Came on and played lock. Defended in the middle.
In attack, he roved a bit. On good ball sets the team was set up a bit like a late 90’s / early 2000’s team. Five-eighth as the link man on the left, lock as the link man on the right, halfback in the middle and floating either side. They weren’t fixed in place (e.g. Moylan still popped up on the right for Nikora’s try) but that was the gist of it.
I’m a big fan of this style of play under the new rules. Starting lock is a 3rd prop, but bring on a player in this role at some stage.
This is why I like the MciInnes singing, has some ball playing ability, but still strong in defence.
I really liked the finals game against Canberra last year with Talaki starting at lock.
Depending on the forward recruitment.
Would like to see Toby as prop and Talaki punch out 20 minutes at lock before bringing McInnes on.
