I too enjoyed the Welsh Cnetres comment broonie. Not all whistles too far above my head, although quite a bit does.
He sounds like he wil fit the bill at No8. From our senior academy broonie - who do you see as potential 8's? Nuttley isn't but I am not sure about some of the other names mentioned above.
To me the fact that No8 is such a pivotal role and needs experience showed in the flawed England WC campaign. The Hask played the best I have seen him but he made a mess of several things that are key to an 8. Easter on the other hand was as slow as ever - but he did do the No8 things and so we looked more balanced.
