You know, supposing Tui absolutely kills it at fullback... To the extent that the consensus is, how can we really replace him? That he needs to be involved in the attack more than being on the wing could ever possibly allow...
It would be really interesting to see if they brought ST back in at 5/8.
Who's playing NSW cup this weekend then?
Rapira in my opinion is only one average season away from being our least desirable prop, which is crazy considering only a couple of years ago he was a first pick Kiwi. I expect one of our newcomers or youngsters will solidify the wing position and effective consign Fish to permanent depth or departure. Both Rapira and Fish break too often and take far too long to return to form.
I'll be the negative one and come out and say it. Whilst I confess that there is probably noone else, I think Allwood on the right wing is a recipe for disaster, he has a tendency to ball watch and get caught in too far. Pretty much exactly like every right wing we have had since Sean Hoppe (exaggerating for effect, but sadly not by that much).
Ugh those early season tries we give up where the goal line defence is rock solid they go through the hands, no overlap, but the winger comes in and its an easy try in the corner. *shudder*Get the knights wingers into your fantasy teams. Hopefully they tried to train some of the terrible habits from that raiders defence out of him.
Lolohea wasn’t exactly a rock at the back in the lower grades either, I think we’ll score some nice tries, but concede even more, just like the last time we played in Newcastle.
