Adam Ashley-Cooper: The world’s most underrated player?

I might take some hits here, but... I want to really like AAC, but I just can't bring myself to love him. He is too flawed as a player. Does that make sense? I think it will be a great pointer to the dour form of the Wallabies over the last 10 years that this man will be a 100 test Wallaby, and still not be able to pass to an acceptable standard. I also think as a 100 test Wallaby, you would imagine he would be a GREAT player that we will remember for many years... but no... I don't think we will talk of AAC as a Wallaby GREAT in years to come. And what does that say about his 100 tests, or the level of players we have had over the last 10 years? To counter that, he has always been solid hasn't he? Just never to the GREAT standard. So again, a solid player, making 100 tests for his country...

Mainstream media is slipping further behind the curve

You know what I hate about journalism now? And this may or may not be on topic... Quoting tweets in the article... It is like I can't be bothered actually contacting anyone involved in this story regarding this, so here is what they said on twitter... Or, I think this, and here is a heap of people on twitter who think the same, to validate my view... Honestly, journalism sucks at the moment. It is very hard to find main stream news that is honest, and not sensationlist. Even 60 minutes last night... My goodness it is bad.

PRICHARD: Actually Ben Barba, you are “going that bad”

Barba has looked completely disinterested since his injury, and since his future speculation last year. It looked like he just didn't want to be playing last year. His defense was terrible, and that has carried over this year. Previously he was stopping tries, but since last year, he is a turnstile, and seems as though he has no desire to put his body on the line.
