  1. Not sure what is going on with this guy and why he is coping the lot but he is a real talent and we need to let him get on with the game. Looking forward to the day he makes it back to the test team – think he can be a real star but there seems to be a real nasty attitude towards this bloke from all and sundry. Real shame as we don’t have a lot of talent and he could be a real one.
