At this stage and after so many months of uncertainty at 12 I'd be content to see the coaches take a blind punt on Slade or Burgess if it meant they'd commit someone to the position (read that as sending 36 and possibly Burr and Barr home. I'm not, admittedly, Barritt's biggest fan when it comes to the national side and Burrell needs .. something else. I just don't know what because when he sparks he actually looks really good). Point being that this late in the day even the players fighting for the spot are probably feeling as tired as I am in not knowing who has a decent shot at making the squad. Good news in the article re: Brookes, at least. Hope he's available for another warm up. Had a solid run out on Saturday.
