Due to the club stating that Takairangi has been training in the forwards (ie., will play in the forwards this year) it answered the question where Hayne will play (ie. Centre). But it has thrown some other questions up such as the following:
Q1. Should Takairangi start in the backrow with Moeroa or Ma'u dropping to the bench?
Q2. Should Takairangi move to the bench with Edwards and Scott? If so then we only have one genuine frontrower on the bench being either Alvaro or Evans. If we have Edwards and Takairangi on the bench at the same time then we cannot have Smith and or Pritchard on the same bench.
Q3. Should Takairangi start the season for Wenty?
Q4. Do we need two genuine frontrowers on the bench, or is one enough?
