If Halatau is there to cover dummy half and centre, Wouldn't it be better to have him fresh coming off the bench?

I don't think they're planning on Farah having a spell, might depend on the scoreline late in the game. I'm happy with Halatau at second row, doesn't have the dynamism of Thompson but I'd say he'll be more consistent across 80.
Massive bench. Massive smile on my face. I think we'll run 'em close.

Good side given injuries and suspensions with the obvious exception of the centres. We must be pushing the cap for Lawrence and Lulia to keep being selected over the kids. Who knows, Lawrence may have a balltearer this weekend, he's about due. Sick of Lulia only ever being seen running the pill up first pass out of a scrum though... Have a go or do everyone a favour and jog on.

This side just shows how much we need to invest in outside back depth for next year. In season's past we had guys like Nofa, Koro, Simona coming through the ranks who were all destined for NRL. Can't say the same this year.

Lodge is playing NYC today.

What could that mean?

Luani in? Hope not.
Akoula in? Then why was Lodge dropped.
Rowe in? Moses to 5/8 and Austin to bench (or vice versa)

That's a real surprise. Thought Lodge looked good last week, and I was hoping for a 4-forward bench.

Hopefully Akoula. I see Lodge is starting in the 2nd row for the NYC team?

I bet it's Luani. I bet Farah isn't playing.

I would say a backrower/ back cover like
Akoloua will be playing.

Qualities which Potter doesn't have in abundance are imagination and initiative. If Luaini is playing tonight then another I would add is an absence of logic. If Farah is tired or injured he should be replaced by Halatau who is a very good tackler and dummy half much better than Luani.

Lodge was great last week and deserves another shot.

We won games this year when we had 4 big forwards on the bench however Potter has changed things around for no reason

Happy if Sue is replacing Lodge.
Living the dream and praying for another premiership
