Talking of Mat Sandell being a small prop, at 102kg he will be packing against either Sio (115kg) or Alalatoa (125kg). If he can hold up his side of the scrum, he has seriouis class!
Just going on game stats winning teams away without their playmaker are low... Through in new coach new frontrow and without the wild yappie it looks the Gods have already acted... But certainly the Tahs still have talent on the field..Be wary of the mocker Gods my friend...
How does Ryan come back on ? You guys planning a yellow card to a front rower or a sneaky blood capsule?I suspect they may do a switcheroo:
Start Ryan and Taiavo
Sub Ryan at 45 for Tilse
Sub Taiavo for Ryan coming back on at 65
Sub Tilse for Sandell at 75 to give the young-un a taste.
