Be interesting to see if someone like Egan
is named in the 21. Katoa
seems a possibility but Egan
not ready for round one going off OZ media reports. You'd love to have them both but given their importance to the season surely neither is worth the risk unless 110% ready to go.
Chuck Chanel Harris-Tavita
in that same bracket and I wonder if that's why SOS got so much time in the trial because Chanel Harris-Tavita
's doubtful. Hopefully not. Same with Katoa
is good to go.
Fusitu'a is another interesting one. Supposedly recovered from a minor knock but do you chuck him in there when he hasn't played in about 10 months with no trial? Guess he's got to take the plunge at some stage unless he plays for Redcliffe. Their team naming will also be interesting today.
plays he surely won't go 80 minutes so that could change the dynamics on the bench given Sironen
is likely to play hooker. I love Jazz
's intent but he stops all the attacking momentum when he plays hooker so that's a serious concern.
Would love to see Sironen
start and for the last 20mins bring on Turner
and move Kodi to hooker but with the speed of the modern game asking Sironen
to play 60 straight minutes at hooker is a huge ask and if there was an injury in the forwards Turner
on the bench all of a sudden doesn't look so good.
to start and his ability to cover multiple positions in case of an early injury is a huge plus but going on the trial and the last game of last year Pompey
will be putting the pressure on him if his defence is not improved.
Would love to see Hayze get a chance at right centre instead of left at some point.
If anyone made it this far in my rant, you must have the patience of a saint!
