agreed...Catts deserves to be benched at present and Vaughan needs a start but would we have the physical muscle to contend with the size, weight and brute strength of a stoke side who've made their style of play relevant to their ability to muscle their way around?
Not an easy call for Bruce..guaranteed if Catts does start, he'll be in the book early on and lucky to last the match as he simply doe not have the self control.
Ji just may be a bit light-weight against the bully boys.
There again, the more agile may be a solution.
