A much better player than many gave him credit for. Intelligent, tough, skilful and a really good reader of the game. Remind me in some ways of Dean. I think he'll make an excellent coach.

I rate him very highly but donít see his game as comparable to Deanís ( whoís is?). He attracted a lot of criticism for what he wasnít and at times this blinkered people to what he actually did.

Agreed.

Played the game he was instructed to play and was versatile enough to play a different game for us than that he was asked to play in a national shirt.

We rarely lost scrum ball, even bad scrum ball, with him at no. 8.

'Footballing' skills also allowed him to kick the winning penalty in the 2009 H.C Cardiff semi final shootout!

I wonder if any other player can claim to have won a match in such a fashion? Never heard of it.

Solid player, good club man, really decent bloke - good luck to him in the next stage of his career.
