    Dropped, I think you'll find. No reports he's injured anywhere

    They wouldn't have brought him in to the squad if they thought they had enough cover in the halves. BA must know Smith and Salmon aren't up to it.

    If Brown was injured I think he would have gone for Salmon. I think Brown and Gutherson will do the organizing and Field used as an attacking weapon. I believe this is a good option. Also there is no doubt that there is a rotation going on which also is a smart move.

    I'm guessing we may start with Taka. 25min in then put Jai in. Wait until the big collisions die down

    probably not “poor” just a light weight, so easily targeted.

    fullback isn't exactly where you wanna hide some merkin who cant tackle

    very surprised Salmon didn't get a run given his defensive capabilities

    Plenty of halves have played that weren't great defenders.

    Not sure there's much point in that, Taka is a woeful defender
