Why are people suggesting Hooker out?
You're right - on form this year no way should he be 'rested' - 22 goals from 8 games at an average of 2.8...wow!! But he just looked really hampered last game against the Giants - and I feel like a week off would benefit him. Come to think of it though - he has looked 'hampered' for the last 3 or 4 years - maybe its just his running style - yet still provides a key forward target for us and is able to mark the ball, or bring it to ground - or at least make a contest.

He’s just slow, that’s what he is and it isn’t gonna change, he still provides a target and is super competitive, our other key forwards need him there, he’s every chance to fill his boots on the goal tally the next two matches, give him a spell after that if need be.
