    Ryan Lonergan has heaps of potential, but is at least a couple years, maybe more, off displacing Joe. The bigger threat to Joe is Nic White if he returns to the Brumbies as expected, (that is, assuming Cheika who apparently hasn't the time of day for him, leaves the Wallabies' setup at the end of RWC).

    I don't agree with this idea of poor treatment.Nick Phipps played very well in shute shield final which I suspect why gone up in the pecking order. This is about selecting what one feels is best player for the job and fact is Joe Powell has not really shown he is test quality yet. This is just a harsh reality that players will miss out and yes Joe Powell missing out. But is he really a stand out walk up choice for 9 as a replacement. Nope! I reckon Phipps ahead of Powell.

    I might add I reckon other 9's will also overtake Powell next season e.g. Tate McDermott..

    I'm not sure how one decent performance by Phipps in a park footy game can overshadow Powell's consistently better form in higher tiered professional rugby?

    Nah, outside of 2014 Phipps has been a test passenger, and in comparison Powell has had very few test opportunities - this weekend just another example...

    But I think that's all irrelevant anyways - it seems obvious to me that Phipps is being given a test farewell this week along with TPN.

    Anyways, back to the Vikings...
