Jmac a confirmed out, best of luck to him and his wife!
Bonar almost definitely with that shoulder(?).
Kyron and EVW to replace them.

Durdin out, replace him with.... someone not as tall?

Then just rest whoever needs it (Goldy at the very least) and play whoever is healthy and could conceivably cover for them (hopefully Xerri and WW make it in!)

Need to spend the next six weeks getting a really good look at players to determine who is going to be on the list next year.

At least 10 players should be in the 'playing for their careers' basket.

Pittard and Atley really shouldn't play next week.
Hall needs to be dropped.
For senior players they were all woeful.
Mahony needs a rest. Bonar injured.
Tarrant sore?
But who do we bring in?
Surely Hayden back, Marley is a better option than Pittard and Atley, at least he knows how to halve a contest.
Walker, maybe give Crocker a game. Wood. Have I forgotten anyone?

Would love McGuiness to get 1-2 games by end of year. Undeveloped but good decision maker. I miss this.

We're going to get cut to pieces.

We could lose by triple figures this week.
I actually want the season over and could not care less if we didnt play again this year.

In a year where so much has gone wrong and theres been so much loss and impact on peoples lives, Norths was meant to be that outlet, that beacon of positivity to look forward to and look what they served up.

"Aiden Bonar (AC joint), Jed Anderson (eye), Josh Walker (corked thigh), Robbie Tarrant (corked calf) and Majak Daw (corked calf) all suffered setbacks and are in doubt to face Brisbane on Saturday."
Any North supporters residing in Brisbane or Gold Coast areas, pleas attend training with boots and a mouth guard.

If Shaw is serious this week Atley doesn’t play. Lazy count won’t even chase now.

Durdin is a deadset spud, so not sure why we would waste anymore time on him?

Mahoney needs a rest and everything Hall touches turns to sh*t.

Bonar, Walker, Tarrant, Daw and Jed might be injured.

Ins: W Walker, Hosie, Murphy, Hayden, Xerri(if it means never having to see Durdin again), Williams. Then bring in any of Crocker, Perez, McGuiness if they are physically fit enough.

Cupboard is bare! Please no Tom Campbell, unless he is played as a Ruckman only.

I have too.

I’m beginning to think if Rhyce sees something in you he doesn’t like them, he holds you to a standard that doesn’t apply to any other useless campaigner on the list.

Just another coach that seems to play his favourites.

I do find it puzzling that Marley, our best 1 on 1 small defender is out due to his disposal errors, while I watch several players with less of his combative nature make a string of horrific stuff ups.

I have a distinct feeling Shaw let’s it slide if you are one of his favourites.

The longer this season goes the more I fear he has no ******* idea what he is doing?

I can’t even see what they are trying to achieve at the moment other than to look totally incompetent.

Poor Goldy & Taz probably can't get a rest... Although, if they're injured in any way, please rest them. Campbell to come in for Goldy and/or Wood for Taz. EVW in the mix, but ONLY if he's actually ready. No point risking him for very little reward.

Don't totally agree with this, as I'm almost certain that Murphy is one of his favourites, but he hasn't overplayed him to this point. Having said that, I don't think he is a fan of Marley (probably something his brother passed on from back in the Pies day).
