Thinking about the 10-12 combinations in the Top 14 I think Montpellier have the goods. Trinh-duc and Fernández have combined really well and to me have been the best partnership in the comp.

Thoughts?

Trinh Duc is awesome. He already outclassed all the other fly half during the 6N (especially the overrated Flood). He's incredibly talented, has one of the strongest defence of the Top14, he's attacking the line like no one else and he has a very good foot.

The only reason he's not a superstar like Sexton or Flood is because he's playing with a 2nd division team, Montpellier, that has done nothing on the European scene.

When did Trinh duc outclass Sexton? Also I think the reason Trinh Duc is not thought to be in the same class as Flood or Sexton is because he doesn't place kick, I thinkplace kicking is what alot of people think about when rating out-halves. Look at Stephan Larkam, He was a great playe but was never seen in the same class as Mehrtens/Wilkinson because he didn't kick.

100% Agree with you, and this is stupid, as long as there's someone else who can kick in the team, who cares if it's the n10 or not ? There are many scrum halves who are place kicking in France (Parra, Yachvili, Dupuy,...)

To answer your first question, it was during this year 6N.

mmm Maybe Wilko... more than Bernie he has place kicking and more solid defence. Stop.

Stephen Larkham is the 3d best flyhalf of the last 10-12 years.
