Grow up Haj...you're supposed to be 31 and you're acting like a little brat? Insulting C.A Iversen for having a different opinion (albeit the better opinion) by calling him a 'nerd' is absolutley pointless.
We're here to discuss our opinions and provide proof, not to stoop as low as to start insulting other members when you can't provide a sufficient argument.
Did you even read any of his posts?
Haj made many good points about why Burke should not have been considered for a Wallaby recall (all of which i COMPLETELY agree with!)
I agree that the insults were not called for, but how can you say he didn't provide a sufficient argument?. No offence, but he made more sense than anyone in this thread.
There is not doubt that Burke's status as a Wallaby great is assured and I respect that. However, considering he wasn't good enough to get into the Wallabies team 4 years ago, and the fact that he left the Waratahs because he couldn't crack the starting XV, how could he honestly be considered for a spot in the RWC team?????....ridiculous!
Saying he brings Leadership is all well and good, but it's not exactly something we lack with guys like Gregan,Mortlock,Larkham,Vickerman,Sharpe etc etc... more impotantly, is the Burke of 2007 a better fullback than the current crop we have have playing in the S14 atm?......... the answer is NO!
If it turns out that Latham is not available for the RWC, it's clear who the obvious replacement should be - Cameron Shepherd
:cheers: - you know, the form outside back of the S14, the leading try scorer, the leading point scorer... yeah that guy!
....and behind Shep there's probably another 7 blokes i'd rather have playing fullback for the Wallabies over Burkey - Mitchell,Gerrard,SNK,AAC,Schifcofske,Hewat and Huxley spring to mind.
