There is truth is what you say, and I certainly wouldn't want him trying to take a drop kick from inside his own half. But centre field, just outside the twenty two? Either he wasn't thinking clearly, or he does not have enough confidence in himself.
If the later is true, then he should have waved Murphy up, rather than keeping the forwards going through phase after phase, risking knock ons or turn overs at each breakdown.
Couldn't have put it better.
