Personally, a mixed bag. Obviously the front was going to change after the debarcle of the 1st test. Shaw in though? Not that impressed. DOC is very unlucky, as is AWJ. Hines would have been in if fit. The back line looks good. Byrne is obviously not fit, as I think he would have started. But kearney is a more than adequate replacement, and he played well last week.
The bench really surprises me though. ROG should not be there. He offers nothing different to Jones, and if the lions need to chase the game, Hookm would have been better. Shane on the bench is also a great call, great impact player with 20 left
