    Good point Burgs didn't consider him as a fullback. I liked the way Strachan played there last year as well. Obviously the coaching staff sees things markedly different to us.

    I agree. One of Pasitoa and Donaldson should play 15. Tiatia isn't bad, but he isn't great. You'd love a big 12- if only, Kerevi- but backline stocks look okay. Just missing props and another big lock. Would love the likes of Hoskins, Hockings.

    Surely Pone over at the Rebels is worth a crack. They have Talaki and Tupou contracted as well as Cabous Eloff- holding the talent a bit. If Pone has Wallaby ambitions, he needs the game time.

    He seems to have moderated his style a little through the season, but at first it seemed he wanted to win the match with the try of the year every touch he got, no matter the field position or match situation. To me, that's the mindset of a bench player, not a 60 minute starter.

    So next season could see a 4th skipper in 4 years, an annoying twat become a nice chap, a known dickhead morph into a disciplined hard arse and an almost-pommy earn a Wallaby cap. Sounds like a plan.

    All effort and money needs to go into recruiting front row stocks for next year. We look fine in pretty much every other position, as long as we can retain most of our decent personnel

    Front rowers are definitely a must, a mobile 6 and 8 to help out Tizzano. And definitely wingers that someone else doesn’t have to cover their ass in defence. Sorry Mr Kibirige you’re a great attacker but your defence has let you down.

    Some proven props & hooker would go down very well. I'm sure HQ sees the need way more than us & Hodgo will be on the blower!

    I think Kibirige has been caught out by the pace of Super rugby. Remember when we had Rob Kearney. Class act but played like he was running in treacle. If he's staying Kibirige needs to get his D shored up, he's pretty loose. I get the impression he's been carrying an injury for a large part of the season?
