Calling for Sandor Earl to start over Chambers is certainly a choice.

I would 100% play Chambers on the wing over Earl. Every day...
Here here. Earls best position is "left right out" (Sorry to all the ladies out there)

Sandor does have the leaping touchdown but just about everywhere else I’d pick Chambers.

And there's the main reason why it's a tough call, he'll be marking Tupou.

Cronk is just going to kick to Tupou’s wing all night. He might end up with 2 or 3 tries against Chambers

I'm seeing Chambers to wing and Earl to the bench.

Doesn't matter, he'll probably only get 5 minutes.

Why isn’t Stimson on the bench?? He has played some good games this year and can score tries as well.

What value do we get with Earl on the bench??? Granted I’m no supercoach, but I cannot see any positive here.

Wow. Against a big side like the Roosters, this is yet another questionable bench call from Bellamy. As suggested, Earl surely won't get much of a run unless one of our backs goes down, so this is a massive gamble to effectively have a 3-man bench rotation in a prelim. :shock2:

...Punters think so too - we've gone from $2.20 odds to $2.35 (and drifting) since the final teams were named.
