Surely not… should get the boys fired up less the pressure?
There are some good packs in that list. They also considered the hooker position and didn’t mention the bench. Just say Chee-Kam gets the spot over Luciano that puts Luciano on the bench which could happen. Plus we have a predicted hooker that might not even play for us and who has hardly played first grade.
I reckon it’s a fair grade on that criteria. I also think our pack has the ability to roll over all of the packs that were listed if they play to their potential. Hooker though is a problem position.
