With Ma'u out injured for a good while, who replaces him on the bench? But before you come up with a solution you have to confirm what his role was meant to be first. Did BA intend to use him as an impact forward, maybe in the middle? Or was he meant to provide relief for either Lane or Niukore who may struggle to play the full 80? I don't like the idea of shifting Taka back to the bench because I don't see him providing any sort of impact from there; he's just not that kind of player and bears no resemblance to Ma'u in terms of playing style. That said, removing Taka from the backline would allow us to move Fergo to the centres and bring in Sivo on the wing, which I have been gunning for since the start of preseason. Having Taka in the centres is a complete waste of space and it weakens the backline (though personally I hate the fact he's even in the top 17 to be honest).
The other option is to bring in Gower who has provided admirable service but is nonetheless past his time. At least you'll know what you'll get from him and I don't remember many occasions when he badly let us down. Are there any other options you can think of? Who do you think BA will go with?
