    No question the flow of the game changed in our favour at that point.

    No doubt about it. Clearly McGregor is a ways off being fully fit. Iwata really should start next weekend.

    He gives the two in front a solid platform. I do wonder if McGregor is also looking more exposed because he doesn't have the fullbacks inverting as much as he did under Ange.

    Think it's not only McGregor it's affecting. Having inverted FBs also helped the CBs move the ball out from the back. Would probably have helped Scales massively this season.

    Very true. You mark McGregor and options are very limited.

    Thought he looks decent when he came on.

    Was rapid as * and busting a lung to get us up the park at one point.

    He was the smart sub to bring a bit more composure into the middle and fresh legs. Very good player to have in our squad.
