Dombrandt
« on: Saturday 01-Dec-2018, 00:09 »
Outstanding tonight.

When robshaw is back, I can see him slotting in at lock.

How good would the following be:

4. Horwill
5. Dombrandt
6. Robshaw
7. Clifford
8. Chisholm

Bench:

Merrick / Symons
Bothma / Kunatani

Our squad depth I s looking far stronger this season.

Not sure that Clifford is a guaranteed starter over Dombrandt right now.

I'm not sure what happens with our back row but Dombrandt was outstanding tonight.

I couldn’t pick it frankly.

Dombrandt, Clifford and Chis were superb.

Dunno. I think he's been top drawer, getting better every week. He does so much.

Certainly a great problem to have. I'd agree on the lock point, not sure how you could keep any of the 4 off the pitch.

The back row were great tonight and The Dominator was at the forefront. He's hard to kick out of the team right now.

As both JK and Gustard mentioned after the game, Dombrandt is really not in shape. The footage from the dressing room backs this up. Would be interesting to see what he's capable of once we've fixed that.

I think you’ll find Joe Marler simply calls it an “old school rig”

At the end of the BT coverage JK asked Gussy if he saw a young Nick Easter in Dombrandt ..... hadn’t thought of it like that but can see some similarities

I think a lot of what he meant was that he came to the game late.

He definitely doesn’t look like he is in shape, but in fairness to him, he was good for 80mins which suggests to me that he’s fitter than he looks.

He’s a real find. I’d definitely be open to us trying him at lock, but as raedarius said, he and Chis are probably more likely to keep their places when Robshaw returns with Clifford dropping to the bench. It’s a nice problem to have anyway.

RR JK also added his ability to stay on his feet. For me that’s where his best potential lies. He looks to be a coaches dream. So much to come. Dombrant is on Fire!
