Radge, Schiz warning warning warning

No, no and thrice no. picard

Mata plays in a position where split second decisions often have a crucial bearing on the outcome. we love Mata because he often makes choices that no-one else in the ground sees. When they come off he has won the game for us. When they don't he has cost us the game. Except it is never that easy. It's a fifteen man game and everybody has an equal share in the result.
On another forum there was a hell of a lot of debate and analysis as to whether the Mental One lost us more than he won, or vice versa. The jury is still out. Let's not waste time stirring up those ashes.
Personally, I think he's Renzo's insurance against Henners losing heart at having to slug it out with Horne the younger for the number two spot and a handy player if we lose Hogg-Seymour-Jones-Hughes-Jackson to international duty.
I can't see him being the pivotal player he was: but then again he might just force himself into the starting line up and refuse to leave.

Graham is likely to become a faster and more skilful version of Hoyland in the not to distant future. He scored another wonder try for Hawick this weekend that he had no right to.

If you assume that there are two types of wing, small speedy ones and big bruisers, then unfortunately Tom Brown falls between the two camps, neither very big and powerful nor particularly skilful.

VDM and Farndale and Harries tick the big fast and powerful boxes and Fife is a reasonable mixture of both.

If everyone is fit and firing there is going to be an awful lot of competition for places and at the end of the season someone is going to miss out.

4:55 onwards - some terrible tackling but a great finish!

Absolutely amazing to see my old club (Marr) in the Prem.

When I wore that purple jersey it was made of heavyweightcotton and absorbed water like a sponge. You came off the field 2 stones heavier than when you went onto it.

Price offers the pace, guile and delivery without the lunacy. Lunacy can win games but Niko can lose you games just as quick as he can win them.

Think he'll be played on the wing as opposed to Scrum Half?


What games did he manage to lose for us exactly ?

The pro12 final 3 years ago against Leinster Matawalu threw that game away for you. Absolute suicide.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/27631785

"Niko Matawalu, on for the injured Cusiter, battled on to try to give his side a spark, but his ill-judged chip-kick was gathered by Eoin Reddan and, with a huge overlap out wide, D'Arcy got in on the act with a try of his own."

The score was 17-12 at this point. After that Leinster's tails were up and it was all over.

Other articles online are written in the same way.

"The exuberance of the Fijians cost Glasgow further Nakarawa’s offloads, and Niko’s darts. Leinster read them, tackled them, turned them over. By the time Kirchner took his second try, and D’Arcy took his with 5 mins to go, Glasgow were out on their feet and looking a little lost."

"The top marks for a Glasgow player would go to Chris Cusiter, who had probably his best half of rugby in years. Taking him off just after half time (if not an injury substitution) was criminal and Glasgow lost much of their direction after that"

SRU and BT have signed a sponsorship agreement through to 2021. No idea on numbers, but been ok so far

We were well beaten across the park that day Radge but I understand the point that you're making.

Glasgow's game has matured and I think that Niko will be an 'in case of emergency, break glass' option for Rennie.

As I said earlier George, we can easily have Aldi and Henners on international duty. This leaves George Horne as first choice scrum half. Shocked
Now I think the lad is quite special, but I'm not sure he's ready for that responsibility yet.
Similarly, we could see Hogg-Jackson-Seymour-Jones-Hughes all called up by Toonie. (plus Sarto off to Italy) In which case another winger isn't exactly a luxury. Mind you that could give us a back three of Nairn-Mata-Massaga. I think that could be worth the admission money alone.

On a similar note....
I was watching the Team Of The Decade discussion on Warriors TV. Two interesting comments;
Big Al reckons that when choosing players for this team Leone MUST be considered as a back row. laughing
Secondly, when Hoggy was asked who the most inspirational player has been during his time at the club he replied, "Chris Cusiter".

We need a new ongoing banter thread if someone could do the honours!

Thread 18 - X-rated?

On the other hand it is your chance to prove us all wrong and silence all our jokes about how old and decrepit you are when it comes to technology!

Don't worry Jim, you won't need to use the quote function once.

Saw it Jimbo my son. Dougie McCrea is a cracking guy and a true Warrior. Sunk a load of money into GWs for 10 years now clap clap clap

Aye the bit when Hoggy said Chris Cusiter took me by surprise. I was expecting Gregor T or AK. Big Al couldn't resist retorting as best fullback - Bernie Stortoni
