He is much more physical than Richie and has a better pass. What he doesn't have is experience and when he is in Wales training camp then he is not playing and when he doesn't play he gets a bit hesitant. Richie is at his best when there is a bit more space around and players are tired as he then ups the tempo. Richie is on good form at the moment but he was dire at the beginning of the season. Lloyd is a better technical scrum half and will turn into a great scrum half but young players need experience and you can't coach that they have to get it.
What kind of reply was that to a decent post from ystradblue ?
Williams has been poor since his cameo performances in the WC.
Cant deny He had a poor game again last night.
He plays headless rugby, running into blind alleys, needless kicking, poor decision making and his overall reading of the game is not good enough.
Williams has had the fortune of starting behind our strongest pack for most of his games.
Unlike Rees, as you claim "was dire at beginning of season", perhaps because he was playing behind a pack that was getting hammered in most games.
Last night without Warby, Melon and Bradley in front of him, lloyd looked clueless.
When Rees came-on he gave stability and control.
The pupil playing the 1st half and the tutor playing the 2nd half.
That is why mostly lloyd usually gets the shepherds crook mostly early in the 2nd half.
You said he gets a bit hesitant.
Dont make me laugh !
Its called confidence, how does everyone else manage?
Having a good pass is not essential for a 9, just look at Mike Phillips.
You say lloyd is a better technical 9, Please explain ?
Because i aint seen nothing technical from him as of yet.
Will agree he will be a good player in time( he is getting enough pushing), but he is not as good as some proclaim at the moment!
All i hope is that Rees plays in the HC against Leinster !!!!!!!!!!!
