The Ghost of Raelene

Andrew Slack (58)

Always going to lose a few with the a few signing. Strachans card was probably marked when Donaldson signed.

Loosing both Mataele's, Kibirige, Tapine, Hegarty, Strachan, Makara in one go is not exactly ideal. They weren't all up to this level but that's almost every outside back from this years squad. With Pulu and Ala still unsigned for next year Tiatia could end up being the only one to carry over.

Really like the squad mix for the 2nd game against the Cheetahs on Saturday.
Would expect some improvements from the learnings from last week.

Fantastic first 30 minutes but then seemed to lose their way after the YC to Sam Spinks.
Cheetahs came back well.
Looking forward to the Perth games.
Really appreciating Stan's coverage while travelling (VPN makes it possible).
