I’m not so much defending Gordon. I thought he was poor - but I thought he was very good, when fit, during Super Rugby. And I don’t think it is always necessary to punt guys after 1 bad outing. I’m personally okay with him being retained.
Honestly, I think the fact we won is clouding the judgment of a lot of people.
Imagine if Gordon played like that on a match deciding Bledisloe. There is absolutely no way in hell would anyone want him touching a gold jersey.
Why shouldn't there be repercussions for not performing?
