Though at times tonight we were too,short....made mr Philips look like Simon Maddn. Wouldn't rush Dave back but need to look at the opposition
That’s because we had Pickett in the ruck and he dragged him deep into our back 50. The ruck should have been rotated between Chol and CCJ.

Agree. Said it to my bubble buddy. But with some teams it is not just the ruck talls we need to match up on.

Prestia will play.

You see him chat to McGrath after the siren and McGrath says “You alright?”
Prestia clearly says “Yeah, was just….” (Something along the lines of “giving Daniel a run.”

McGrath gave him a rye smile suggesting all the players know the sub is used to keep players safe.

That’s my prediction anyway.

Miller in is my 2c - fast, tall, great kick. Time to get serious about defensive succession planning. Grimes is not on this year and more tall defensive cover is required. I thought short really off tonight and houli has lost a lot of pace. I’d like to se mansell back.
None of this resolves ruck issues. Chol can’t ruck a full game and pulling cj out of the forward line/using Pickett is not working.

Didnt think Lambert would be ready for at least another 2 weeks.

Prestia is doubtful, was subbed as a precaution only due to hammy tightness.

As massive as he is to us, wouldn’t risk Prestia if there is any tightness , I dont Like dropping kids after one poor game, however I simply prefer Dow then RCD so I’d make that change .

How is DTLD travelling ? And does he walk back in against a big man depleted Eagles forward line ?

if the Lambogini is ready to come out of the garage , he plays .

Aarts and George played very well last night, no room for Daniel there, only option for him would be to replace Caddy on the wing

Changes might depend on the likely make up of the Eagles team.
how about:

In: Mansell, Lambert
Out: Prestia (injured), RCD

Mansell to the backline and Baker to the middle.

If Lambert doesn’t get up then bring in Dow. We need to keep improving our run and spread from the contest.

I’d like to see Baker in the middle too. Would prefer brining in a faster backline moving forward.
