"What do you do about that? Every time we play Sydney in Sydney it's a different side," Simpson said.

"I'm not too worried about that."

But he has his hands full thinking about Franklin.

Franklin was unstoppable in round one as Tom Barrass, Jeremy McGovern and Will Schofield failed to contain him.

Simpson needed little reminding about the round one performance.

"I'm hoping that heel is still lingering from round one," Simpson joked, in reference to the heel injury Franklin picked up from the hard Optus Stadium surface that day.

"He's an exceptional talent and we struggled to handle it. But we've got to deal with it.

"I'm sure some of our boys learnt some lessons that day. But part of it was he was just too good."
