They've all developed over 4/5 years. We are starting the post World Cup rebuild.I don't think we do have a backline to score 35+ points in a international.
We don't have the size of the fijian backline to play like them
We don't have the pack of Ireland and France to have backs that play like that.
France play exciting rugby but have an amazing pack to back them up.
We don't have the skillset and balance of the NZ backline
We need our pack do be able to be on par with at least 9/10 International teams before thinking of playing fast and loose
There are pieces of the jigsaw there....some already developed and some that are very rough diamonds..so it will take time. But a pack just starting with Underhill, Martin, Earl is going to have a hard edge to it..and be explosive...
We need to develop our own style not just copy others...but its critical now that we develop an attack...
