Knights Injury and Suspension Updates

It's gotta be Hunt/Best/Tuala/Lee for our current best backline anyway, hasn't it? And then To'a as first reserve. Don't think Shibasaki gets near unless there's injuries.
I would have thought Lee/Best/Hunt/To’a.

Like thinking of Tuala as the first reserve outside back a lot more, not his biggest fan personally.

It's such a shame that To'a got injured in the first game.
He was supposed to have trained the house down in the off season and we got to see half a game of him at his best.

He looked like the shoulder was more okay against the Dragons. Just wasn’t a great game for him to show what he can do with all the injuries to the spine.

I think we’ve got a real handy replacement for Lee in Starford. Brings a little bit more x-factor, is as much as a damaging ball runner as Lee, goes alright in defence and finishes tries just as well if not better. A little bit more experience won’t hurt, but I think he’s developing into a fine player for us.

Starford I think is a year or two away from really hitting his straps, which is exciting because he already goes pretty well. I think he may have played more fullback than winger coming through the grades too so he’s still learning his craft as a specialist winger. With his build, pace and strength, I think he’ll develop into a guy who gives you at least 12-15 tries every season, averages 150+ running metres, and will produce a clean break out of nothing a few times a year.

Defensively I think he’s still definitely a work in progress, although he’s very safe under the high ball and better aerially in attack than you’d think given his height. Definitely a keeper, a guy we’ll hopefully have for a good while.
