What is the story of everyone dropping Fardy? One game where things werent going his way and now he is out of the 23? He had the second most ruck involvements, most line out takes of the round and if I remember correctly he also snatched one steal.
I know he did not rack up huge stats but he is more use in defence than attack and we had the posession so that explains some of his bad stats.
The props key role is still scrummaging. A bit of skill in the loose is the bonus.Neither does Slipper and Kepu.... Seems irrelevant.
Seriously Slim? Slipper and Kepu are both very good ball-carrying props.
