    Apparently according to a paragraph in some obscure French newspaper.

    I hear he plays for the Bulls down in land of the eternal Nandos franchise, whats he like? Good ball carrier? What kind of leader is he? Worth the FAT WADS OF RAAAAND we're paying for him?

    + He always gives 100%

    - The 100% he gives isn't really that good...

    I did say we needed a quality back row...

    Would you therefore say that his 100% would be, say, 95% in HRH Richard Hill (AKA GOD) money?

    Depends if you would pay that much for a benchwarmer...

    Oh don't worry, we always have space for benchwarmers...

    If this is the fella who wears the white scrum-cap I really rate him. When South Africa sent their weakened side to play the away matches in the Tri-Nations last year, he was one of the stand-out players for me.
    Jer1cho would you honestly believe him to be a benchwarmer when he has played all of the seven rounds for the Bulls so far and has made the second most points for the Bulls in the testrugby.com Fantasty Super 14 Game, with 1,140?

    Is he a 7 or a 6? (in English money, not wrong-way-round south african)

    Sarries badly need a 7.

    You could even say that South African backrowers are all at sixes and sevens...

    I'll get my coat.

    perfect. I hope they even pay for his 1st class ticket to Heathrow.

    Yeah, he is a solid player, but i dont know, to me he just isnt quite there. And he is getting older, but stlll, he is pretty reliable when it comes to defence. Not the best ball stealer, but makes his contribution. I just think that because SA have the best loosies in the world (IMHO) he didnt have a real chance.

    I totally agree with Jer1cho on this one.
    He is a solid player, who gives everything he has EVERY game but he does seem to just make up the numbers in alot of matches.

    Consistent and reliable, but no X-factor.

    IMO he plays a similar game to Juan Smith, but not as effectively.
    He does seem to take alot of first phase ball with the Bulls and hits it up well, he's a decent ball carrier.
    I have a feeling the conditions in the NH will complement his style of play.
