    I get the feeling this will happen too. But it leaves the question, which loose forward misses out on the 23?

    you're probably right but i hope your wrong, kaino's game has definitely been dropping in my opinion and we have two other guys on the up, i would very much prefer they got as much experience between now and the next world cup as possible

    Again, I agree. For me Kaino is still the man at 6, though Squire has been very impressive and is very close to overtaking him. During Super Rugby Kaino was still a beast and he has hardly ever let us down in black. Also, Shag is loyal so I don't see him leaving Kaino in the cold.
    So I guess that means we're putting Ardie on the bench and leaving Fifita out?

    There's a chance that Tuipulotu is left out of the 23 instead of Fifita.

    I did think about that but highly doubt it because Hansen has said he doesn't consider Fifita a lock at all at test level plus they'll be wanting to get big Patty in there. Is definitely an option though...

    strong AB's team, think might get a little loose late in the game, have Perenara and DMac played as a combo?

    not surprised about Todd, heard it through the grapevine he was in last week

    surprised about Ioane thou, he's well out off the selectors minds, must not be listening to advice about what he needs to be doing for the black jersery

    the boy Papalii is really good, big kid, intelligent, good attitude, future star

    Ben Lam can probably feel a little disappointed, tailed off towards the end of super rugby tho and Georgey Bridge is bloody awesome
