Re: Your centre selection

If anyone was listening to the BT commentory, Austin Healey was spot on when he said that losing MUlchrone and Coman, who are our two defensive lynchpins, to injuries is the difference to having a good defence and our present predicament.

Tiks is a winger and doesnt create the space that a fully fledged centre should produce for his winger. His tackling is brutal only when the opposition player has passed the ball ie Marcus Smith at Twickenham and a couple of times yesterday. When they run at him he is normally a turnstile. Due to injuries Kennedy is having to play him out of postion, but I have said since the end of last season that we were short on numbers for out and out centres and so it is proving.
I would play Hearn at outside centre at the moment but hopefully Fowlie can get some game time during the European phase and prove he can step up to start in the Premiership.
