    The Tahs need to turn things around this Friday. The Tahs have been hopeless but the Lions haven't been a whole lot better.

    After an excellent performance by the Waratahs A side, Rob Penney has to throw some caution to the wind and give some of those guys an opportunity.

    The side I would run with:

    1. Robertson
    2. Abel
    3. HJH
    4. Simmons
    5. Tafa
    6. Dempsey
    7. Hooper
    8. Harris
    9. Gordon
    10. Harrison
    11. Nawaqanitawase
    12. Hunt
    13. Foketi
    14. Maddocks
    15. Beale

    16. Fitzpatrick 17. Bell 18. Faulkner 19. Holloway 20. Gamble/Tizzano 21. Short 22. Moeroa 23. Clark/Newsome

    I like it. Time for some change, particularly in the pigs. Haven't seen Tafa at lock before but some of these young guys can't do worse than the incumbents

    Tafa played lock at NRC and for the Tahs A team. Adds go forward and grunt. Hopefully he gets a run and does well as this is a big step up.

    Tafa definitely. Don't think Harris is ready, especially up against a Saffer pack.

    i understand the reason why beale would be picked, but fuck me i'd support penny if he dropped beale to send a message.

    i'd also have the pigs pick up nothing but celibacy and raw steaks this week, whilst also subjecting them to a steady stream of fake saffa accent voicemails each day insulting their mums.

    He definitely needs to lift his game. He's still providing a lot of the attacking spark though.

    He should be on notice though. His play hasn't been good enough.

    You don't want them to cry you masochist!! Narr I hope the Tah's give the Lions a toweling, I want all Australia teams to be strong, shut the kiwi's and saffa's up about how weak we are.

    Waratahs are favourites with the bookies at this stage.

    I've invested a pineapple to ensure my evening at the game is enjoyable or at lesat I walk away with more money than I arrived :D

    On the Lions?

    Yes. Sorry, I thought that was implied from my post.

    If I bet on the Tahs I'm setting myself up for double disappointment at poor odds!

    Lions at $2.40 is very tempting indeed.

    I guess Rob Penney must have missed last week's Waratahs A game.

    He looked good in the “A” matches. Must have been a toss up between him, Lasila and O’Reilly.
