Is that not dangerous the other way. Him getting used to playing low importance matches and then crumbling if and when he has to play a big game.

As Staly said, he did play some Challenge Cup a,ready and I don’t think it’s a case of “low importance”, more how they are phasing him into the action. I did ask the rugby journalist Alex Shaw whether there was a case to throw him in as Quins did with Marcus Smith - his reply was essentially that if they aren’t, then the club is taking a view as to whether the deep end would be counter-productive.

On a different level, the confluence of RdP going home, AJ potentially unavailable for the 6N even when fit and Rohan coming back means that Sam at 10 allows for Rohan alongside JOC when we get back into the league and those crunch back to back home games against Exeter and Leicester.
