I notice a couple of teams have Reynolds at 6 and no Marshall in the 17. My question is who is going to play five-eighth when Reynolds runs out of gas?

Unfortunately Liddle has already shown that he is not robust enough to play in the middle, call the experiment a failure and look somewhere else, Sue is not a good enough player for the rest of the team to play a man short frequently, Grant is as good , no HIA history to my knowledge
He is carrying a sternum injury and coming back from a double shoulder job, he done well just to get on the paddock. He will be a great player, but playing in a team that is low on speed, power and ability;ity is not helping him at present

100% right he blow like a hurricane last time, he needs 2-3 weeks in reggies.

Okay, I may get shot down, but I think:

1) Rochow and McQueen should not see FG again unless we have injuries..both are outright plodders.
2) The Taylor at 9 experiment should end now! its lock only for Taylor,
3) Time Benji went back to the bench where we was always going to play from
4) Eiso, Twal, Benji, Aloiai/MCK should make up the bench


Our backrow should be:

11 - Lawrence
12- MCK/Aloiai
13-Taylor

Our centres should be:

3- Marsters
4- Fonua

Wingers:

2- MWZ/Nofo
5- Thompson

FB:
1) Lolohea,


Losing 4 from our last 5 has been poor!.
Stick to that as the preferred side IC and we just may get back on the winning track...

I don't understand why everyone is dropping Taylor for

He isn't a 9 , not his fault he is playing the amount of minutes he is playing there

I thought he will play the 1st 20 , that's fine
Yeah, maybe twenty five, but when Merrin was marched, that for me was the time to bring him on.

It would have prevented the horrible pass to Brooks

I need to watch it again , but Brooks did seem very wide of the ruck as the 1st receiver from 1st thought

Horror pass though

The game has changed a lot , that 20-25 minute mark is the fatigue stage for the props , that is when most clubs head to the interchange

Benji can get stuffed honestly, I'm not taking one of my forwards off the bench to have him on there. All these people saying reynolds won't be fit enough to play and he needs 2-3 weeks to be fit enough. I think he's been ok since round 9 maybe still injured a bit but has been training with the boys since then.

did u not see his one and only appearance for us he was on the field for 10 min and was blowing like a hurricane, but dont let facts get in the way, stick him in and see the damage it does when he leaves holes in the line. give the bloke 2-3 weeks in reggies then throw him in.

I just wanna see Tui at 6 again. Last 20 mins of every game Benji just looks groggy, his passes become below ordinary

15.Alolai
16.Masters - he would destroy teams of the bench in the forwards
17.Twai

so much impact of the bench and i think alolai and masters would destroy teams after they come on with some big runs
i miss having big line breaking forwards on our bench like we had with potter

My question is who has played 5/8 the last month or so. The way i see it the position has been non existent.

Anything would be an improvement.
Its an opinion!

Taylor was abysmal at dh no way in the world i could pick him there again.I am yet to see him go well at 9
I'm yet to see Taylor go well anywhere
Has Lolohea done something I'm unaware of?
Why so many people picking him?
