I reckon that super coach and alike has changed perceptions of what a forward does, it is not every bodies job to make 15-20 hit ups and 40 tackles.

In general your back 3 (fullback, wingers) and middle 3 (props and lock) bash the ball up the middle on the first 3 or 4 tackles, edge runners like Blair are there do attack the edges and cause damage by either hitting holes or off loading, Blair as done this a number of times this year. He wont end up with huge numbers.

As people have said putting pressure on kicks, running decoys, pushing up on the inside go unrewarded on the stat sheet, but play a huge role in winning games, Blair does all this well. If it wasnt for the reported big price tag, we'd all be happy with his performance, but his score card is continually marked harder than others due to the $500K that is bandied about.
