Consider yourself very fortunate - regardless of foolish Sale fans who don't rate Luther (they don't know anything). He is an exceptional talent overlooked and misused by the long gone Hanks.
Burrell will do very well for you if he is given an opportunity, I rate him as an excellent centre who can play on the wing, he has great pace, can cut through defenses, great strength and ball handling skills. Defensively against sarries the entire team were Sh*te at at times, so for Stevene to single out Burrell is idiocy. Shame that Sale could not develop this and make him the great player that he will prove to be.
Good luck and best wishes.
watch the highlights mate, I was there and watched him get turned inside out by Wyles and Hodgson tempt him out of the line too easily and then put his opposite number into space. Yes the performance was rubbish but Sarries did their homework on us defensively targetting Miller with the high ball and our outside centre channel. Luther comes out of the line too early quite a lot and gets picked off. When he does get to his man he doesn't use his shoulder in the tackle often enough and is all arms when tackling and therefore is often shaken off and his opposite number can offload.
Going forward he is very good, has pace and power and hits the line hard. I thought he would be really good signing for Sale from what I had seen of him going forward with ball in hand at Leeds and I could never understand why Back didn't start him more last year.
Having had him at Sale this season I can see why, its due to concerns about his defence, that can be the only reason. Or are you saying both Neil Back and Tony Hanks/ Steve Diamond are wrong for not selecting him more often?? Ask any other Sale fan about Luther's defence and I bet they will say the same.
We have enough defensive issues to deal with next season with having Cipriani aka turnstile defending the 10 channel next season, whoever stands in the centre needs to be top notch defensively.
