Harry Johnson-Holmes is turning into a very very good rugby player. And Hannigan is all of a sudden looking pretty sharp too, both still have a long way to go before they are test quality but its promising.

Completely agree. I am very interested to see if they both get included in the Wallabies. The issue for me is both of them are best at inside center and I am not convinced you could play either at 13 successfully.

That is a really valid point. Whilst I think it is an overreaction to boil down the teams scoring struggles to just Taqele’s departure he certainly added an x-factor to the team. The bigger issue is that the team has failed to adjust its style of play given they do not have him as a weapon this year.

You are right, he has had some misses this year. He is a far better thrower the Latu that’s for sure. He doesn’t offer a whole lot around the park however.

Hunt was awesome when he got out there and has been the Waratahs best back when he plays I believe. It will be interesting to see if and how he gets involved in the Wallabies.

That is a very good point. For the last 24 minutes the Canes played with a 9 at 10

Was the Waratahs loss an ominous insight into the year ahead?

The Pelicans were also better once Cousins went down last season. I am skeptical that a Davis and Embiid pairing would work. Embiid can play outside but he shouldnt as much as he does and Davis is the same, relegating one of them to a primarily perimeter player is a waste of their talents.

Why a Ben Simmons for Anthony Davis trade should happen

I think Hanigan has plenty of potential but he is not yet fully physically developed and it shows a lot, he is only 23.

Higgenbotham is not the Answer. Id love to see a second coming of Owen Finnegan. Someone with pure aggression on both sides of the ball.

The next four weeks will define the Waratahs' season
