Not too sure about the new mid air tackle rule where you can't tackle attacking players either now. You have to wait for them to land before you can touch them. Hope we've taken notice and will put even more kicks out Feldt's way.
Its overall a horrendous rule. Can see many headaches being caused with controversial calls made throughout the season around this.

Teams will no doubt exploit it though. A kick in the air to either corner should result in favourable outcomes (be it drop outs or tries) more often you’d think.

We'll probably see wingers learn how to catch and immediately crunch themselves into a ball so their torso is the first thing that touches the ground rather than their feet.

Green is a dud. Probably hates that people are giving HTF a few wraps.

Good luck seeing HTF in first grade within the next two seasons if this conservative man is in charge of the team.

It's only fair that everyone gets a go.

I guess he could be confident of a win and is saving the hammer for the finals.

Maybe the idea is to save Hamiso for the QF - we will play relatively soon after this game if we progress

Am I disappointed Ham and Esan aren’t playing?? Yeah
Hopefully the boys that come in can do a job and see Ham and E in 3rd match
