Pat Lam has just been interviewed and reported that big Steve is out for the rest of the season, that's a little bit of a blow, gutted!

I've long said he needs a good break before next season so I'm ok with this.

Iíll leave it until after the Roth match before making my mind up on how comfortable I am with it. I agree though that the rest should do him good.

He is brilliant and a class apart but we are lucky that back row is one area where we have depth.

His knee was heavily strapped before he started the game on Sunday

The prolonged rest and a good pre season is probably a blessing in disguise. We will need him performing from day 1 next season.

If my memory serves me correctly it was heavily strapped for the barbarians match in Nov, so I don't think it's a new problem.

As long as he recovers, as had been said above - the rest will be good for him.

Marvelous player.

I also get the strong feeling Luatua's been struggling with his knee for a good while. As said above, he's been heavily strapped up since joining us, and has been limping around a fair bit at times. Hopefully with a bit of recovery & rest he'll be back firing for the start of next season, along with Vui.

Obviously very, very difficult circumstances, but what with the really bad news on Joe Batley's illness, it looks like we're struggling for 2nd rowers at a very critical point of the season. Maybe Crane will get a run there? Maybe we'll even see the big Georgian? Will PL call one of his mates for reinforcements? Will we regret letting Touhy go? All part of the roller coaster.

Will we go up? It's ours to lose, but this club does like to do things the hard way.

I think the team have enough in the gas tank to finish the job. Luatua came to us after a long slog in Super Rugby and think the rest will do him good so that he is on top form for next season.
