ludez: Can guarantee daggs inclusion was mainly to get his 50 caps, abs are loyal. Same happened with Jane and mils. Sure he has been in decent form but in reality. Barrett could have played at 15
How can you guarantee this exactly? BB has never started a game at 15 in his life... coming on in the 15/20 mins to make an impact is not the same as starting a test and playing 60-80 minutes there... as BB has said himself.
I would expect we will see BB start a game or three at 15 for the Canes later in the year IF we're out of contention for the finals (which I hope we won't be lol).
They'd do the same as they did for Cory Jane and Nehe M-S to create a positional change - though there's was the other way around of course, FB's shifted to wings.
Watched JS closely in the game against the Landers here a couple of weeks back and he truly was extremely ordinary (ok, he was poor). I remember tweeting during the game he needs to get out of the gym and onto the road. He looks big and slow - not strong and fast which he was a year ago. He can do it, again - I just hope he does.
Also BB is first-five cover, if he had slotted straight into full back they would have needed to bring in bench cover for Cruden. BB has made that reserve position his own, he his had more impact, better games and been more versatile there for the AB's. He is destined to remain Bench cover sadly.
