The song of the day is; Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve..
Let's not kid ourselves about our backline.
It is misfiring at best in attack right now. We have these amazing players who can by their own admission "tear anyone up" on their day, but it is just not happening.
Most of their enterprising play is coming in the form of counter attacks and kick returns.
I don't think McCabe is the answer at 12. I would like to see Fainga'a there against the Blacks in Brisbane to see how he goes.
But I suspect we do need JOC (James O'Connor), Barnes or Giteau at 12 to make the backline fire.
I would go with JOC (James O'Connor).
Palu - grade 1 hamstring strain. I guess that means they will likely keep him in NZ?
Mccabe - subluxed shoulder. Did the same in a brumbies game and missed no games. I would say that means shoulder reconstruction in the off season but not sure short term.
Horne - non displaced facial fracture. ?No surgery.
Rumours Taps and Hodgson on standby.
Anyone got any other updates??
