Cheers Burger - I'm not banging the drum for Tindall, I just pointed out that I can see some of the logic.
Captain for next year will be interesting - I'd imagine it is between Dec and Evans. Alex is still quite young and he'll have international commitments.
The Eejit has got it pretty well spot on.
For me there are now three key issues:
- Tighthead. Although we've some depth with Leo, Ion, and Aulika, I believe that we are still some way short of what's needed. I appreciate that good and affordable 3s are like hen's teeth
- No 8. Dead right about Huf. He's a fantastic player, but just am not convinced that he is capable of keeping away from the citing officer. Another trip to Blackett would probably result in them throwing away the key
- Leadership. Think that this has been lacking without Casey and Hodgson on the field. Corbs can't be captain as he'll miss half the season, so Evans and O'Leary have to step up. Think Skivington is a top signing
As ever think that first choice 1-15 can live with most. It's when injuries and suspensions kick in that the dozen or so really experienced leavers will begin to hurt
I'd take a punt on making Skivington captain.
Top post OC T/h 8 & lock/6 priorities then a 10/15 who can place kick.
