No Hodges on the bench ? Four forwards again ? Seriously, we used to get cheap metres from dummy half over the last few years. Tafua, Matai and even woodman would be good for some invaluable scoots from dummy half. Even Ballin used to contribute a little, however he has somewhat slowed down. Our point of difference from dummy half has virtually ceased. Every to e a Hodges has taken the field in first grade he's been dynamic. Don't get me wrong he's no Cam Smith, Farah or Segeyaro, however he's only at the beginning of his career, and could develop into a very very good hooker. His performance in the pressure cooker environment of the semis behind a depleted forward pack in last years narrow semi final against the Dogs was brilliant. Let's blood him now.
