All the signs are pointing to Leo and or/ Stu really not rating Patterson it seems.Serb wrote:Interesting that Osbourne got the nod ahead of Patterson for the bench slot. Thought Patterson looked pretty good in the couple of games he got last season. Good to get a look at someone new I guess.
Back row a little surprising, assuming there’s a plan for rotating all players involved for the next two games, so we should see Deegan reinstated next week.
JGP, Fardy & Lowe playing together for the first time. Glad that whole KOLPAK situation is finally done.
RE: Kelleher not starting, I’m assuming we consider him a wing only and in that regard, he’s never going to be picked ahead of a fit Lowe or McFadden, does beg the question when we will see him — presumably when McFadden inevitably gets injured.
Between having a speculative recruitment attempt on Casey and now bringing in an AIL scrumhalf they clearly don't think the stocks they have in Luke, JGP, HOS and Patterson is enough.
