Can we at least be a little different and try a second ruck?

I don't know enough about the next tier to say but I think we saw Mansell and Ross are probably ready to go back and work out a few things and Edwards will clearly miss.

Grimes obviously comes back and I think CCJ would be a good in structurally. I'd love to see MRJ unleashed but I think that won't happen until Dreamtime, so it might be time for Naish or Ralph-Smith to have a run.

There were quite a few who were pantsed to night.
Astbury, Castagna, Houli, Riewoldt, Ross and Lynch were probably at the top of that list.
Dimma also, and his performance further complicated by his decision to go in against a powerful big man forward line, without a second tall to help out Nank.

Astbury, Houli Riewoldt and Lynch will not be dropped, but Castagna’s form has been poor for a couple of weeks and maybe it is time for him to take a break.
I’d leave out Castagna, Mansell, Ross and the injured Edwards.

In Coleman-Jones, Grimes, Rioli M and Stacky.

B Astbury Balta Grimes
HB Broad Vlastuin Short
C McIntosh Martin Baker
HF Collier-Dawkins Riewoldt Rioli D
F Coleman-Jones Lynch Aarts
R Nankervis Graham Bolton
I/C Houli, Pickett, Rioli M and Stack.
Sub Ross.

yeah we have to play a 2nd ruck.

Marlion has rockets in his shoes, and its thrilling to see him propel,

but we're just handing the opposition momentum when Nank takes a rest.

I cant see how the MC won't see this and play another ruckman.

In Grimes, Naish,
Out Edwards (inj), Castagna,

Don't think CCJ will come in as the Giants have no rucks but if he does Mansell may go out.
Ross was pretty good in the first half then had a horror 2nd half

Neither Naish or Grimes can play Edwards or Castagna's role. Mansell almost a certainty to make way for Grimes. Richmond very like for like in their changes.

We should move Baker into the middle to take the Edwards role. I agree Mansell may make way for Grimes but if that happens Castagna still has to go for someone imo . He is stinking it up too much to remain in the team and we won't be losing anything by replacing him on current form
