I wish I could so easily pick up this stuff!
I think its great how our FB takes the time to write these articles in his spare time. Not much happens in accounts I suppose.
Plenty of people saw it in Nonu. The problem was he was a spare part from 2003 until after RWC 2007. As mentioned, he had serious competition for the 12 jersey when Mauger and McAlister were around - and prior to that, Tana also - but once he was given a few opportunities at 12 he flourished quickly and his game developed rapidly. I don't see that early level of flourishment or development in the 12 jersey at the top level in Laumape's game and therefore I don't see him kicking on.
What a load of crap. Laumape is only 2nd season Super Rugby if I’m not mistaken. Once again it’s flavour of the month to diss him. Tuipolotou and Saiili were extremely average ABs.
According to the Herald's commentary, Ioane was "awesome" at centre, and scored three tries. Matt Faddes is a real plodder though.
Just awesome? Or O for awesome?
Arrggghhh, I just opened a click-bait article from Rattue about which current ABs won't make the RWC in his opinion. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
You have to respect the guy. He was right on the money about Carter and McCaw being past it. Wasn’t he?
