Otto's defence is shocking, and Jones' is suspect, which makes me think Eves is having to concentrate on defence more than he ideally would.
Watkins is OK defensively, if Otto's tackling is good enough for him to start, then so should Watkins.
Slater showed the importance of having pace in the side.
But I agree it's tough to find room for Watkins, Otto, Eves, Tovey and Helu in their proper positions, and the trend of having SH and FH cover only on the bench doesnt help.
VDG deserves more time, but again, at the expense of who? Grieves is captain and we really need a ball carrier in the pack (and in the absence of Sambu, that's Montague).
Tough choices for Middleton, but pretty important ones. I reckon we're favourites for promotion currently, but not by much and mostly because of our pack. I wouldnt want to be chasing a 3 score deficit in the semi or final.
