OB - England seem to follow the same paradigm - the midfield once flood went off was 3 x players under 21. Youngs & Goode are under 25 too and some of the loose forwards in the squad are also relatively young.
Quote:David in the Hamptons Stand
Experience is critical in learning, so, natural talent might get you picked for the big occasion but experience might be valuable in showing you how to handle the big occasion. Perhaps the logical conclusion is that young players should be invested in and given opportunities to experience pressure at the top level, to aid them in applying their skills and talents.
