Still would've thought he'd get some game time in case he's needed

Christian Welch out due to COVID-19 breach. Assume NAS moves to 10 and Tino to 13. Given the other players listed 18 to 21, you would expect Max King to play his first game since his injury.

Yep, I'd go with that too. Schonig unlucky to be dropped IMO.

Agree with you both on the shuffle.

Does it still count as dropped if you just miss out because other players have returned from injury/suspension? I guess you could argue he has been dropped for King, but King was in the first choice 17 to start the year before being injured.

The way injuries have gone this year, you never know what can happen. Hopefully he stays sharp and ready.

I am sorry but King is not in our top 17.

He seems like a great player to have in the club but his abilities rank lower than other players in the team. Its the harsh reality. Kind of like the Sandor Earl of our forward pack but less beautiful looking.

King is a decent footballer.

He's got smarts and ability....just needs to be more consistent and get a decent run at first grade (ie. less injuries)
Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time

Sutton easily the TigPies best player so far. Soft 6 agains, nit picking offside penalties giving them field position.

Piss poor defence by Nelson and Jesse though.

Wording from bunker on 3nd tigers try was different. Beyond the inside shoulder? So behind him but it's not an obstruction? Very different...

In a pretty average side Harry Grant is a shining star.

Another ordinary second half so far. Bellamy must be spewing

Twinged his hammy, reckon he did it chasing Jahrome's kick that went into touch.
