Spot on i think. Danny was excellent last night and a lot of friends who watched the match at home before coming out partying agreed, even tho they dont know a great deal about him.Bill W wrote:depends who we are playing.
SA start with Hipkiss
Argies start with Tait
Definately got to play Hipkiss at 13 if we are playing South Africa. Having said that, the argies might run at us (then again, the french might have too) so maybe having a big tackler would work out well for them too.
Agreed generally that i dont think Tait will be ousted. Hipkiss was excellent but it depends on what happens with Lewsey. If he's back and on the wing again, it'll probably remain with tait at 13.
But hipkiss wouldnt have come on at that time in the game had Lewsey not hobbled off. Thats the problem. Infact, you could say that Lewsey hobbling off was the best thing to happen to Dan Hipkiss this tournament, he desperately needed more than 10 minutes to show what he can do!
Banbury, i think Flood and Hipkiss is where the money's at, but i cant see a drastic decision like that being made at this stage. Maybe in a game that means nothing (surely the future though!).
Also agreed with Chuter, Regan was average but not brilliant!
