in what way would we be foolish. Arnold has been somewhere between passable to good (it’s hard to quantify the importance of his defensive maul work against his lack of contribution in general play). The others have done nothing and they’ve replace players who were at least productive in the system.I disagree completely. Beale maybe, but the other three just need time.
we’d be so foolish to ignore Skelton, Arnold & Latu if they’re available. They’re on a hiding to nothing currently. I wager if available they’ll play a large and significant part of our RWC campaign.
They are all good players and no doubt it is hard for them to fit seamlessly into the current set up.
But that is part of the problem. A team is more than just a sum of its parts. They may still have a part to play, but the last 2 tests certainly haven’t don’t them any favours.
