Strengths:

A dev­as­tat­ing ball car­rier who not only gets over the ad­van­tage line with ease but pos­sesses the skill sets usu­ally re­served for those with dou­ble fig­ures on their backs. He’s worth his weight amongst the for­wards, as he is not scared to do some of the don­key work and is in­valu­able with his lead­er­ship skills and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Weak­nesses:

A man with over a 100 Tests and Su­per Rugby caps hardly has any weak­nesses and judg­ing by his con­tri­bu­tion to the suc­cess of fran­chise and coun­try, those weak­nesses are well masked. Keep the ball away from him and the rest of the Cru­saders team and it will come as a sur­prise that he was on the field af­ter 80 min­utes.
