Former Warriors prop Russell Packer could return to the Kiwi club, with the Sydney Morning Herald reporting the seven-Test New Zealand international could move back to the club in a loan move.

Warriors: Young gun Chanel Harris-Tavita has been dropped to the reserves, with Kodi Nikorima taking his starting spot. Unless CHT is swapped with hooker Karl Lawton, it looks unlikely that he'll earn a bench spot. Former Raider Jack Murchie has been included on the reserves for his new club, with he and Josh Curran giving coach Stephen Kearney forward depth. The Warriors have won their past three games against the Dragons.

Dragons: Veteran lock Trent Merrin has been named in jersey 18 but he could still retain his interchange position. That is set to depend on whether coach Paul McGregor deems it necessary to keep outside back Euan Aitken on the bench. McGregor selected a four-forward bench in rounds one and two. St George Illawarra have won only two of their past 11 away games.

One off - one dimensional play. Bash and barge. If this isn't the coach's plan why doesn't he drop some of them. Year after year.

We must start to look at the Coach. He clearly can't do it.

How many years do we have to put up with before we do something ?

To be honest with you I think these coaches don't know anymore than discerning supporters.

Mate - they can try though. They're paid a motza. He's failed for 7 years now. Could you keep getting that salary anywhere else after 7 years of failure ?

I think this is the problem when a club signs ex-players as coaches, it can be a bit too friendly between coach and management.
