Good article- similar to Andrew Webster's a few years ago that was a seriously powerful piece of writing.
I'd say the Waratahs would be.
Seems like you don’t really even understand this (statistically pretty flimsy) theory. How can they contribute to any form of cohesiveness when.
I’d suggest a number of those 10s you listed might have a completely different set of values to yourself.
Maybe loyalty to Queensland rugby isn’t.
How can one be mercenary in professional sport? Should they not seek the best opportunity?
This is completely fictional, the guy was unwanted by the Storm so returned to QLD rugby. Regardless he played years of Shute Shield and never.
No he wasn’t- he was strong in Game 1 but not at all yesterday. There was a reason Gordon got additional game time.
Pretty much this, except I actually think Gordon has been pretty decent and coming on with 10-15 mins with all structure lost makes it pretty.
I don't get this- you'd select Wright at 7 over Hooper purely for the fact he's a better jumper and deficient everywhere else? We already have.
I think this game really showed the gulf in class between the outside backs between the two teams, with the two forward packs being close to equal.
He wouldn't have broken one tackle in that game.
I once saw Dan Carter have a pretty average 20 minutes too.
Prediction for you mate - there will be no private equity investment for next year's competition - there's not enough time or certainty.
You're a big fan of Godwin, yet very happy to eager to criticise Alex Newsome or Joey Walton? What am I missing here..
I think consistent is probably the best you can say about Godwin (echoing RR's comment above). I really hope the Waratahs look to spend that.
Godwin isn't going to add any more than Moeroa, Hunt or Walton already provide; but it is likely to come at a higher price. With finances tight, the.
Literally 80% of the time Hooper plays, he is the best player on the field- regardless of what jersey he puts on (and that's not hyperbole).
This doesn't make any sense- you want to pick the player who isn't even the best fullback in his provincial team to start there for the Wallabies,.
He's played one game at fullback this year and sporadically over the past and you think he will be a lock at 15? You know what you will get with.
Swap DHP with Wright and I think that backline is nearly spot on- great balance of form and potential.
