Meyer obsessed with size

This debate regarding does size matter, has been going on for too long.

Heineke likes big players, he especially wants his loose Forwards to be big, likely for him he found a fetcher in Flow that’s both a great fetcher and big and strong.

But that’s not where it stops, he also wants his backs to be big, that’s why there is no place for Geo Aplon and so on.

No matter what the guys do on the pitch, they just will never be big enough in size for him, that story that he is conceding to many penalties is a smoke screen.

Brussow is a legend, he has never lost a test against the All Blacks, and there is a reason for that, he has also never played a bad Test For the Boks.

The reason the Stomers is struggling at the moment is for that fact, they don’t have an out an out Fetcher in the 6 jersey, yes they have good ball Runners, and now and again Duane steels a ball for them, but you put a Heinrich Brussow in that Team and it will be a deferent Ball game.

A fetcher not only turns possession around, they also slow the ball down so your defence can reline.

Get over this obsession with big Guys, we have enough of them, we need to combine the big guys with the X factor players, and most of them come in small packaging.
