Not helped by the fact that the other halfbacks are getting zero game time. Apart from Phipps starting against Scotland Genia has played the full 80 in all the internationals since.
Mowen should be brought into the squad to replace Pocock. Gil and Hooper can cover the 7 for now and he would offer more leadership if it's an issue.
Edit: Kepu is also out of the clash this weekend and maybe longer.
