    Al Baxter

    I'm sure you all know my opinion of Al Baxter by now however, the thing I find amazing is that you virtually never find a word of support for him anywhere!
    Yet he is consistently getting selected as a starting Test Prop by John Connelly.
    What is it that Knuckles sees that we mere mortals cannot?
    This is the Prop that was singled out for those crucial penalties last Spring Tour, who cannot maintain a single decent engagement and who was patted on the head by a LOSING Italian Prop last weekend and did not respond.
    The only time you see any passion from him is when he huffs and puffs at the National Anthem or complains to a Ref for penalizing him.
    He consistently takes the easy option, usually to the detriment of the phase, in re-engaging rucks and mauls rather than finding the correct point of re-entry.
    He brings nothing to the scrum.
    He brings nothing to the lineout.
    He brings nothing to the rucks.
    He brings nothing to the mauls.
    He brings nothing to the loose play.
    He is a National disgrace in the tight and yet he is still picked.
    Please, somebody...anybody....give me a good argument in defence of why he is even on this Tour, let alone allowed to continually be sent back into the firing line as such a weak link for opposition Coaches to focus on?

    I think that Big Al deserves 2 more shots at proving himself as an International Prop......once this weekend against the Irish (oh how I love my Guinness) and more importantly next weekend against the Scots.....!!!!!

    Give the lad a break....he's only doing his best!!!

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.

    Dump him, he ain't great and he ain't going to get any better. At least give someone like Benn Robinson a chance and have Benn/Greg-o set for 2007.
