A lot depends on how much we're paying and how selfless he's willing to be. He can potentially add a lot to the squad in terms of helping the younger lads, leading training standards and covering the whole back row - however surely a player whose stated intention is making the RWC squad needs to be starting games?

That leads me to believe there aren't a lot of options out there for available 8's so he's helping out Eadie in that position or covering 7 so that T can play 8 again. Almost certainly doesn't displace Gibson as he's needed from a line out position even if you leave his excellent form and all round contribution aside. So if Wood is fit and firing then he and Gibson are competing for 6, then T, Brussow and Ludlam compete for 7 and Eadie and Hask compete for 8 but noting that a few can cover each other and potentially give Boyd some options. The Gibson and Wood combo never seemed to go well but that gives us a great lineout, playing T, Eadie and Hask together gives a lot of stopping power and graft etc..
