Tim Moltzen
vs

Was last weekend’s abysmal effort against the Bulldogs a one off, or a preview of the post Bennett Dragons? Can Captain Hornby rally his troops against arch enemies the Tigers, or will Moltzen have this veteran’s measure?

Judas or just a young man put in a tough situation? Moltzen went close to joining the famous Red V in the off-season only to hop back in the Tiger’s den at the last minute. Can he rise above the jeers and steer the Tigers to victory?

Has Gus really brought this Penrith speedster back from the brink of playing park footy or is the representative hype surrounding Jennings a myth like the famous Lithgow Panther? Will Jennings show Inglis his paws or claws?

As Greg Alexander said this week...get Greg the ball! This mighty bunny is been hamstrung by a lack of quality footy and he will need to come out of his burrow if he wants to remain the game's dominate centre.

Ben Barba
vs

The Locke Rocket destroyed many defensive lines in 2011 and is looking the goods to repeats those efforts this season. Does this Warriors number No.1 have the key to unlock the Doggies defence and bust through the Bulldogs?

While Barba has shown that he is not just a speed bump who can score tries he still has a long way to go before he can put on big hits like Sam Kasiano. Facing off against the huge Warriors team will test out Benny and the Bulldog boys.

King Benny filled up the Broncos trophy cabinet during his 20 years of service in Brisbane. Will his time in the steel city deliver the same winning results or will they need to dig up a few more star players before the Knights strike gold?

Replacing Corey Parker with Big Petero is a luxury that not too many teams have in the gear bag. Should Petero struggle to keep his old legs pumping the Broncos are also prepared to bring back Alfie for a stint in the forwards.

Smithy and the Chookies will be looking to crack a win this week after hatching a big duck egg last week against the Penny Panthers. Can the veteran coach pluck victory from the Green machine?

The Raiders have all the weapons required to make the top eight in 2012 including a high-flying rookie in Jack Wighton. Can the Furner brothers keep the Raiders consistent or will the ship start slowly sinking...again?

Mead's Magic Hand

Slippery Slater

Wednesday 14th March
Wednesday 14th March

This freak try put David Mead in the rugby league highlights hall of fame and has been shown on repeat more times that the Simpsons halloween special. Does one great try define a career or does Mead need to better his own brillance to beat Slater?

Slater has dominated all challengers thus far in Versus but can his sideline streak compete against David Mead's modern day marvel? Cast your vote and determine which try deserves Versus supremacy.

The Matulino Mash

Kamikazi Kasiano

Wednesday 14th March

When playing against the Warriors it is often difficult to decide which player to run at to avoid getting punished. Make the wrong choice and you could end up on the casualty list with Matulino's shoulder imprinted on your jersey.

Standing at eight-foot tall, this Bulldogs enforcer is no small puppy. Can Kasiano match up to the size and strength of the cross-tasman tanks or will it be a safer option to remain in the kennel?

There haven't been too many victory parties at this suburban ground in the past decade but the new Sharkies brigade are out to change that this season. Can Gal and Toddy give Shark Park that winning feeling and restore some pride in the shire?

Brookvale Oval

Fortress Brookvale is one of the Sea Eagles secret weapons as sometimes the opposing team drive past the stadium thinking that it is just a local park. Will the walls remain intact in 2012 or is it time to build a new stadium?

The Modern Pivot

The Classic Halfback

Halfback of Five-Eighth?
Classic hair, classic approach
The Modern Pivot

It proved too big a challenge for Benji to switch from 6 to 7, but Thurston has the incentive of a Maroons and Kangaroos jumper to ensure the transition from 7 to 6 is successful. Can he prove history and the doubters wrong?

The Classic Halfback

Back in Sterlo's day the number No.7 meant that it was your job to feed the scrum, pick up the ball and then dive while passing it to your teammate. Ahh, the good old days when short shorts and long hair were common place on the footy field.
