Peter Johnson (47)
Faster, more agile, kicks from the hand better. More experienced, as good in defence. More versatile from the bench, some leadership value.
In short, yeah.
But he is arguably not as effective in a straight swap at 12 as finger would be > who plays a similar game to the man he would replace McCabe. Granted he can take the kicks if JOC (James O'Connor) go's down injured, but if JOC (James O'Connor) is on the wing then deans isnt going to sub giteau onto the wing anyway, it would require a whole backline reshuffle and I think he would chance his arm and have quade or kurtly take the kicks instead. Besides apart from that I dont really think he brings much to the team anymore, especially at 10.
