I would have BR and BO ahead of Smith and Nonu by a nose.

Bruce Robertson was majestic, aristocratic, elegant… Yes, I am talking about a rugby player!

Yes all good players. Great tour to follow that one.

I wrote another article a while ago where I picked McCaw as the flanker, but realise now it was a mistake. It should have been Jones.

Smokin Joe was also a good , popular player. I liked him. Tough, great tackler, good service to wings. Still go with BR though.

Thorne from the very little I saw of him was a very good player. I believe he was before BR not after?

Injuries got in the way of many good players, who knows what he could have produced.

Can understand that.

O’Connor, was a great player.
And yes Conrad Smith was the closest in style to BR.

Now there’s a discussion, BR and Osborne or Smith and Nonu?

Yes it seemed it was a small minority including Eric Watson who thought BR had a defensive weakness.

When it comes to rugby the memories seem greater than present day. Will people in 20 years look back fondly on today’s players? I don’t know.

Has there been a feistier All Black than Grant Batty?

I believe it was Tom David he had a scrap with in the Barbarians game!

Its a pleasure.

Let’s just say I was more suited to half back than lock!

Thanks for the info

People get a shock when small men fight back and can’t handle it, therefore coming up with your description.

Correct.

Was Ian 'Kirky' Kirkpatrick rugby's greatest try-scoring flanker?

You know what happens when favouritism creeps in? It doesn’t do anyone any good.

The Roar would have the answers to that. A good rugby player does not always make a good coach and the same goes for writing. What if the guy can’t spell, use good grammar, put constructed thoughts onto paper etc? And I will check on this, but to move up the ladder you have to write articles not just comment? It’s very easy to be critical of everyone else but maybe some should try writing something?

Was Ian 'Kirky' Kirkpatrick rugby's greatest try-scoring flanker?

Yes and he was known for a rather good try too.

Well summed up.

The Roar will have a better idea, but I believe you have to actually write an article first.

Good thing the article wasn’t about how good a captain he was.

Was Ian 'Kirky' Kirkpatrick rugby's greatest try-scoring flanker?

Didn’t the All Black players say they would discontinue the tour if Murdoch was sent home, but Keith asked them to carry on and he would leave?
Anyway, wasn’t Kirky a fantastic player?, that try is one of the best you will see. I can watch that try a million times.
