So our next test is 28 August v the Boks in Pretoria I think, with another one the week after in the Bloe! What changes to the squad at least? I think Maafu should be cut, but after Deans proclaimed him as "belonging at this level" after the Bok test in Briso, I can't see it happening. Like others, I think Richard Brown has had his time. But who to bring in? Sekope Kepu, Jeremy Tilse, Laurie Weeks and Greg Holmes all should be seriously considered. McCalman and Higgers should tour still. Higgers should spend the next fortnight just getting super fit. I'd love to see Hynes back pdq. Cooper is obviously back. Is there a point in taking Barnes? How about Shepherd? Shep might be handy in the Republic in fact. I guess Lachie Turner may be considered. His pace and greater assuridity in defence is a plus. Probably a better option than JOC at 14 to be honest. I wonder if Matty Toomua would be considered? gees, I wonder if Richard Kingi might even be an option even though he's not playing 9 at the moment..
