Mckinnon was purchased with his rubber band hamstrings - the Tigers knew exactly what they were getting with him.

Sorry, back on track - So Lovett is a cert for the back row then? with Halatau to centre?

I hope he has his skates on if he's facing up with Roberts - and in turn I hope K-Naiqama is on that side to help in defense - as that kid can RUN.

Will Lovett walk straight into the starting side? I thought the fact Santi was on the bench would mean he's ahead of Lovett and therefore he'd be in front of him in regards to starting.

They could both be on the bench and Tapau starts at Lock?

That would not suck at all.

Surprised Hoeter didn't get a start in the backs.

Lawrence: "I'm the fittest I've ever been".

That didn't last long.

If you want to replace like for like

Then a second rower should replace Rowdy (Didn't half the peeps on here think Rowdy is a second rower?

Seriously - what is wrong with Kevin moving to centre and bringing Hoeter onto the wing? Less weakening of the team IMO. Halatau is well past playing in the backs.

Disappointing that come round 1 we have to run with a backrower in the centres.
Highlights the absolute lack of depth we have in our squad for decent outside backs. Tonight's game just got that little but harder.

That is all your doing covering , why not name a specialist Centre and have Lawrence as 18th Man .

Silly to me .
Best to take someone who can cover multiple positions. Maybe there are others with niggles

I'm sure JT knows what he is doing. Lovett must have impressed in the pre season.

Congratulations to Lovett, he has worked very hard and jumped the cue!

Shame this will be over shadowed by, Lawrence posts.

If Lovett is coming into the 17 for Lawrence he will be playing centre. JT has earmarked him as a back up centre by playing him there in the nines and in a trial. While Halatau has spent zero time there in the pre season. Guarantee it will Be a direct swap.

Sila on wing, Naquima moves to centre, Lovett to start in forwards and Lawrence to bench.

Let me get this straight. We haven't even kicked off in our first match, and we may have already run out of outside backs. Am I reading that right?

Another rumour. From a "girlfriend".

Will people ever learn?
