'm guessing he's signed elsewhere and will be off this week.

    Yeah I noticed that but maybe Brennan just digging his heels in or he needs more forward and outside back options in reserve than halves.
    I gotta feeling you might be trying to stir me up NZ.

    I'd like him to stay just just much as you would Bods. Something just doesn't seem right though. Despite him playing the best footy he can for Tweed, and our halves looking arguably worse (as a whole) since he's been dropped, he seem's to be slipping further behind in the pecking order.

    Also, Elliot named as well. Thought his release was meant to be immediate?

    The things I do to not see Reins hopeless name included every week.. So frustrating.

    I really thought after how Matthews played last week and how Latu actually had a bit of a dig last week we would see Latu in and Matthews out.

    ^^^ don’t know what happened at the start of the year but I’ve seen enough in the last two games to be convinced he is an impact bench front rower, I wouldn’t start him but off the bench he offers genuine game changing quality.

    Matthews would be a handy Captain-Coach for the Currumbin Eagles

    Yeah he seemed a bit off pace at the start of the year and was very sketchy in defence the first few rounds (he wasnt alone). I heard Greg Alexander wrapping Latu on commentary about the potential they saw in him at penrith. We have him for a few years and with the season over I think id be pulling the trigger on him to get him back up to first grade as an impact player off the bench. With Boyd here next year we should have a monster pack and Matthews sure as hell aint apart of our long term plans.

    Is Will Matthews Brennan's Will Zillman?

    We should win this. Surprised to see Matthews in the mix too. Hopefully drops out between now and Saturday.

    Henderson the Goat for Cartwright, Wilbur the Horse Botherer for Henry and Matthews the Pipe Cleaner for Brennan ... they must be very damaging photos.

    I think Latu showed enough last week to warrant selection on the bench again, not sure how Mathews gets the gig in front of him

    Latu was good last week. would like to see something from him this last 7 weeks heading into post / pre season so we can count on him next year.

    Mathews surprised at start of year, and looked very capable but has dropped to the standard we expect. he really shouldnt see much more time in FG.

    next year rotation of James, Wallace, Boyd, Mofo seems pretty promising. If Latu gets it together he can be important as well.

    i also think after watching James closely lately, being one of his biggest supports here, and I actually take claim to being the first to notice his transition from firebrand to workhorse 2 years ago when everyone at first thought he was just playing soft... so i know my Ryan James.... but i think with Arrow playing 80, Proctor playing 80, hopefully another second rower playing 80.... James needs a spell in matches again.

    He has been a hero and done so much dirty work, but we need slightly more impact, and also a bit less of the slowness and lethargy that creeps in when he is buggered. Love him, but we need to help him by relieving some of the burden
