Well, I like the way he has finally come round to playing for Quins, but I have to agree - he's not been value for money. Obviously Duncan Saville is willing to spend nearly 400K on a marquee player - I just think we can do better than the performances we've seen from Jamie Roberts. Sorry - I know that sounds brutal, but it's how I see it.

Completely agree DOK, & I'd even be a bit harsher and say that Robert's occasional good performances seem to coincide very neatly with the selection windows for either Lions tours, AIs or 6NS. But he has played well for us in the last 3 or 4 games so please may it continue.

I think we can definitely get better value for money, & with Saili and Sloan in the squad I'd rather spend the money on a 7 please. Just think that we can't afford to rely on Wallace and Ward as our 7s. The new laws around the tackle and ruck seem to have severely dented Wardy's impact as a 7. I also think Robshaw's pace which was never great is beginning to become more of a limiting factor on him being a 7 as time & injuries take their toll.

Lamb and White looked OK, but they will take a couple more years to develop, & poor old CLifford seems doomed to be injury prone.

All points above purely IMHO and up for civilised discussion(Sm100)
