Not sure if sarcastic or not about QC lol, but i think he's come along way from the turnstile he used to be.I feel bad for Kurtley though, he really did have a shocker, but then so did the AB's by their standards... Next game AB's will put 40 on us i reckon. We've lost Pocock too, and if Genia insists on this ridiculous slow ball feed from the ruck, it aint gonna matter if our centres make any line breaks cause the AB's defense will be back and ready to intercept the next phase every time....
sarcastic :P i'll admit, he's got some great skills and can be fantastic with the ball in hand but one big or late hit throws him off his game completely and the rest of the backline suffers for it. not a good attribute to have at 10...at least not at international level. that said, i'd love to be proven wrong. it's unforunate he was injured so badly because i think he just needs a solid off-season to work on his defence.
massive loss with pocock. his ball pilfering skills are unbelievable. now is the time for hooper to step up.
and completely agree with genia. He commands the piggy ball so well and there's nothing wrong with slowing things down but wallabies backline absolutely flourishes with quick ball. he needs to let loose more often.
i say bring QC but start on the bench. if Beale has another shocker by half time, QC 10, Barnes 12, Drew Mitchell 14 and AAC 15. I could see Beale having a blinder in the next game though.
