itxtme: No the selection of a RWC team should not be decided on the water boy defusing a punch up.. Yes dumb, but the conclusions you have reached based on this is lunacy. When has he had problems with anger? He has had issues this season with fringe play, and being repeatedly penalised.
When I have made similarly "biased" comments about Dagg you have accused me of denial. Perhaps it's a time for you to take a look in the mirror. Do we need "dumb" players at the RWC when there are equally good players who aren't "dumb" (I think you are being incredibly generous), fit and ready to go? What does he add that someone else couldn't? It's not like
with Coles where there are next to no other players at his level. Vito did an outstanding job last weekend, and played well for the Hurricanes all season. If form is important to you, which it certainly seems to be, Messam wouldn't be included.
PS Daggs rapping is about as good as his form this year. Given your comment about the last 2 weeks, and and the fact he hasnt played in those 2 weeks, the only reasonable conclusion is that you have realised he has been surpassed by other players. Welcome to the sane train.
Haters gonna hate. Let me know when you can do better.
I'm still hopeful for Dagg being at the RWC, but if he doesn't go, life will go on. My back three would still be Savea, Dagg and Ben Smith. I'd rather have Ben Smith on the right wing than NMS esp for bigger games, even though NMS has had a few great games for the AB's so far. I don't read much into the fact he didn't play the last 2 weeks, otherwise Soponga would be written off too.
I'm still keen to see Stats for Dagg for the SR15 but I can't find anything. Especially around missed tackles etc.If you can find some, I'd honestly quite like to see them (I would like to see that for lots of players actually).
