Can't see him playing against Newcastle, 2 games in 5 days would be pretty rough
The potential of being 12th is pretty rough!

Agree though, maybe he’ll feature in the last 3 rounds.
Might depend on Eastmond. If he's not fit then the options are running thin. Move Owen to 12, keep Toomua at 15 then bring the new boy onto the bench. It's that SAR into the back three, Toomua at 12 and new boy on the bench. Unlikely to see Hardwick or Joe Ford onto the bench with Toomua and George Ford in the 23.
Do you really want Toomua at 15 thought he was poor in D?

His one on one tackling was pretty shocking but our attack looked really good with the Eastmond/Manu midfield and Toomua playing as a wide playmaker sort of like Geordan used to do. Gave us good options on attack with two centres, blindside winger all running off of Ford then Toomua out the back getting the other winger involved.

Toomua is normally good in D so hopefully he'll use last week as experience and play better next time out.

Personally I’d prefer Toomua back at 12 with May, Olowofela and SAR in the back 3.

I would agree on that get him back in at 12

The Ford/Toomua axis hasn't really sparked all season though. It was their best attacking performance at the weekend with Toomua playing wider and more running based threats closer to Ford.

Hardwick has been getting good reviews and looks brimming with confidence in the small amount of the A league game I saw. Perhaps we'll see him in the 23.

Should we have been concerned that the scrum was under pressure?
Ma’afu or Feao?
Senior scrum has been a decent platform.

It’s the balance of him maybe not being at his best positionally (defensively) at 15.
