SHIT/GOOD™ Ratings: Autumn Internationals, Week 3
It's a bit late, but what did you expect? We only came out of retirement a couple of weeks back.
Andy Robinson - HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! That is all
The England Creativity Vacuum © - How many ways can you comment about the same problem that has occured with soul splintering regularity for a very, very, very long time? The only thing I can think to say right now is "bollocks". Will that do? I wouldn't mind if there was some clear plan for how this was going to be solved but I can't see that persevering with the defensively impressive yet offensively special needs Barritt at 12 fits such a plan. The headlines were all about Chris Robshaw's penalty decision, but that was mere window dressing to the main issue that England must solve. See you in 12 months when we'll be lamenting the same problem
Rhys Priestland - Unrecognisable from the quietly confident and efficient player of twelve months ago. Trouble is the other options are Biggar, who I'm yet to be convinced by at this level and Hook, who has fallen short of expectations so often he's like the last three The Killers albums in shorts.
Joe Launchbury - Classy performance against a bruising pack. Hopefully he won't fall into the Courtnay Lawes trap of believing his own press, trying too hard and and becoming formless penalty machine.
Jonathan Davies - This blog was one of the many who saw him as decent but limited a few years back. How srong we were. He is starting to ooze quality as a proper 13, Lions beckons?
Ma'a Nonu - Couldn't pass a few years ago, sorted that to become a proper 12. Past his best perhaps, but still the fulcrum of the NZ attack
