Looks like Chiefs gone with Gus at 6 again. Not sure about that but I think it’s more fluid with Jacobson.

DMAC at 10.

More to come on teams.

Richard K playing against the Chiefs is a nice side story - especially if Liam gets on the pitch.

Luke Jacobson could be an option at 6. I wouldn't complain if Blackadder got a shot. He is a bit of a bosh merchant but a tireless grafter. Does he have what it takes to be a test player? Would a mix of Savea, Sotutu and Blackadder be a good balance? Would they compliment each other? Or would Black...

I heard what AC heard.

On Havilli If he goes in at 12 I think ALB is bench. And that a speedy centre would be better. Which probably means Reiko.

If ALB bench then prob - Smith / RMo / Havilli / Reiko / 2 Saders wings - Bridge and Reece (or Jordan) / Jordie

Bench would be Weber / ALB / DMAC

Not a neutral but in terms of the ABs I’d love to see: Saders - really strong performance from Taylor - he was so good earlier in the season and whilst just off that he’s played very well. Havilli at 12 - to read add himself to the mix for selection. Been one of the ‘finds’ of the year. Jordan - to ...
