:lol:

Let's not forget though that they beat us twice in 2018 and gave us real trouble in 2019!

Pappy still out with achilles. Good to see Brandon and Momirovski back in the 21. If Brandon is fit would replace Ryley on the bench. Surprised that Ricky Leutele isn't in the squad this week.

Paps missing another game is slightly concerning.

Can't wait to see our future #9 in action this weekend.

Ricky Leutele must either have an injury or possibly hasn't been able to meet the training standards etc.
Good that Momirovski must be fit again though as pretty sure Lee is injured and wasnt hooked.

As long as one of Momirovski or Lee is available for finals we should be ok, as think there is no chance for Leutele now.

Lee hurt himself, played on for a bit, but then went off. After the game you could see him showing a cowboys player where he had hurt his leg/ankle and when he noticed the camera was on him, he quickly stopped.

Agree re Ricky. This is his 4th week out of quarantine and with the team. If it was going to happen , it was this week.

Assuming Penrith and Storm win next week, Round 20 will essentially be a dead rubber as we will finish second regardless, maybe that may be a good time to give Leutele a run ?

Leutele was an in case of emergency signing I think. Was likely never going to play but he gets a bit of coin and we get his experience and depth.
