I rekon he will make. I think thats Deans' preference. Could be wrong and hope I am and he picks CL instead.
The key is playing close to the gainline from JOC. Being closer means theres very little time for the defence to 1. Read plays and 2. Make up for any mistakes that are actually then amplified by the line speed.
As Jiggles says below, I hope the Wallabies let Genia run the show with forwards around the fringes over and over to make a dent before going wide. Also, Genia himself needs to be a running threat when there is momentum. Look at how he played in the second half against the Rebels (who had good line speed for most of that game).
Thats interesting about the blind. I remember from the Waratahs game they checked Davies for offside at the intercept and it was fine. But I saw him offside a number of times on the blind separate to that intercept. Others too.
Very true about Lealiifano. I doubt he will be Deans' option but I really wish he was. We will need a second man in the side after Genia that does have a pretty long pass. That first section of the Lions line really races up.
