Cheers mate.

Was in my Super rugby fantasy team till I read he might be benched.

Wish we had snapped up Shileds!

Like I've said in another thread backrow is a funny one as Gibo and Tei have been 2 of our best players, but in all likeliness one of them would have too make way.

For me, Tei and Gibbo struggle to clear rucks when there is a big dude over the ball.

Tei = 100KG
Brussow = 100kg
Gibbo = 105KG
Ludlam = 98 KG
Wood = 108kg

Wasps.

Haskell = 120KG
Young = 110KG
Hughes = 124KG

Cheifs

Don Armand = 115KG
Dave Ewers = 125kg
Simmonds = 103kg

Cheifs are over 40 Kilo's heavier across the back-row, Wasps over 50 Kilo's

For me we are just too lightweight around the breakdown, then you factor in that our props are quite lightweight, as is super Mikey, we are going to struggle to get quick ball and are going to get turned a lot. We simply get out muscled.

Ball carrying also suffers, we find it hard to make hard yards.

IMHO we need more muscle.

Dixon is a cracking player. He absolutely bossed it in the u20s world cup a few years back. I've been following him ever since.

...and Eadie, 102kg according to his Profile. Who was supposedly our new 8. Are we writing him off?

Cannot understand why eadie hasnít had more game time as heís been fit now for weeks and Harrison having to play 8 continuously with little time off. Seems to be another player brought in with the potential but not used for some reason

But my point was if not, you have to include him in the squad, or pay him to go and comes out of the salary cap

Sure, hopefully someone can enlighten us

I just think we have better younger alternatives, who are probably cheaper

been a very good servant of course
