Losing Lisone means we lose 50 % of our best leg speed off our bench forward Rotation, it is a significant loss ( Bunty is still there so not all's lost).
For that reason it is a real shame that Lawton isn't fit....he could offset some of the loss of our Process ( you could substitute that word for speed and endurance).
If Paasi were fully fit there would be no worries, he is fast like Moimoi was for a tank.
Papalii is another that could have offset Lisones loss....purely on a Leg speed basis.
None of these guys are quite the same though....Lisone V.2 is quick and direct....make that very quick.
Add to the equation us missing Roach....more forward speed.
Imagine if Beale were fit and Kearney Rolled Ken off the bench as a direct speed swap for Lisone....Some one call a Tow truck it's gonna be a bad one....
People's solutions to Lisones speed ???
I would like to see Soosoomea to the wing and Ken to 2nd row, even if it wasjust for a short stint. Not sure how that would affect the defense, I would probably have him near the middle and Mannering on one edge
