itxtme:One thing is that if you pick purely on form, you lose team culture. A good team will manage the players who aren't at their best, give them support and space to improve and reap the benefits.
Give me rational reasoning behind why he should go to RWC? No we cant pick purely on form but you cant pick people purely on the fact that they might one day (soon hopefully) come back into any in-cling of form...
Good grief this was covered including pictures explaining it, but your mind is made up and that's that!
If Dagg had made this tackle, which resulted in try, knocked himself out, you'd be all over him for it, but Ben Smith doesn't stop the try, gets knocked out and he is a hero?
I found a youtube video of the AB's tries of 2013, and in a LOT of the tries that Ben Smith scores ON THE WING, the pass that allows him over the try line was by Dagg who drew attackers and handed a perfectly placed pass to Smith.
No doubt that will be poo poo'd too.
