Now that’s one hunch I hope comes to something inatthebreakdown, he is powerful, fast, and knows where the white line is.

I've got a similar hunch (albeit completely uniformed), that we'll be getting a kiwi winger; however I was thinking of Frank Halai because of the Blues connection.

That said I would be happy with either...

Just had a look at the Youtube Video and see that he already wears a shirt with BRIZ on it.

Plays R.Wing, centre, full back and sub.

Does he pass or tackle?

Halai is already familiar with Thretton Palamo

Brrr! I had almost managed to put the memory of Palamo behind me (Sm10)

I would hope that he is au fait with both disciplines.

I would too tbe, the point I'm making (not very well) is that these self promotion video's show the glamorous fancy stuff, rarely the everyday hard work

Just have a look at Palamo's promotion video and it looks pretty good but, as we discovered, he lacked understanding of positioning, was often poorly positioned for defence, didn't pass etc.

Actually, to go off on a tangent, I think Palamo could be a useful player if he had been/was coached better, he's got a good physical presence, is fast and has a thumping tackle (when employed).

I was trying to be funny.

I agree with these promotional videos. I imagine you could make a one minute film of anyone's rugby look good with selected extracts.

I would imagine you could make a video of Palamo in a Bris shirt that makes him look really good, as he has done some good stuff, and there are many elements of a good player in there. I wonder if they ever thought about getting Raihana to do some 1-1 intensive session with him?

But you could also make a horror show significantly longer. As said above, the promo videos are of very little value.

The person mentioned in the original post actually has about a 5 minute video
Hence his ability
I would have a 5 second one!

I believe this heavily dependent upon the recipient being able to absorb what is being imparted.

Nice speculation but we can have as many classy players behind the scrum as we want (and we have a few already) but it'll be no use if they don't get the ball. It's classy front 5 forwards we need (and we have barely 1 as present).

Well Afoa, Vui and Thacker for starters but I get your point and agree with you. I'm sure more are on the way
