So, is a midfield of O'Reidlin more potent than Henrose?

We are suddenly looking thin at FB. How long for RK? It's not Carbery's best location. What next?

Dardis? Is he still around?
Dave K?

ROL could definitely be worth a look though, he's got the ability.

How 'bout this for a recipe for tries ...11 O' Loughlin, 12, Henshaw, 13 Himself, 14 Adam. 15 Isa (I don't want Joey here because I think his real talent is 10)

They'll catch the fkn restart at least!

His attack is scintilating
His defence is unscintilating?

What a break through season R O'L has had. Possibly overshadowed by the hype surrounding other backs but looks certain to gain his first cap over the Summer. :clap:

Be interesting to see what happens the rest of the season, does he remain out of the 23?

I need to watch the playback but did RO'L cross the line for his first try with Stander and Copeland hanging off him? Superb! :happy clapper:

It might seem a bit harsh (as he did score all our tries today) - but I didn't think he played well. His first try was brilliant. Showed he's a natural finisher with the hickie-esque spin nice determination and awareness to get the ball down and his defense was good today, maybe thanks to Henshaw inside him. But there were a couple of times I thought he lacked the distribution (or maybe it was awareness) to get the ball outside him when there were better options. Added to that, 5 handling errors which is just not good enough.
For my mind he's shown his best performances on the wing, where his finishing ability really shines.

Thought O'Loughlin looked much better with Henshaw being a rock on his inside, he was far less exposed and made his tackles when he had to. First try was a superb finish. Not sure how he will develop into the squad, but a very handy squad player to have, even if he doesn't break into the first choice 23.

Given all the injuries and lack of depth in centre, we could use the depth. I'm still hoping Reid gets an opportunity to play on the wing, he's an excellent attacking threat, but just doesn't have the physicality or defensive skills to hold down the midfield, but would seem to have a lot of the attributes that would suggest he could be a good winger.
