Azog vs Tauriel Can't Post

In terms of skill Tauriel is much better, but strength Azog has the dominance. Tauriel could defeat him with quick acrobatic movements or with a lot of arrows, but if she gets in range of azogs mace or grasp, she wont last long. I kind of go for tauriel only for her acrobatic advantage.
Could we see this in Taba?

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.

Strength vs speed [In reply to] Can't Post

Azog is stronger, but Tauriel considerably faster. Hm... Azog's a mighty orc, but even the mightiest man... I mean, orc may be slain by one arrow, so... Tauriel?

Azog [In reply to] Can't Post

Azog took out so many dwarves, and beat Thorin at ease. To let Azog die by a Tauriel, but let Bolg beat Legolas is silly. It defeats the purpose of having a big bad scary orc, and pretty much says Tauriel is tougher than Legolas and hundreds of dwarves. I know she pulled off a zillion silly kill scenes on the barrel ride, but I'm choosing to ignore it, and chalk it up to PJ just wanting an ott scene to express his bias toward elves and thinking them superheroes, and nearly everyone one else in ME are feeble weak creatures.
