Just on Matterson. Compare his reaction to smacking a bloke in the head to Harawira-Naera's. Speaks volumes of his character.
Yep. And as someone else pointed out, Catterson has promoted himself as a crusader when it comes to concussion & how it's managed. Then recklessly shoulders a fellow player in the head.

I saw the same thing.
CHN was visibly upset he performed that tackle and apologised immediately and earnestly.
Matterson ran back into his line gesturing to team mates that he got him in the head and ignored the player who was severely knocked out and lying on the ground.
Two poor tackles performed by a decent bloke and a feral piece of garbage.

That is an interesting take. The problem I have with it is that you have to win the forward battle. I can see Hastings getting run over the top off and I don't think he is the guy to hit it up the middle.
Weight and Height Fact Check:

Conner Watson - Ball Playing/ Creative/Running Lock Forward - Height 5 Foot 8 / Weight 89kg
Jackson Hastings - Currently playing in halves/Fullback - Height 6 Foot / Weight 95kg

We have lacked or had no creativity in our pack all year. Especially in front of the line. Hastings is big enough and can handle playing lock. He is aggressive and tough. I will be stunned if he doesn't start at lock at the start of the season.

Victor Radley wouldnt even be that big would he?. ...could even throw Wayne Pierce and Kevin Hardwick in for comparison

I can't see it working. Watson is good coming on as an interchange player and busting them up the middle. He is pretty quick and catches players out when they are tiring. Some players like Radley are really tough and can hit hard. I haven't seen Hastings do that.

I'm cool with Hastings working out at lock though. Winning games to me is all that counts.
