    It'll be interesting to see if Kyle carries his form from 13 into 12 this week

    I'm also keen to see if Pulu can remain fit for 80 minutes

    Tough on Taefu as usual. Good to see Macgregor back on the bench - I reckon we've looked best with him at 15 this year.
    I think we should have the advantage in the forwards, and their backline will be somewhat stunted with Leger at 10. It's bloody dangerous outside of 10 though, so our backs will need to have a good game defensively.

    Force by 8.

    I reckon the only reason Jack has been given the nod over Strahan is his ability to cover both 10 and 15. It appears that Strahan has the ascendancy if you look at fullback alone.

    (based upon recent selections)

    Good to see the coaches with quite a few selection dilemmas. Tough on Taefu. Maybe an injury? Maybe to restrict the Canes on the edges early. Kahui and Godwin have defended well together, even if Kyle and Henry get over the gain line more effectively. I like the pack. Get some set piece parity (or better) early and drag them into a scrap.

    Yeah you mention defense and I can see a real point to that. The Canes have won their games by scoring bunches of points against teams who can't keep up but also have pretty leaky defenses.

    We came within a sniff of beating the Chiefs who are similar (but probably better defensively) so frustrating them into mistakes by defending well could be the tactic.

    Taefu isn’t injured. I reckon it must be personal. Just can’t see what else the bloke needs to do.

    Apologies if this has been asked before. Is there any pubs that show super rugby? Given the early kick off probably easier to find somewhere near work (Bentley) to watch. Might message Varsity.

    Unsure where you live but Tompkins Park will also be open and the game will be on the big screen.
