There's an old saying that form is temporary but class is permanent. Perhaps it could also be a truism that performing well in one competition (Super Rugby, Top 14, Pro 14 etc) doesn't guarantee performing well in the Premiership. Toby has already made a few comments about the game as he experienced it in France compared to the AP.
It didn't quite work for Mike with us but that's the nature of sport sometimes. To his credit, he never hid during games and seeing him at A games he seemed a popular member of the squad.
It was always going to be difficult for him to fill the void that Gopperth left, as it was for JG to fill the one Jonny left.Hope he finishes his career in a blaze of glory.
