Is Reece still down under with the GB squad and if so, how the hell isn't he getting a game, either at centre or on the wing ??
Ash Handley is ok but, really ?

Fair enough, although he should still be out there playing centre.

Tbh I'm happy, he needs a rest to be ready to play for us. When it suits the selectors can never be bothered with our players so on this occasion I say stuff them.

I agree with your sentiment but, it did seem a little odd to draft a second rower in to play centre, when Reece had at least been in and around the squad and didn't let anyone down on his senior debut against France last season.
He certainly deserved a shot, before GB start putting square pegs into round holes.

Not too many people rated McNamara but, I actually think that Reece may have had a chance with him in charge.

Bennett, for all of his experience, seems like a throwback to the past ?

Everything about the team selections on this tour seems daft, yet another reason to get Reece out of it. Feel sorry for the lad but it's a mess not of his making.

Bennett doesn't seem to mind playing players out of position and ignoring others.

Unfortunately it seems to be the norm for him.

Ultimately it's their head on the block and things haven gone so well, yet and it's their prerogative to pick who they think can do the best job for them within the dynamic of the side.
However, it still seems wrong to draft in a player that has little recent experience at centre, over a player that knows the position well AND has done ok there in his one appearance so far.
You have to feel a bit gutted for the lad, although, as Fisherman suggests, IF this is to be a tour, where GB are whitewashed, it may be better for him not to have been involved.
