    I would like to think Gibbins would of got a bench spot too  :yes:



  • Melani Nanai was impressive against the Tahs. Jerome Kaino as well.



  • To be fair most of those are hard to argue with. I'd have Kaino ahead of Shields and probably Bird instead of one of the Canes locks. Halaholo had a good game and his competition was pretty poor.
    Nanai was pretty good again for the Blues so may sneak in instead of Ben Smith but not too sure there.



  • piers francis was good at 12.
    best game i've seen big bird play, id have him in there.
    perenara was far better than usual, but he still didn't play as well as aaron smith.
    franks was good until inexplicably subbed.



  • Cane was outstanding and deserves his selection in the team of the week. As far as the under bubbler is concerned, I would go for Kara Pryor.
    Noticeable underperformers of the week end : Ofa T, Romano, Todd, Messam, J. Savea. Much more is expected from them !
