Only returned back to training this week from what I hear. But I think Reg is right, we'll likely see him soon enough (next week?).

I wonder who misses out when CFS returns from injury, if he does return for NRC.. ?

Perese too. If he’s coming back.

9 Tuttle
10 Stewart
11 Petaia
12 Paia’aua
13 CFS
14 Perese
15 Daugunu

In saying that CFS and Izzy may take some time to recover to full fitness.


Mark Loane (55)
I wonder if they’ll be tempted to leave Petaia at 13. It seems his natural position.


Cyril Towers (30)
I think if everyone's fit and firing it's something like 9. Tuttle 10 Stewart 11. CFS 12. Paia'aua 13. Izzy Perese 14. Daugunu 15. Petaia


Jimmy Flynn (14)
I don't think so at the top level but he starred there for BSHS. Pretty sure 13 and 15 are his preferred spots

J Petaia:

  1. Played 8 games on the wing for BSHS (GPS champs 2016)
  2. played 1 game @wing and 3 games @center for combined states(finished 3rd @ Nationals)
  3. Played 1 game @Wing for Australian Barbarians vs Tonga
  1. Played 7 games @ #15 for BSHS
  2. Played 4 games @ #13 for Qld 1(fin 3rd)
  3. Played 3 games @ #13 for Aust Schoolboys
  1. 9 games on the wing for REDS
  2. 2 games @ 13 for REDS
  3. 2 games @13 for QLD Country (NRC). . .tbc
I think the kid should be left on the wing at least for 2019 super rugby to grow his game and ensure he becomes the best in it. He has explosive speed, size and athleticism to take advantage of one on one contests esp with cross kicks . Playing #13 is such a huge responsibility defensively and I think it may be too much for JP, though hes not doing too bad atm. Let him master the wing and maybe fullback positions first.

Could this have something to do with his Stockman commitments? Not sure. He should be playing. I've heard that Shea Lalagavesi is in line for Barbarians selection so hopefully the same goes for Finn

I can find nothing published. Any news on Shea & Finn with U19 Barbarian selection?

Does anyone know how much the ARU pumps into the NRC?

not exactly. Not much by all reports.

Fox cover a lot of costs with teams themselves covering their way.
World Rugby funding a lot of the Fiji costs

Sam Wallis is a go-er!

Yeah he's been outstanding all season for uni. He's played 8 all year but he is really a 7. To be honest though he reminds me of Michael Gunn at the same age, all speed and ball tearing workrate but you have to wonder whether he has the elite skill level or grunt to step up to Super Rugby (hopefully he proves me wrong).
