I Like that bench, Lawton brings speed through the middle, Murchie’s a big body with leg drive who’ll do better in the middle, Burrs alright(better than Alvaro). Keighran can cover heaps of spots and has good aggression, need to resign him.Team to play the Doggies:
1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
4. HOPOATE (let's see this prodigious talent)
6. Chanel Harris-Tavita
8. Jamayne Tounua-Brown
14. KEIGHRAN (utility)
15. LAWTON (for Jazz)
16. BURR (for Blair)
17. MURCHIE (for Jermaine)
Alvaro, Papali'i & Pompey can have a rest, AK in to cover hooker and or the outside backs. Murchie to slot in for Alvaro, Lawton for Papali'i & the new bloke for Pompey.
Gee the coaches mustn't rate Haze? Would like to see more of him and hopefully we see Roache sooner rather than later.
Big ask for the kid to step into fullback in a new team, I'd go with Peta, he's safe 9 times out of 10 and the 10th one is guaranteed comedy gold. Apart from his one try assist for the opposition every game he positions himself to run off the backline better than Roger Tuivasa-Sheck at times. Long term, Roger should be moved to centre to feed Jennings, Hiku inside Herbie, try Hayze at fullback or buy another one for next year, CNK ideally. Now we just need to balance it out with Brandon Smith, a big pommy prop with no teeth who hasn't bathed for months, a suspected Aussie rapist and the young Fijian flyer and we're sorted, how easy is this?
