Maybe he picked up an injury?

Will probably win this week and give us all hope for next year :laughing:

Stewart to stink it up again. I really liked him in defense.

Not having hooker in could possibly mean his papers may be stamped or woosha is sending a final f you to hooker

Francis not in the team over Gleeson is still baffling unless he’s gone

As with a couple of posters, Hooker’s omission is very interesting. He had a rest, and you’d think they would be willing to play him if they felt he’d be up to it.

FWIW I think we win this game as well.

He did okay with Nic Nat. Throwing him in the deep end. I like it.

Gleeson and Cutler still in the team. Boy oh boy wowee!

Not good signs for their futures at the club in regards to Townsend, Hibberd, Francis or Hooker it seems. Phillips will be re-signed for another year as ruck coverage most likely.

Ive got a feeling that we will keep Gleeson and lose hooker and francis

At least he is an emergency this week, I think it is terrible treatment of him, and hopefully just relates to his relationship with Worsfold, and Truck gives him a fair go, but at least Zerk is getting some games.

Francis not being on the radar is a concern, supposedly he played well in the scratch match.
