Fabulous, all he needs is 90 metres to hit speed.
He'll be sweet if he starts his kick returns from Mary Street...

I fully agree with Yoss - and until we are mentally tough enough to properly put teams to the sword we won't be in the same league of great teams.

This is not just a judgement of the last weekend but an observation over time.

Not taking too much away from it. There were mitigating circumstances due to the severity of Chris' injury so I don't believe we will see them fall apart like that again this year.

We were already home and hosed, yeah we let in a couple of cheap tries at the end, but when the backline had been reshuffled to give Moltzen time in the #1 and to create stop-gaps in the left hand side, a couple of consolation tries would have always been on the cards.

I firmly believe that if Lawrence stayed on the field, we would have been lucky to let in one of those three. Watching a teammate sustain a serious injury such as Lawrence would have hit them like a truck. You may call that ill mental preparation, but I think they will be better for it.

Don't think Sheens would have swapped Wade Mac and Moltzen if the game was on the line.
