Then I beg your pardon KPM, and thank you Brett... I never knew that.
I think All Blacks have had problems with defense this year. Nonu and Smith are a well oiled machine... outside of that, and the backs leak a bit. The absence of Nonu was noticeable in defense this year. Smith had to second guess other players, and it created holes. Might just be me though...
And for all the love and potential, reports are here that he was not going that well in the NRC?
I think he could stand a bit more fitness.
