Here it is – the G&GR writer’s Super Rugby team of the week for round 4. Some very close calls to be made between the Reds and Brumbies this round – toss of a coin in it.
Still looking good at LOOSE HEAD (hear that Robbie?) and angry!
3. Dan Palmer
Please don’t go to France, please don’t go to France…..
4. Scott Fardy
When he wasn’t smashing rucks he was smashing tackles
5. Hugh Pyle
Still rock solid at the top of the lineout and putting in the hard yards
6. Scott Higginbotham
Is it my imagination or is his play tightening up?
7. Liam Gill
Was absolutely everywhere in that match – G&GR Man of the Round
8. Ben Mowen
Could have dominated the Tahs pack on his own
9. Nick Frisbee
Didn’t look at all like a second reserve
10. Matt Toomua
Accomplished and calm, a great team facilitator
11. Digby Ioane
Did his talking on the field (not the pub)
12. Ben Tapuai
The beautiful little tip-toe try he scored shows how he’s come on
13. Anthony Faingaa
Had he been injured? Brought the physicality the Reds missed back
14. Henry Speight
Bustling and physical
15. Jesse Mogg
Is this run of gold ever going to end? Another two tries created.
How’d we do – what would you change?
