The question for me is do we choose to play just Thilthorpe and have him second ruck, or play Thilthorpe and Frampton/Himmelberg to fill the second ruck.Do we want Thilthrope doing that though? Whilst it is a way to get him into the side, it does put extra wear and tear on the body.
As a personal opinion, Riley is too talented to be wasted as a 2nd ruck. That's for the more 'hack' forwards, i.e. the Framptons/Himmelbergs, of this world.
Frampton sucks and Himmelberg isn't performing. I don't see why we should pick them, clogging up our forward line and wasting a spot in the team that could be used on someone better.
I'd back Thilthorpe to perform against the likes of (for example) Oscar Allen or Sam Day in the ruck
