    Western Force 2022

    Yes I hope and dream they will to, but hopes and dreams they are. There are posts in this forum that say the position and depth IS now stronger then it was. I don't see evidence of that. I can only hope that it WILL be. 100% My comment is in response to those who are saying that the squad IS...

    Western Force 2022

    I still don't think that there is an ounce of evidence to suggest Kuenzle and Tapine are improvements on Taefu and Kuridrani. Nothing they have done can suggest that. Literally living on hopes and dreams until we actually see it.

    Western Force 2022

    Force need Pulu and Mataele firing because the centres have lost some firepower. Kahui is a good communicator but a Godwin/kahui combination is solid but not dynamic. Hopefully they can be the ship steerers and get Pulu and Mataele unleashed.

    3 seasons (2 + 1 in their favour, not his)

    Reds 2022

    We had one but RA and Reds couldn't afford to keep him. So now 2 of our best hookers are in france.

    Western Force 2022

    apart from Wing, I would propose there is not a single position in the squad seems stronger then it was last season. I would offer several units are weaker (eg. centres)

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    Wilson is the right size - just needs to swap a bit of flab to muscle.

    Skelton needs 30min and they MUST keep it in tighter for longer. Latu, Tupou, Skelton, Leota, Valetini, Samu. Let's USE that size and not pass the ball away from it too soon.

    Gill is in Japan. Colby Faingaa has been training with the squad already as the specialist 7 backup.

    Definitely saw Skelton run at least once, doesnt help when they keep sending it wide early.

    Wallabies 2021

    Or Faingaa if they want a specialist

    England v Australia - Twickenham, 14 Nov, 4:30am AEDT

    We lost our 2 tightheads, england lost their 2 looseheads. Still disadvantaged as they kept their tightheads and we had to move our best loosehead.

    Tuilagi on the wing - Easy steamroller BUT perhaps an opportunity to catch him wrong footed or in poor position in the backfield. HOWEVER I have doubts we can take advantage of that.

    England v Australia - Twickenham, 14 Nov, 4:30am AEDT

    Not sure we can say Kellaway is the future at 15. Banks is and will continue to be a top option 15. Then Hodge will probably be 15 at the Rebels with Kellaway on the wing. It's nice he CAN play FB, but I think he is about as fullback as Drew Mitchell, Luke Morohan, Rod Davies, Lachie Turner...

    England v Australia - Twickenham, 14 Nov, 4:30am AEDT

    Yep - shocker. I've said in other posts I think the game plan/execution was massively flawed. No centre field momentum in the tactics so big boys like leota, thor, skelton and valetini were invisibile. But Valetinis individual stats on Saturday has nothing to do with why Wilson wasn't selected...

    England v Australia - Twickenham, 14 Nov, 4:30am AEDT

    Nothing about their game plan utilised the muscle power of leota, arnold, valetini, tupou, skelton. They never tried to develop momentum of the middle, they went wide too early and it didn't pay.

    He wasn't picked because at test level he WASN'T getting go forward. which is correct.
