Maybe we should have started this team last week?
Scott Barrett and TJ Perenara look to have paid for their performances last week.
Exactly they should have started this team last week. The 2 games against the pumas are ideal for rotation and experience building.
They have also given the impression that this is the A team even though they were saying they don’t have one after the loss to the wallabies
I am still a fan of trying out combinations against a stronger team in a game that doesn't really matter. What do you learn in a hiding (with apologies to Argies fans )?
So long as they don't change 2/3 of the team. What do they learn from that, the B team isn't as good as the A team, but what about the individual players - which ones are capable of playing in the A team when they are all part of a losing effort.
It's simple science, you change just 1 variable at a time. If, for example, you want to see if Laumape might be a better option than Goodhue, then put him outside Smith & Mo'unga and give him the damn ball.
The AB selectors have form for doing this - making wholesale changes and not just a couple at a time - and it pisses me off; just seems like they aren't that bright.
