With returns by George (possibly to this week) and Walshy in the next few, it poses the question of who makes way.
LOB has been the sub two weeks running (no pun intended) and with Blacres, Ollie and couple of others making the wings their own, I see him getting pushed into the twos meaning someone from the 22 would go to the sub bench plus one other would need to make way, but who?
I assume we will play two rucks.
Players on the chopping block after round one were Owies, Martin and Fisher. Martin succumbed to injury (we think) and Owies and Fisher were persisted with and played good games. But were they good enough?
Ed "The Rookie" Curnow looked in all sorts in the practice games. In rounds 1 and 2, he has taken some pretty handy scalps in Prestia and Guthrie. After a year out, he has lost none of his endurance/gut running and grit and Vossy has stated he is part of the plan (I suspect until form suggests otherwise).
Gov has been much maligned these two weeks but I'm prepared to accept Good Gov/Bad Gov for now because structurally his is vital to us. Played on Dusty at times last week and on Cameron this week and wasn't disgraced (I'd have to watch the game again but live I thought Cameron capitalised on mismatches he created rather beating his opponent one on one).
Thoughts as to who makes way?
