    Felt a bit sorry for Cogger sitting on the bench for the whole game after he's played so well the last few games. I was really surprised Pay picked Lewis ahead of him actually. In attack we'd definitely be better with Cogger and Foran in the halves but we also really need Lewis' defence. He makes a big difference in that area and can save tries. I hope in future we can try him at hooker, or lock. He needs a roving role to be able to cover both sides of the field. At lease JMK showed tonight there's no need to play Lichaa for any part of a game so that saves one bench spot. I don't know why it too so long for Pay to realise.
    Foran adds so much when he plays. I can understand those who want him gone but unless we can sign Munster or Keary there's not really any better replacements. If we make the semis next year I'd rather have Foran in our side in a big game than any one else in his position (other than Munster or Keary)

    JMK stays at 9, Lichaa stays well away from the side.

    Foran 6 cogger 7, put Lewis to lock and rotate with either elliot or Smith from off the bench.

    Seems like the best solution imo

    No contest here

    Cogger all the way.....

    Lewis has the worst kicking game i have seen along with a non-existent attacking game

    Without Lewis I highly doubt we wouldve kept souffs tryless. You have to recognise his value in a team like ours where the attack is poor

    I don't necessarily agree in one or the other, I say both. Without Lewis tonight they score but he saved the try. He does that every game he plays. Yes he's a half but he is rock solid and just needs more coaching in the weaker areas. I'm surprised he doesn't aim for more 40/20's with his long kicking game. I think Lewis is destined to be a ball playing lock.

    Lewis should be on the bench while cogger starts.

    If we don't land Api, what does everyone think of Cogger at 9? Or even Lewis? Future wise I think Wakeham has to be in our spine.

    As much as I admire Forans skill, he isn't in our future. Wakeham is. Would like to see a Cogger/Wakeham combo have a run.

    Cogger & Foran basically play the same game. With both on the field, one would have to play a more traditional half role & both would not be as effective. How I see it for this year & next, Foran or Cogger & Lewis or Wakeham. Excluding Foran, all three have great potential but how do you manage all three? Exciting times ahead

    Pre season is going to be massive next year. Player /skill development is going to be the make or break for Pay. Can't keep waiting until round 18 before the team hits its stride.

    Cogger far better, Lewis is way overhyped of the back of his strong defence.
