Man we miss a kicker

The highlanders reserve nailed the two last shot, Banks, neither Cruden or Barrett would get either of those

Banks is money bro.
Yeah, we do miss DCs kicking, but I think % wise we aren't as bad as we think.

Ah I thought this was the actual team.

Naholo was awesome but I don't reckon he'll get picked ahead of Savea.

Me too. :shock: Awesome, I think he's a boss. Be cracking experience for him, any cane getting world class coaching is a bonus! :cheers: Hope JB gets a run.

What's the Samoan team going to look like?

That is the team for Samoa.
Will it be the same group for the Lions or is that game being used to sort out one or two selections?

Depends at centre on Crottys fitness, him or SBWs will probably get the nod and other on bench, probably Jordie Barrett dropped
Read will come back at 8, and Ardie to the bench, Fafita dropped.
In the wings it may depend on how a Dagg and Savea go, as you know we have Naholo, and Reiko Iaone waiting to start.
Possibly Cruden for Sapoaga, pending fitness

I hate to say this but

We have a few historic concussion issues, like North

Ben Smith, Retallic, Cody Taylor, SBW have all had recent knocks and is a real concern, concussions, in the NZ rugby lately esp.

It'll be very close to that. Definite changes if fit/not playing for Maori would be:
2. Dane Coles (unlikely he'll be fit)
8. Keiran Read
22. Aaron Cruden
23. Rieko Ioane (Better midfield cover than Jordie - we have enough people covering 15)

And maybe:
12. Ryan Crotty

But if SBW/ALB goes as well as I think it will he might be on the bench.

So it's about 2 starting players off who we would pick to face the Lions in test 1 IMO.
