At least Fluffbert managed to get a Lion's cap before his career went south.

I often thought about him. I think he can come good but he has some serious learning to do like try add in a bit of James Lowe to his game, pop up in unstructured plays and use his size and power to attack blind shoulders. He could be so much more destructive. But he’ll never an elusive speedster winger but the lad can finish he just needs to evolve his game.

It's two years now that he's been specialising in stepping out of the defensive line to provide text book doglegs for opponents to work through. He's reached art form level.

Being stepped in a phonebox twice by your opposite number for tries in the same half must be demotivating as hell, even if he's one of the best in the world. Adding to that by missing a tackle for one of the other tries meant that it ended up being a deeply forgettable game for him.

He also knocked on the ball 3 or 4 times and blindly ran into the Toulouse defence off first phase and got turned over straightaway. And there was the attempted chip and chase when the ball didn’t clear the Toulouse player’s belly button.
I’m probably forgetting a few other incidents. I’m trying my best to pretend that yesterday didn’t happen.
