    My guess is:
    4 - Props - rotate 2 each half
    2 - Hooker - one in each half
    2 - Lock - one in each half unless there is an injury in which case the lock on plays rest of the game.
    Having one hooker would make a big difference but it seems we are playing both?
    Will mean second row plays 80 minutes so wouldn't have one on bench.

      Wisely LOL. I think you nailed it actually. If a wing gets injured becomes interesting, usually centre moves to the flank and the bench backrowers goes to centre. But Boy both our star centres do not go well moving that little distance one spot wider.

      We need a utility to cover backrow lock and centre enter lewis brown . Parcell will need to be there also for hooker 5/8 . So that leaves to mobile forwards which would be lawrence and lussick im thinking. How barrett uses them is anyones guess ,im starting to think he is having another look at leary as well .

      That's why we miss cuthbo so much. He could move to the wing easily if one of them pulled up lame.

        Couldn't agree more on that. Have been shocked when Killer has had to play wing in a match how lost he looks, it really makes you realise what a specialist spot it is. Oddly enough I think Killer would go better at fullback, but wing....not his go.

        Depending on the opposition, Barrett seems to be a modern coach who will alter the interchange depending on the flow of the game....the question I look forward to seeing answered is who starts where in the pack & the 14 - 17
        As for interchange, no doubt will be based on game flow & opposition.

        Reduced interchange will be a factor this year, and I think we are well-placed with plenty of lean athletic types. Love to see those sides that are stacked with behemoths come undone as the year rolls on. Bye bye Dogs, Bunnies and co.

          I think we will use the interchange to replace tired players and give them a rest
