Your right on this one Chief.....I have nothing but admiration for Gower but he is a fringe forward and was retained for that reason.....it does indicate how poor our forwards are when he stands out amongst our best.
Injuries not withstanding it also shows how badly we have missed Nathan Brown.
Manu Mau' is getting back to his best is some consolation, in the side we eventually have, I would like to see forwards of Manu's class coming off the bench! Tepai is also in this class. They will be our future depth, getting the starting six is the challenge......1 Brown and then the rest, Paulo, Mahoney, Stone and two more marquee working forwards?
I think Gower has always been a BA favourite, that was the only reason he got a contract this year!
Nothing against Gower but if BA thinks we can go into 2019 with him in our best 17 then he clearly wouldn’t have fixed our forward issues.
Exactly right mammo and Ape.
