In an ideal world you wouldn't move Taupau to front row, but I think for this game it's clear it's the best option. Without Woods, you really need the size of Taupau. He needs to fill in and do lots of hit ups, lots and lots of metres. Work in the middle. There is no one else big enough, IMO.

IMO its a no brainer...without Lodge and Woods Taupau is the only other big bopper we got...

and that leaves Ava and Bichanan on the bench.

He cold start with Ava and leave Taupau at lock but then our bench looks weak!

For me it's a no to moving Taupau. He's paying in the middle anyway so we are getting what we need from him, so moving him and bringing in a smaller lock in is just like replacing Woods with a lock.

I would move Sue in tight for this game. It's not ideal but it never is when you have injuries.

Akaoula to start on the right, Sue to bench front rower and Ava starting.

Shouldn't have let Brown go

8.Ava
9.Farah
10.Galloway
11.Akaoula
12 Sironen
13.Taupau

14.Sue
15.Buchanen
16.Lamar
17.Santi

:roll:

gotta love our fan base. 1 or 2 injuries after a brutal game and we're already laying into the staff.

we're 2 wins and 1 loss against a team that hasnt been beaten in 200 days...jeez louise.

if we have injuries this year worse than the last two, then you can talk. last year we had 2nd rowers on the wings, cory paterson played a couple out there which is beyond ridiculous.

I don't think it's madness to have faith in Moses defence. Doesn't matter who is next to him he will still make the tackles he has been making.

How many have we out? Is it 3,4,5?

As far as I am aware, we have ONE out because of injury and one on suspension.

Hardly wrist slitting time.

Lodge does not come into this equation as he may have been injured on his big night out.
