Yes a bit of debate around that here. He is in as third halfback like the Lions tour, but played no time.
We have a player Brad Webber I think his name is for the Chiefs who is seen as number 3. Some think rather than choose another 9, they are sticking with TKB until eoyt. Or possibly don't rate the others as back up :dontknow:

TKB is a different sort of player from TJ and Smith. Also hes proven to be a GC with the AB selectors and hasn't strung them along or bailed out like other players have.

Being up front with your plans and honest with the coaches should get you some payback and it has for TKB.

Our next halfback off the rank will probably be another acronym. TTT. I hope he goes on the EoYT so the NH commentators have to struggle with calling Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi.

Regarding the selections - Ofa is shit but Nepo is good. Nepo looked a bit weak compared to the Lions scrum but that was in a Chiefs pack missing loads of front line players.
Good to see Fifita still in the mix. He's the new Luatua.
Jules needed to be dropped. NMS is back - I wonder how long he'll stay fit for...
Interesting to see DMac in there as Bender's cover. Hansen talked recently about him being a 9/10 player like Jon Preston was.

Would say Weber and TTT would be pretty contested. Weber chosen last year, and back injury, August- September, ready for eoyt.

Eoyt will be interesting, Laulala and Ofa, taking over from Franks and Faumuina, defenately a drop in experience and standard of both, in comparison to the other world class duo. A good NH tour where there is nowhere to hide(no franks, no Faumuina) will be the making of them hopefully.

Ben Franks was shithouse. Nepo is already better.

Agree there, I hope he can really own a starting spot, and a bench spot.
I also hope they take another tighthead on the NH tour, so we don't get potentially exposed when Ofa gets on.. Maybe he can provehimself with Whitelock and Retalic up his arse
