Amazing moves, amazing line. Should be on everyone's ticklist!

J1_TOV 13/Aug Lead RP

Few plays in 2014. Convinced I probably wasn't strong enough so came back for the occasional play in 2017 with 2 or 3 serious sessions in August to put this to bed. Seem to be only two hard moves up the whole line but very pumpy when making links. All came together pretty well with lots of sensible beta (thx mostly to Will).
