Is King Vuniyayawa ready for a second row bench spot? I haven't seen a lot of ISP this year so don't know how he's been going overall but I've seen some glimpses of promise. Are we allowed to use him until Pulu and Harris are back? Whatever we do with the bench rotations over the next few weeks it has to be different to the failures of the last few rounds.
I want to see Satae start and given more minutes to prove he is first grade material.
No Beale, Hiku and Mannering. Had enough of them.
I liked what i saw of Vuna and believe he should get another shot
How many times are we gonna get dominated through the middle once our starting middle forwards come off the field? Playing Tevaga for 60 minutes in order to rotate our middle forwards a little more frequently is not the answer lol. Play 2 80 minute second rowers and share the load between the actual middle forwards with proper size. Play Tevaga if we win the ruck. Not when we're getting dropped at contact every run, making 30m a set and allowing the opposition to poke their nose through every run.
8)Satae - (chuck the biggest boys on first + see how he goes with a fair run against the opposition starters rather than him trying to arrest opposition momentum. The other fresh middles can cover for his lateral movement)
17)Sipley - (116kg playing almost the same minutes as Lisone and 40% of his run metres are post contact almost every game he's played. Even his tackle efficiency (95%) is better than Lisone's (85%))
Swap all the middles out at 20 minutes so we overpower the opposition with power and energy. Gavet and Paasi cover 1 prop role. Blair, Sao, Sipley, Satae (and Tevaga if needed) cover the other 2 middle roles (160 minutes).
