Nof is a tricky one. Ball in hand he’d be the first back I would pick. But his defence has been terrible for years, hopefully it is something he can fix in reserves. I’m glad Ivan has taken the stance he has and dropped him to work on it. How he responds to it will determine when he gets back into the mix for firsts.
No place for him just now. Only Naiqama would be under pressure from yesterday’s performance, but I am 95% that IC won’t drop him just from one bad game.
MWZ and CT were strong, cannot possibly drop them when Nofo was not selected despite being fit.
We are all aware of only letting in about two line breaks on the edges yesterday? Both of them I blame Naiqama, but the wingers mostly made good judgements in defence.
