Thought Dixon played well today.

Big fan of Taylor, but did his frustration come out today when they were on the back foot... feels like he sometimes gets on the wrong side of the ref.

Couldn't go past Mo'unga for Player of the week in my mind... controlled the game when needed.

Dillon Hunt had a blinder today. Parkinson was impressive again too. Can’t argue with that team except I’d have Aaron Smith over TJ - he was the catalyst for the clan’s first half ascendancy

I certainly would have PPP in front of Scrafton, and probably Hunt in place of Kirifi, but not much in that 7 race.

Didn’t see the game, but didn’t Smith make some costly decisions?

Yes towards the end but still not outweighed by the positive impact for his team. I'd have Snecky in there as 9.

Smith's first half was great

His second half was terrible

If anything Umaga-Jensen had a quieter game than his previous 2. It's been a bit of a break-out year for him getting and keeping the 13 shirt in the Canes. There's pace and power in his game that'll have Rieko looking over his shoulder in his attempt to move in one for an AB spot.

Think you got it pretty smack on AC. I think I would of had Scrafton marginally in front of PPP too, mainly because PPP didn't last the full 80 and that was probably only thing between them. By geez Frizzell is starting to look so much like the Kaino type 6 we have been waiting for, always been a fan, but is just getting better. Codie is till THE 2 playing the game today, I would argue best 2 I seen in last while from anywhere. Add that Josh Ioane played a blinder, and if Richie hadn't of been his usual high standard would of filled the 10 jersey in this team well. We not too bad off for backs in NZ at moment.
