    Interesting, Callan gets a start ahead of Koteka and Fines-Leleiwasa ahead of Prior. Must be planned for player load management as neither Prior nor Koteka have done anything to be dropped, and they're still both on the bench.

    Winchester as the reserve hooker ahead of Ready, though. Ready's throwing last week was awful (general play was OK) so I wonder if this was a planned swap, also.

    And I hope Coops doesn't over-compensate again, to demonstrate that he's not a home-side ref, and blow us off the park.

    You'd think if there wasn't a genuine feeling that those swaps made a better team that the Rebels game would have been the time to do it, not playing the champs.

    I'd suggest it might be a horses for courses selection designed to run the Reds fatties off their feet then bring the orgnisation and power in to exploit that.

    Handled in another thread, doesn't seem planned.

    I tipped the Rabble but I'm on the edge of my seat cheering the Drua on right now...22-14 with 23 mins to go.

    The man in the Igloo just messaged he tipped Drua. Could be in the lead after missing a week & a half.

    Dura won my stake plus for the Force bet which I was silly enough to think we would beat the Reds.

    I studied the signs in the snow hard this week and they were screaming out the Drua for the win. 😂 Now if only the Force would listen and follow the plan.

    Testing times ahead without those lucky away wins to boost your score.

    Were those signs carved in yellow snow? At around minus 15 you might freeze off something important conjuring up this weeks signs.
