Between Faz, Isa & Bateman, do we need a recognised 13 or just 3 back row forwards with anyone of them dropping in there. We also appear to move away from a ball playing 13 when Lockers is not available

That’s because he is probably the last of the great ball playing loose forwards Image
Can’t disagree with you. But sadly, like all greats I think his time.

I think you could easily count all the "ball-playing loose forwards" in the world right now comfortably on the fingers of one hand.

Other than Lockers, who is there? Jake Trbojevic? Victor Radley?

Agreed but how many were there ever at a given time? It’s not like every team used to have one.

I can’t put my finger on why it’s died out because the role of a ball playing 13 still shared the majority of abilities that a second rower playing loose did...

It is blue. Tomorrow or Friday.
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Why can't we have a brown and orange away kit during the non traditional year, I'd buy one
