Walker may still be injured. Has there been an update?
I can see Visser being selected this week. Whether it's Morris, Swiel or Walker at fullback, we have a range of options. Walker at fullback wouldn't overly worry me - he'd be an incredible strike runner to return kicks, and his defence seems to have improved of late.

Apart from failing to stop their smallest player for the first try on Saturday and injuring himself in the process.........

He's still only picked for his attack in spite of his poor defence. I'd rather Swiel at 15.

That's selective. Still, at least we won't have a fullback who was stepped by a prop.

To suggest it was selective would be to say Charlie's defence is normally excellent. It isn't.

Because of course I said it was excellent... in no post whatsoever. I did however say it was greatly improved, although the fact that he missed a tackle seems to be rather damning in your eyes. Maybe he should retire?

But what about Mike Brown not tackling a prop, eh? Best offload him and get someone who never misses a tackle. Such as... erm... let me think... such as, no player who ever played the game?

Brown's defence is normally excellent, so you can allow him the odd mistake. And he wasn't 'stepped'. He simply missed the tackle. He was 'stepped' earlier in the game by Veianu, but I'd say that was more about the Tigers player's amazing footwork.

Charlie's is not, so even if it has improved, it's still not good enough. To suggest a failed tackle that led to a try is 'subjective' is misleading as it suggests the trend is that it is normally the opposite of that instance. It is not.
