Considering our other options, all McInerney woulda needed to do to jump to the front of the queue was hit three throws in a row.
I wonder how close the brothers are…kinda weird otherwise as Louis obviously closer to England or wallabies cap then his younger brotherBesides his fathers legendary status, I think his brother moving to Australia to play for the Reds is fair indication that there is some Aussie passion in the bloodline.
well he’ll be throwing against one of the shorter packs going around so he’ll have an opportunity there.
Lonergan got left at home. I guess with BPA going offshore we need to work out which hookers we have based in Australia that can play against the All Blacks and Springboks. I’d be going Fainga, Kaituu and Uelese as well, Lonergan it is not, so I don’t mind seeing what McInerney has to offer in this game.I’d guess that the Brumbies are more systematically coached than the Reds and respond a little better to the national systems. Hooker still an odd one that McInerney even gets a mention. He would have to around 6-8th choice in Oz at best. He has hardly played this year. Rennie is looking for something very particular in his hooker but I doubt he will find it here.
Uelese has been better than all but BPA and FF in his last test only.
Latu will be a step up and I’d guess that we will not see the two back up Brumby hookers again on tour unless there is an injury or suspension. I’d hate to roll either one out against the Poms or Wales.
Well Wright has been picked because of the expected speed of the game.Keen to see Perese get a go, just don't know when. Will Perese be playing 12 or 13? Kerevi will play 12 all games I hope after Japan. Ikitau doesn't deserve to lose his spot either and I don't think we can carry Perese on the bench.

Must be a difficult tightrope for Rennie to walk given that he has already selected 4 other players who didn't commit to Australia.
