Not really a surprise tbh.
I presume Ruddock will be on the bench if SOB doesn't make it.


Jordi Murphy more likely IMO.

I heard RR was the extra forward with the squad so I presume he'll bench.

Which brings up an interesting question. I wonder does Jordi Murphy feel his move was worthwhile for him from an International point-of-view. He seems to be further from a match day squad then ever

He was on the bench against the All Blacks, wasn't he? Although to be fair that only happened because Leavy pulled out with an injury. I'd always have him in contention for the 20 shirt because of his ability to cover all three positions.

Yep. i'd have him on the bench even when everyone was fit as he offers so much across the entire backrow. However we had two major backrow injuries and he didn't make it and if even if SOB hadn't started it looks like he still wouldn't have got in to today's 23. On the face of it he looks to be well down the queue.

I suppose when SOB is fit he offers the same versatility, so maybe Joe doesn't think he needs him? But he really seems well down the queue at the moment. Joe always seemed like a fan earlier on as well but barring significant injuries he seems fairly far away from the plane to Japan. It's interesting and does question the general wisdom regarding players moving for game time.
