I agree.I think Lawton will definitely take the utility spot from Cust. And to that end, the improvement he has shown lately in the position probably means that injury or suspension aside, Croker will likely be the dummy half at least until Fainu is back (if he's ever back that is). Lawton can cover hooker and back row, which gives Des more options than Cust who is primarily a half these days.
Crocker has almost been the biggest improver this year considering how out of depth he was last year. Its his defence I really like. Lawton is just a footballer, can cover hooker or backrow and would not look out of place in the halves or centre if needed to cover there.
I would not have Siro in my top 17.
I think Keppie has been a revelation in the back row, would start him there and brick Quac off the bench. Aloiai to start, Marty off bench. Some real impact there. Then I would keep Sipley on the bench as he has been going great.
