Main issue is Egans fitness.

He is the key to Browns game plan.

If Egan stays fit, I am ok with the pack situation, we need Egan to continue to use speed through back rowers not Props, to play one wide of the ruck.

So long as Addin Fonua-Blake and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak go straight, which is what they are good at, then the second and third hit ups are better going one wide through the speed of Aitken, Jazz, Curran, Katoa, and to a lesser extent Sironen.

Sironen is better for eyes up runs in the opposition twenty.

With sweet hands Egan there, we should be able to again have multiple loose forwards in motion.

Bunty and whoever else gets named at Prop are really just a stop gap.

When Lodge comes back he should see that first hit up run with him and his mate Addin Fonua-Blake rolling together...then you go wider, and then Jazz dummy half runs...and so on...roll on....

I would also play Addin Fonua-Blake for 80 minutes, give him a rest on the bench for a bigger spell next week when Lodge comes back.

I'm Not convinced U watched the game. Evans was "back slammed " in the first tackle, which dislodged the ball. As for the Naughty Words written on his Tape, NZ warriors player Wrote that on his Right wrist. Evans is right handed....isn't that a NZ Slang? FSC...does it mean "fish & chips" hahaha. Gees, I get laugh by Reading some of these Posts hahaha
Yip I watched the game, clearly your memory fails you. He wasn't back slammed in the 1st tackle as he subbed on at the 29 minute mark and had been on for 6 minutes before his sin binning - but he over achieved as he managed 2 penalties in the 6 minutes.

Here's the breakdown for you
31:08 penalised for a flop
35:03 penalised and sin binned for punching after the back slam. The punches were so effective that Chambers laughed as he threw them.
44::18 - Returns to field
47:12. - Penalised and put on report for a dangerous tackle
57:29 - Made an error
63:52 - Penalised dangerous tackle - Sin binned
74:30 - Returns to field
77:08- Penalised for a dangerous tackle
78:57- We were put out of our misery as he was hooked with a minute to go

His negative play summary was giving away 4 penalties (managed to give away a penalty in his first 3 minutes on the field, 3 consecutive times), 1 six again, 2 errors and 2 sin bins - all in 30 minutes

Did you watch the game?

You forgot in his first hit up he did a stupid offload attempt that wasn’t on, ball went to ground and we were fortunate to get back.

He was over enthusiastic, trying to hard and just needed to calm down. Brown needs to work out if he can get him just playing within himself which is enough.

Have you played any Games champ because players who have to wait 25 to 30 minutes to get involved into the Game are peaking and there Minds are going 100% faster by trying to Liff the Group sometimes it go's Great and Sometimes not so Good... You don't know what your going to Get because there's so many things going On... TIMING catching and Running are the 3 or 4 things that come to mind of causes Tackling Talking and Making something little more Easily Destroying the Opportunities...with a Tackle...EG.
I think all us on here have played sport mate. It’s hard aye, getting stressed out waited to get on. Catching, running, tackling. Can see why he struggled… 🤔

The team is evolving under NB to increase pace. Usually we think of the pace men as being out wide. We seem to be developing fast middle forwards to test their middles who are bigger, but slower. So on the Bench we have sacrificed a Prop for a faster big 2nd Rower (Katoa). There is Bunty who has good leg speed, and Sironen and Jazz.

I would advocate for our Bench players not to worry about post contact metres, rather hit contact and drop onto their stomachs for quick PTB.
