Well having had time to digest the left field team picked yesterday I have come to the conclusion that Barrett is going to try and run the dogs ragged. We have probably the smallest pack (including bench) that I can recall us fielding for a long time and having Api, Parcell, Leary, Brown and Green there and only 3 props, 2 very mobile, can only mean we area going for speed and exploitation of the reduced interchange early in the season. Mateo is another one who isn't the quickest backrower but does create a lot of second phase play as does Taupau. Lussick is the only traditional prop in the team (both Myles and Jake could easily play backrow) 3 question I have: 1. Will this approach work? 2. Is this a one strategy fits all or are we likely to see the side picked based on the opposition 3. Are we starting fitter than other teams but will run out of legs later in the season?
