Looks like theyre going to power with their midfield, and Biggar/halfpenny to do a pollard/le roux kind of playmaking axis.

My interest is whether Wales can click. Pivac is looking to anchor their gameplan.

Wales have hope. Given selection trends i think Pivac is trying to select a heavy backline. He took out thew triple pivot mess, stuck with Biggar/Halfpenny, and is employing two hard hitters in Williams and NOrth. The trends show that they will work with two creative outlets in Biggar and Halfpenny, and then raw power to anchor their attack, with the 10 and 15 stitching things together with strong passing.

Should the Springboks shuffle their midfield?

A new Bulls empire

‘plenty of pace and quality putside sexton’ true tho. why is murray getting stick, while sexton could be the link that broke the chain?

Who will be Conor Murray’s successor?

erm speed of delivery is a problem yes, but due to the weakness in the forwards. if you look more in depth, you will find that yes, murray’s passing technique is worse than smith’s, but when compared to the rest of the world, he’s rather good, and the spin and range of the passes are prolific. why will you need power if your hands to the job. The pass is fast and accurate for all we need to be concerned.

doubt casey is the real deal. sorry but murray is srsly class

Conor Murray poor passing technique? https://giphy.com/gifs/Ik0o8A2CvqJBbIEwkM

Who will be Conor Murray’s successor?

Lamour to 15 and Conway to 14 for me. Byrne is very reliable, though he needs to challenge the line more.

like last year with sexton

consider the problem for otere black at the bulls. BB is a Blues 10. DC is a blues 10. How is he going to have game time?

Who will be Conor Murray’s successor?

they should create pathways to england and france, especially for casey and mcgrath.

Who will be Conor Murray’s successor?

connor murray with his passing and decision making, has been the cornerstone of the irish attack. his fitness may make the next world cup but ireland need back uos, of which the prime choice is probably gibson parkes, or perhaps casey

Who will be Conor Murray’s successor?

gibson parkes for me. Personally, guys like the byrnes, Casey, and Healy are not going to developm as world class 10s if they arent even regular starters at club level. Most of Ireland’s 2nd/3rd choice are not club starters and they should allow players to go overseas

how good is burns?

Who is Jonathan Sexton’s heir apparent?

u need consistency to operate at the highest level, and consistency is what the Boks won their World Cup on. If Carty can develop consistency, he is a cop over sexton

Who is Jonathan Sexton’s heir apparent?

Carty didnt even make this pundited squad

wasnt byrne the 15 who recollected and put in the killer pass?

Who is Jonathan Sexton’s heir apparent?

i think it’s their use of screens and decoys, also the confidence and proficiency of Pollard and Le Roux, and also De Allende. Munster are very lucky to have someone like De Allende.

consider
pollard’s passing:

add dan biggar and beauden barrett to that list of top tier 10s. I think johnny is very solid when on form but has his meltdowns and also has little spectacularity

This well constructed layering for a slide thru by harry byrne was impressive 2

Who is Jonathan Sexton’s heir apparent?

The saffas will play will bring increased creativity, and will develop multilayered attack patterns

Who is Jonathan Sexton’s heir apparent?

Ive rated carty highly. Harry Byrne and Jack Carty are perhaps more skilful than Johnny, but dont have his control and organisation. i have to take back my words on johnny being poor in temperament in my brutal chop on the Irish attack, but i dont rate johnny as up there with the likes of pollard, mounga, ford, ntamack, russell, sanchez
