I don't see how. I think it will be faught out between him and Digby with the incumbant having the upper hand. With the kicking duties, JOC (James O'Connor) has a mortgage on the other wing.
Drew Mitchell update.
@drew_mitchell We hope you miss the World Cup, you tit.
Well in this case, i hope your dreams DONT come true.
This was my main quandary when I started this thread - a fully fit mitchell, ioane and oconnor all command a place in the side. All offer more than AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) or McCabe, albeit in different positions. So given that Mitchell is likely to be fit in time for the RWC surely now (or at least next game v a full strength SAF at home) is the time to try O'Connor at 12.
agree, if all fit the bench looks fantastic.
think alot will depend on how the bledisloe goes, especially with digby defending quades channel, the solution may be to bring berrick in so there is less shifting to cover.
but all in all, hopefully everyone gets fit soon, we dont have the depth to have anyone out of contention.
swapping wing to centre is ridic for mine to. I have a feeling there is a bigger plan at work which is why i susspect Barnes is coming back in.
