    Because Donald isn't in the UK yet. Apparently. His NZRU contract goes through to November.

    Oh. That's surprising. I'm sure I'd read that he'd already left - I know there were problems with his visa - not having played enough games for the ABs or something, maybe that's delayed his departure enough to allow the call-up.

    I reckon if Slade wasn't injured for the next game Cruden would probably end up starting. If that were the case I'd prefer Slade on the bench than Donald.

    Ah well hopefully it won't be too much of an issue.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I'd imagine it'll be Cory Jane at 15 if Dagg's still unable to play; I'd say Dagg will be fit to play though.

Would've been foolish to pick someone like Anscombe, Barrett, Sopoaga, etc and potentially through them into a WC semi-final.

    Love that Cruden's now 1st choice 1st 5. I saw him at the Wales v SA game last month in the crowd, and he was pissed off his nut. What a champ.

    Appropriate, seeing as he only has one.
