And our attack was a disorganised mess. **** him off.

Case closed.
Don't disagree with any of that.

I just noted that he finally used his relatively big frame to actually hit hard in defence, often on big forwards. Even Joey was surprised to see that it was Boyd who upended one of the Cows through the middle.

It was more the quality of those tackles tbh. I’m not even a fan, I just wanted to give some credit for the good stuff that I actually did see (for a change).
There was certainly some effort in some of them, but it was still below par for someone with the experience he has in the game.

At least he's not falling over at every tackle attempt now, so there is that.

If you think this year has been bad, wait till he progresses to a Zimmer frame next year and then a wheely walker in 2021, he'll be mobile (well, maybe not so much), agile (compared to a 95 year old) and hostile (but only to reporters).

I do think he’d be very serviceable as a centre based on his frontline defence and passing game. The reason he’s making no meters is because he’s feeding on immediately. Plus it’ll suit his lack of a kicking game.

N.B. I say this because I’m resigned to him being in the side. No point with wishful thinking.

But he isnt really feeding the ball on immediately either. He touched the ball 13 times last night. 13 times! 13 times as a half. Our most senior player on the field! That is completely unacceptable.

Well, use your math skills. If he touched the ball thirteen times, making 1m from 1 run, 12 other times he’s obviously feeding the ball on...

I may have misspoke. My point was, if he was getting the ball and feeding the backline frequently, at least there would be some point, but the left outside backs saw bugger all ball, but that would have meant shiba-sucky may have got, and dropped the ball so i dont know my point anymore. All i know is it really sucks being shit and knowing that we are stuck for another 1-2 years.

We’d all prefer the latter.
Well yes...but, his exit should be staged from the wing position. Darius is a "catch & fall" specialist. Highest try scorer in the history of SOO.......from the wing position.

Only because all the work was done for him by the class of Inglis. We don’t have that luxury.
