Anyone know much about freebairn? And what’s everyone’s thoughts on pole at lock? Surprised me too see him starting there (if he ends up starting there)

Great to see Pole get a starting role

Congrats Tom Freebairn on your debut

Don’t overthink jersey's though, Joffa will revert back to playing the lock/link role with Pole in the prop rotation. Well deserved start for Fonua who is averaging 102m from 10 runs in 36 mins through 5 games.

Am I right in saying the centres have swapped sides from last week?

Those are great stats. There were games where our named experienced forwards weren’t cracking 100 in a full game.

That has to be the worst bench I’ve seen in a long time, yuck! Seriously give the young guys a shot not these old hacks

Pumped to see Pole start this week! Hopefully a sign he might get a few more minutes too.
As much as I want to see a Tumeth debut, congrats to Freebairn. Any time a new player wears the Tigers jersey for a first time is exciting! Not a flashy player, just does his job and works hard. Lets get the win boys!

Can you give us an example where someone performed and Madge dropped them?
Maybe not immediate droppings. Jake Simpkin on debut made 58 tackles and looked good out of dummy half. Was out of the team not long after that. Stefano was in and out of reserve grade at times last year.

I don't really get Pole at 13, given its not how we want our 13 role to be going forward.

Love him as a player so far but.
Surprised me too. Might rotate with Joffa during the game.
