If you let him in a try each game, you better be scoring 2. His contributions so far a fresh air on a grunbber, 1 half decent run and yet again buying a simple dummy.
A 2 on 1 you absolute spoofer. :lol: :lol:
Fullback always takes the man.

Welcome to rugby though, always nice to have fellas new to the game join up
True enough Balcony Bob was world famous for his tackling
Whataboutery now.

He buy many dummies did he? :lol:

Maybe we should be mad and try an actual fullback at 15.

It's an easy switch - he's currently playing on the wing.

Great pass Stockdale.

There's this thing other teams do in the redzone called a latch.

I'd like to see us try it.

Just set up another score he must be in the team

Have ypu ever played rugby, you smash the man, force him to pass if he puts it away fair enough not your fault. To buy the same dummy twice in 2 games is unforgivable.
And had he smashed the man and the last went to the 9 for a run in no doubt you and that other retard jumper would still have said it was his fault
I look forward to the day he smashes someone in defence, give me Lowry as last defender before the new turnstiles

Lowry looks the real deal and as brave as anyone for a wee lad but I think he'll be too small for international rugby

Or maybe just keep him on the wing, where he can at least learn to defend with a line as his friend.

There's no doubt he is a great attacker, but moving him about isn't going to fix the defensive issues that we already knew about.

Put Keenan at fullback and Stockdale back on the wing.

I’m not claiming otherwise
It’s dipshits like jumper who will find fault if he has his socks pulled up the wrong way
He just takes me down to his moronic level
I apologise

So your point Willie is that a fullback shouldn't buy the dummy? I'm glad you agree with us.

If it was against you, you'd want it called forward.

No you wouldn't. You would talk shot about it and pretend it mattered but it would still be bullshit
