So what of it? As a side we are unbalanced. Two world class props I feel are on the decline and the replacements not up to scratch, The stand in hooker chosen last night is not as big as his heart, which counts for a lot, but not in European Rugby. Second row is where we have riches, a shame that some of the best have to double up as 6s because of Injury. We have a two good 7s,one who has to play at 8 because we got rid of our natural ball carriers who should play there.
Scrum half? Ok going forwards, Fly half? OK. Centres are wings, full backs and fly halves playing out of position and we have riches in the back three. Manu, I fear will never be back to what he was.
Worst of all there is no leadership on the pitch. Brains could not have been more fried last night than if they were locally sourced Mars bars.
Coaching, the DOR is a damn fine forwards coach and the coach seems to want to play pass the hand bag.
A DOR in the Woodward mould. Calm, do the right thing under pressure philosophy and less of the headless chuck.......in both senses of the word.
An Anthony Allan figure in midfield, an organiser and a general.
A balanced back row. Something along the lines of Back, Wells, Richards. Complimentary skills and guile.
PS: Serves you right for living in Wales.
Yep..............Dwayne Dibley is alive and well.
P.S. There is nothing worse than suffering the mick being taken out of you by a Welshman with a "Mock Jock" accent.............aye.
