A few things regarding Deans and Cooper have just occurred to me:
1. If Deans thinks Cooper is behind Taps form slump, why didn't he pick Taps?
2. If Deans believes having a 10 that is too involved hurts the playmaking ability of your 12 and thus has opted for JOC (James O'Connor), why in all likelihood is Deans going to go for a non playmaking 12 in Horne but a playmaking 15?
3. If Deans thinks playmaking is important outside of 10, why did he match Cooper with McCabe, A Finger and AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) as the centres and fullback in the World Cup semi?
4. If Deans selected him on the past 38 occasions when he even less balanced as he is now, why has he opted Edit:against him this time?
