“Cade has been playing through the pain recently, so he is going to be out for a bit of time,” he said.

“It’s going to be an easy decision to make. Having Bevan at fullback and Jai in the halves has been an option for us to use for a longtime, this time we get it for 80 minutes.

“He’s got a bulging disk in his neck, his scan showed that he had lost a bit of power in it. We will find out if it needs an operation or just rest.”
