I don't know, but some players excel in club rugby but aren't quite good enough to reach that next level.....
Dan Penca comes to mind.
Talking about Penca - he has played hooker on and off this season - I know its a very open ended/stretched question - but due to his size/ability - do people think if he had been a hooker from the get-go - could he of made it to higher honours?
He played Aus 19s as a Hooker.
Who do you prefer out of OJ Noa or Bruce Kaino?
The Canberra Times has confirmed Coutts' suspension for 3 yeallow cards over the season. Royals' 7 Luke Kimba is in the same boat and is also ruled out. In another blow for Wests flanker Rob Valentini is sidelined due to the concussion rule.
I think Kimba only came on to replace Cussack when he was injured against Vikings so not a major loss for the Royals starting 15. Two key players out of the Wests pack makes an already difficult task a lot harder!
I guess that means that from now on if a player gets 2yellows during the early part of the season he will purposely cop another in order to get a clean slate and be right for the finals
