Well Andy Ellis has been sent home after his injury yesterday against the Scots.

His replacement is due to be named today.

I think it could be time for Alby Matthewson but not sure who else is available at the moment.

Any others??

Oh Awesome, Alby should of been the 3rd choice half back anyway!

This is the start of Albys long career as an All Black. He will be no.1 Half Back come RWC 2011

It seems the players who should have gone originally are getting the call ups due to injuries.

Elliott, Matthewson etc.

Yep - only justice would've been Elliot coming in for Flynn instead of Hore...

Yeah agreed Flynn did nothing against scotland when he came on. shouldnt have been there at all.

I dont see Matthewson getting a run when he gets there though unless he gets a run of the bench against Munster.

Hopefully Elliott gets to start against munster and push for the bench spot for the last two tests.

Flynn did the lineouts OK (which was a weakness of his) but his field play was far too flamboyant, too much "look at me" behaviour trying to be a hero

Yeah but flynn is a short term option we should be using this tour to blood guys like elliott rather than waiting for the year before the world cup.

Elliott will be the starting hooker at the 2011 world cup.
