agree - I think the forwards are set except Mauglouis should be in for Williams

we win two games with him in. saying something... joking. he didn't' determine the final outcome but gee wiz he provides some punch off the bench. was impressive. need to keep it going.

Thought Hunt did well enough to keep the 17

Agree but I think we could find a more effective use of the jersey
BHU in particular lost a lot of minutes

If Hunts minutes spread around a bit more could help keep the forwards fresh though

Great game from Talaki. Very impressed with him against the Dogs.

Forwards went really well , him in particular .
Would of been in my top 3 on the day
Woods , Toby and him .
Hunt went great too
Nikora is my disappoint and perhaps due to high workload , Wades defence

I’d be even tempted to start this fella if Wade moves to lock. Hopefully it wouldn’t dampen his impact against tired opposition though.

Plays with enough aggro I think he'd be okay
Don't think he'd play 80 though is the issue

With four forwards on the bench, all capable of longer minutes might take some time to get the right rotation going. Also might find each week different depending on how the game is going.

Did feel Uele didn't get aslong as he should but can't fault Talakai.

I'd be inclined to maybe rotate the backrowers a bit, perhaps give Nikora or Wade a rest, or as mentioned move Wade to the middle and Talakai to the edge.

I don't mind some forwards getting fewer minutes if it's sending the message that you've got to earn them.
We've got a pretty fair rotation now, with bigger minutes in most of them. I'm expecting these guys to be playing like their first grade lives are on the line, because they genuinely are.

Did we figure out if we anyone can edit this thread so his name is spelt correctly?
Or make a new one and merge this with it?

Has played well enough to earn his name being spelt correctly
