Don't think we'll see Rory much but i've been impressed by Andrew the past few months of last season, seemed it was between him and Murphy to fight for the third hooker contract and he raised his game enough to justify getting it

Dundon said at the event this week that there's some good young hookers in the squad too so i'm presuming he means McCall and McBurney, hopefully we see the later, could be Rory's replacement for the next 10 years

I think Rory could be handing over the reigns this season. I'm not sure he has another in him. Herring was the heir in waiting but I've been less convinced by him. Andrew could be better. McBurney is class from what I've seen.

What I remember of McCall from his time from the u20s was that he was very good around the pitch but his lineout let him down severely, hopefully has gotten over that since then. McBurney should hopefully be fighting it out for second choice by next season.

Let's hope the pack hits the ground running - we're going to have to stick it up the jumper this season!

He can actually play both at the same time, but his pass from the base of the ruck is a bit loopy.

That's OK as it is him that has to catch it

I just hope we can keep them all fit for long enough to find out.

First choice pack will be a handful for any side in Europe.
