    I only vaguely knew of her until the brains trust at MAGA dreamed up the Deep State/Swift & Kelsey/Superbowl conspiracy.

    The West reporting Rodda is unlikley to play.

    I suspect Faifua will slip in to the starting team, and an additional back like Bayley Kuenzel to the bench, reverting to a traditional 5/3 split bench

    I was getting a little worried about the front-row stock, but we aren't looking too lean:

    1 Charlie Hancock
    1 Santiago Medrano
    1 or 3 Atu Moli
    3 Marley Pearce - subject to tribunal
    3 Tiaan Tauakipulu
    2 Tom Horton
    2 Ben Funnell

    I wonder if the issue at scrum time is just time training together?

    The issue is at loose head prop.

    1) Marley at his age he should really only be playing the last 15 minutes of each match while learning his trade, yet he is putting in close on sixty minutes every week starting from last year already. Not only is the tribunal an issue but he may have stand down HIA protocols to implemnent as well.

    2) Charlie Hancock, does not yet appear to to at a level for Super rugby, got monstered last year in his one appearance and same again on Saturday.

    Hopefully Moli is fit enough to play and start and play most of the game otherwise our scrum will get monstered again.

    Tighthead with Medrano and Tauakipulu should be okay, Reggie Churchwood not a bad option if we need him.

    So I think what you are saying, reading between the lines, we need a Third Tier...

    so Marley has been cited for using his nose as an assault weapon?

    In the video you could see that his nose was definitely a blunt object

    Gotta feel for Hancock. He came on against Tyrel Lomax, a likely All Black this year. Didn't he have Tim Anstee in behind him at that point? Anstee is 20kg too light to be a lock. He was always going to get pulped. It didn't help that the tight head side also wasn't strong.
