Thought Naki player Blade Thomson was pretty unlucky.
On our 3 older players McCaw, Carter & Mealamu… would of only selected McCaw,
he’s shown he can play the whole game test after test & is still playing well at test level, Mealamu played well in that whole game against S.A, just can’t see him doing it game after game at this level & Carter’s too big a risk, if he starts there’s every chance he’ll come off with a leg injury early in the first half, which would then leave us without cover at 10 on the bench.
McCaw would have to go down as our best player ever… was watching one of the ITM Cup matches about 3 weeks ago & a former player was telling the sky commentator that when he was playing with McCaw in the under 20 stuff all the team mates use to call him ‘ 3rd lung ‘ sounds about right, the bloke has an amazing engine.
