    Gits had this to say on the selection:

    “I thought it [10, 12, 15] worked well, it served its purpose as far as giving us opportunities,” Giteau said.

    “For me personally I felt like it gave us a bit more room out wide to have a crack with the ball in hand.

    “You know it’s only going to get better – that was a short turn around we’ve got a longer week this week and if they stick with the same combination we are only going to be better.

    “Just knowing who’s going to be 10 and getting that rotation working better is going to be a positive for us out there.”
