Seasons over. Blackness put in a good shift. 12 from 13 was it? The Ireland loss will get a lot of people down, but I'm the opposite. Good to give the lads something to brew on over the winter break, instead of having a break feeling like rugby gods, they will be reminded that they can't walk every game. Ireland were awesome, so now we need a level up again.
ALB, easily the find of the season, possibly the last 5 years.
Lurch and Whitelock. Beauty and the beast. Best on the planet, possibly our best ever. I reckon it's going to end that way.
BB. Best player on the planet. Kicking is a bit shite, but who gives a *fupp*.
Dagg. OMG. Dropped from the WC squad. Could've taken the coin, worked his ass off, and now he's our second most important back 3 player. Amazing comeback, what a professional attitude to go with his good nature. Stoked for him.
Coles. Best back wearing a number 2 on the planet. His running and passing game is top notch.
TJ. Finished the season as the undisputed 9 in black. Pretty bizarre how that all came about, but he's taken his chances big time.
Todd. That's not a misprint. He's a very good man to have in the squad. He's done well.
Crotty. Another to take his chances. He's only 28, he's going to be pushing SBW to decent levels next year.
Even Foster seems to have improved as a coach.(what you think FMYs, I know you loved him
). SH is the man.
Cruise. Nothing shit, nothing special.
Fekitoa. He should probably take the money now, though it'd be good to see him try and do a Dagg if he's dropped. He's not that bad, it's just next season we will have more on offer.
Savea. The guys form is an absolute mystery.
A.Smith. Mojo well and truly flushed down the public toilet. Started the season as our most important player in many people's eyes.
Squire. Maybe I expected to much from him.
Don't know enough to comment on the fatties. We never get murdered in the set piece, and they put in a shift round the park, but individually I don't really know. Moody needed a good whooping for his silly play in Chicago, but all in all they seem decent enough.
9/10 for me.
