Unless Garrick has been working on his goal kicking all off season, and It’s improved immensely, I’d give the spot to Funa, and let DCE do the goal kicking.Looks like Walker and Garrick might start as the left side centre/wing, with Suli & Saab on the right. However I wouldn't mind seeing Funa get left wing ahead of Garrick. Either way we'll have all-new outside back combinations, so defensive cohesion could be a big problem early on.
Having said that I think our leaky outside defence in the trial was mostly due to the middle getting exposed. Cust at hooker was OK with the ball but not very convincing in defence. Croker must be the preferred 9 and if his defence is not right we'll be in deep trouble. Luckily tackling is his best quality, so fingers crossed.
Davey and Schu on the bench with Keppie and Aloiai, and we're ready to go.
Unlucky first up will be either Funa or Garrick, with Haumole, Boyle, Sippers getting their chance soon enough. While Turbo's missing, Harper has a great chance to stake his claim for a permanent spot somewhere in the backs.
