    Not really...I think he plays the game on it's merits tbh and handballs when it's on...he's a first option release player and (I think) a good team-mate.

    I totally get your criticism but I think his kicking is fine. I just don't see him as a precision player who has that innate ability to 'see' a target and he makes his mistakes long (blast away) rather than short.

    I just think we all want him to be something he isn't. He doesn't see the ground like Caleb Daniel and - even if he did - he plays within himself so wont try to hit those 'left of centre' type targets because he would rather go long to a contest than turn-it-over short. It's who he is.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    I mean it's clear she needs an intervention/exorcism.

    Macrae front of mind for that, surely. Spending a lot of time outside of the centre square.

    There were some onion related travesties that warranted a close look as to whether this thread should be shut down for it's own good.
