Like that team in that he has trusted the back-line, and either strengthened or rotated the pack. I'm happy with the changes.
Talk of the SH: I agree on starting Williams in this one, but I want to see Murray get on before the hour is up (much sooner if Williams is having a mare). As someone said, Williams was OK first half last week, then started going sideways a few steps in 2nd half and ruining the setup. Was the opposite the previous week. If Penney sees something or can bring him up a level, then go for it. Right now he's not there, but if he can get him, then let's do it. But if he's not on form, then Murray must come on sooner. We know Murray needs game-time too. As for Stringer, I think he can contribute much more in 60 minutes with the 'A's than coming on with 5 minutes in the Rabo. Remember we have a lot of hope in the JJs, Scanlan, Deasy, etc
Happy to have Varley start again. His throw for Dougie's try was brilliantly executed, but mebbe I'd prefer to have kept that one under wraps for when we really needed it (must-win HEC pool game....).
Murray and RoG on the bench is best to get 'em up to speed (& might show past reputations mean nothing now with a new coach...). Whatever about RoG, I do want to see the old Murray.
BTW, anyone know what the story is with Donnacha Ryan?
