With the injuries / management of Hodge and Hipwood and the announced 'ins' tonight, I think the changes will be McInerney and Mathieson.

I know someone mentioned a third change, but looking at the remaining 20 players that played the Giants, I couldn't find an obvious player to omit unless it is an omission for structural reasons i.e. similar to when Walker was dropped against the Dogs.

McInerney is an obvious in, but I'd be surprised if we went for another tall such as Walker or Payne; unless of course we dropped Lester because we wanted that bigger key position player. As for Hodge's replacement, although not like for like, I reckon we'd go for another mid and Mathieson is the only one that has been brought into the squad. Christensen and Keays are too like for like for mine, so not sure we'd bring in Keays without dropping Mathieson.
Christo could be Hodges replacement......did some work down back late last year n was alright at it.

No SPP for Port. He killed us last time.

Boak comes back in though, and crazy Hinkley has brought in Sutcliffee in place of Duursma.

Well I guess Walker can go forward or back and with a query over where Adams might play it gives us extra flexibility that we wouldn't have with Payne.

Although I'm sure they have a set plan in mind.

There are other teams?
We have plenty of tall flexibility if needed so there are a few options to mix and match between forward, back and the two rucks depending on how the game pans out.

Port taking out Duursma is a bit of a surprise. It almost seems like a reactionary move by them.

Good on Josh Walker getting back in.

You called it 3KZ is Football :thumbsu:

Whilst I fear we have a very tall lineup, it is a side that will have Port guessing given the flexibility of many of of our players.
I tipped this! JOSH WALKER and RYAN LESTER ARE TOP 22 THIS WEEK!

Quietly confident. I think we got this one, same style as last week with Walker Adams and McInerney adding more flexibility to the line up. Not relying on hipwood that heavily looks like a blessing now.
We won against Port last time because of Hippy. Not having him this weekend is a huuuge loss
