Honestly, I don't know how you drop Talakai after that performance.
I agree, I absolutely love Wilton but Sifa took the opportunity with both hands tonight. It’s his jersey to lose now and Teig will have to force his way back in. Unless Fitz still sees more value in Sifa as a bench middle, which is fine as well.

Teig will slot straight back in once fit, let's be real

Bench is a waste and Fitz ain't gunna send Teig to cup or give him the Mozza treatment

Fitz had enough confidence in Teig to give him the captaincy a week ago

Maybe Sifa can go back to bench/middle but just simply be given more minutes, at some point his defense will be a problem again on the edges.
Just cause he a benchy don't mean he cant run a bit wider time to time

I hope you’re wrong because that performance from Talakai tonight at second row is exactly what we need more of in the big games

I could see a world where Sifa starts and Teig comes on for him to have a stint on the sideline and then comes back on in the middle somewhere.
Or the other way round where Teig starts and Sifa comes off the bench into the middle, then after a bit Teig gets a rest and Sifa moves onto the edge.

This way we can get more minutes into him in both positions.

I'm not sure mate if Teig would be effective off the bench. Not with all the big boppers we have. I think he's either playing 80 or missing out.

Jessie will be pushing for a bench spot too in the next few weeks.

It's a good sign for the club with so many players pushing for spots where if you miss a few weeks for whatever reason you may find it hard to slip straight back in.

Could def see Sifa hold next week and Teig return after bye
I think that’s a guarantee, same for Uele. They’ll rest him that extra week with the bye

I wouldn’t be against resting Tommy and giving JC a game against the Dolphins. Gives Tommy a two week break and think we need to remind ourselves he’s only played 30 games. Rather him not burn out and feels like a good opportunity.

JC might need more games, so If not this bye then next perhaps

Seriously, it will be another pleasant selection headache for Fitz when Tieg returns. We’ve pretty much got 3 80 minute backrowers so who do you drop to the bench. Ridiculous to say but maybe Brit will be the one under the most pressure.

I‘ve heard others say put Sifa back to centre for Iro but I don’t think that’s the way to go either.

Hard to say what Fitz will do. I think when he’s fit he may bring him back through the bench but after that I think it will be Sifa back to the bench. If he does do this though, he’s got to get more minutes.

Wilton can bring impact off the bench, has speed, is mobile, can put on hits, plays with intensity, just give him work in the middle to speed up the ruck, we dont need a bench of all big boppers, he can cover second row and centre also if needed.
