Exeter: From rugby obscurity to kings of Europe

Thanks AH, great article, are you profiling all the top european clubs?

That’s really good in blooding youth . I thought they played their A Team in the Pro 14 final?

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

You mean at junior level? I thought it was Sexton/Ross – Ringrose- Henshaw

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

Sorry i dont watch much irish rugby, but im sure they could try to blood new 10s with a dual pivot and conway/earls at 15. Conway stepped in at first receiver at points in the 6N

Japan, back next year

How did Argentina claim a historical win over the All Blacks?

No it is not. Come to think of this, Pumas are a better team than the Wallabies(In thanks to their pack, centres, and Super Sanchez), play better than the Wallabies and deserve a better result

What does a 15-all draw mean for Argentina?

In 2019, the Wallabies had triple pivots. Main pivot in Lealifano and wider distributors in Beale & JOC

Sam Cane aint slow hARRY.

He is QC but with common sense. Why i believe the ABs backline is inconsistent? No world-class 12 and a mere distributor in Goodhue, ALB not in the right position, or if he is he does not have the right midfield partner, no wide channel threat cos they removed Ben Smith from fullback and brought in BB/Dmac, and also less innovation from Foster. Mo’unga has potential and performance.

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

Jordie is a FB, not a winger. Dmac at 15 for me.

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

👎 It’s Mounga-Dmac. Foster is trying to have his Mounga cake and eat his Barrett cake. Inconsistenceis and mistakes-i watched full games mind you, and i dont see him dropping the ball often. a missed linekick or two but still

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

My article was quite long so i think he got cropped. Anyways, here it is. Johnny May played brilliantly with that X-factor and speed his possesses, certainly in the contention for being the fastest wing in the world. A go-to for England.

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

He is a competent defender, not great but decent enough

Tactical trends: The dual pivot

Surprise he only missed4 tackles last year in the WC and only made one tackle.

Tactical trends: The dual pivot

Kurtley is a competent tackler, not excellent, but decent and could floor people in 2018, QC(still way better than Foley), and Folau(the most all-rounded but populism in RA and Castle chased him away.

Tactical trends: The dual pivot

Some potential big bulls that have been lost-Folau, QC, Beale

Tactical trends: The dual pivot

Rennie is no clown. It is just that the current Wallaby team does not have the kind of classy playmaking and linebreaking backs to do what he wants( ie Beale(one of my favourite Wallabies ever, and im no wALLABY FAN), Cooper, Folau, Kerevi _

Tactical trends: The dual pivot

Fair point on Lowe. But a talent he is. Conway is practically Ireland’s best everything-best runner, best passer, fastest guy. Anyone considered him at FB?

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

I mentioned him but it got cropped, perhaps by an error or shortening of my article

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

Sorry mate. He only playd one test IMO i wouldnt put him there, great talent tho he is.

Dream XV 2020: Back three of the year

I think it is so they can primarily shut off the main playmaking threat, and kill the best counterattacker. Given Wille’s vision, i think at the points he dropped the abll, he could have thought of too much too soon.

Willie Le Roux is no weak link for the Springboks
