He's generally involved in as many, if not more, opposition scores as he is ours IMHO.
You’re not going to get support from me on that one. His good far outweighs the bad. But his 100 metre penalty was a bit of a stinker. Redeemed himself 10 minutes later with a goal to seal the win.

Rekon de Goey plays. seems like an injury that can’t do more damage if something goes wrong. Sit him at FF, he will eat the saints defenders alive like last time around

Really want to risk one of our premium commodities in a game we should be able to win without him?

What us his actual injury? Because a lot of injuries you can play with and will do no further damage. For example certain knee injuries you can play with it just won't heal if you play or particular types of back injuries.

Shin I believe.

For posters that can remember didn’t Peter Daicos have some shin issue at some point?
I’m sure he said it was his worst ever injury.

35Daicos would know I’m sure?

This game will be harder than the Carlton one. De Goey must play if he can.
The Carlton game was close because we turned up but weren't switched on, and were flat footed for majority of the match. When we decided to lift our effort we kicked the next 5 goals. I would like to think we wont play with the same flatness as last week, plus the Saints dont have a Patty Cripps. In my opinion l think we can win this by a comfortable margin.

I certainly remember Daicos having had big problems with his feet, as well as with his knees. I don't remember a shin issue, but it was a long time ago, and my memory is not what it used to be, so it may well have happened!

Sorry I disagree. There are absolutely no ‘easy wins’. As seen last week Carlton nearly beat us and saints are better than the blues. We can’t afford to simply ‘rest’ him right now unless totally required. With Cox and Elliot out, our forward structure is hurt too much without JDG

He didn’t finish the training session, so is clearly hampered. Will probably be named but will be touch and go to play. He has an injury that may require rest to improve.

Stress fractures in the small bones of the feet - and that was ongoing until he retired.

I realise there are no easy wins, but if we are truly a premiership favourite, without JDG we should be able to beat the Saints at the G. Considering the possible in's as well, Beams, Wells and Sier.
