Re: France are just not that good

i said in another post. Its France! They dont do consistency. Its a French habit to switch on and off and be casual. They will not win a world cup because they cant hold attention for 6 weeks. Someone prove me wrong. 2011 was their best chance as they had 2 loses in the pool stages and poor show in ...

Re: What does vunipola offer?

Ah, is this IKUR01's latest attempt at expressing his opinions after his "Why is AWJ so shit?" gambit? It took him four years to re-surface after that one blew up in his face! :D AWJ is ordinary mate. Good engine, high work rate. But every decent lock in the world has those things. No turnovers, av...

Re: What does vunipola offer?

He's been in poor form, but was a lot better this game I thought. In theory, he brings elite level physicality in tight channels. There's not many forwards out there who can commit 3 defenders to take him down and still make it over that gainline. He managed to do that a few times today. A prop wou...

This guy is like a prop playing at 8. Hes slow, not an option at lineout, hardly ever gets turnovers, shit in the wide channels, never passes so is suoer predictable and when was the last time he made a line break!
