    as some have said, Jordie is 21 and has a a huge frame compared to his brother, and comp[arable to other barrett. He can bulk up easily and still retain that speed, add in that height etc he would be suited in the mid field as well. Thatg height and speed is good in the full back of course but he seem to lack that slippery need that Ben Smith have and the sheer burst that DMAC has as well. Still long way for him to develop

    BB had a better kicking % than both Mo'unga and DMac (as well as many other good kickers) in super rugby. His goal kicking improved a lot this year but he's still going to have off nights just like every other kicker.

    Yeah, think BBs goal kicking in the comp was about 75% so was kicking over 6 out of every 8, that's a pretty good percentage.

    Was 82% (42/51) so yeah very good. Mo'unga and DMac were both around 77%

    Of course experience counts... but Jordie is normally a good decision maker in real pressure situations, this year though he's had a bit of a howler composure wise for Canes & ABs, just needs to refocus again so should be much better in our last few matches.

    When You factor in that some kicks are taken from the sideline, others really long ones etc, also at times matches are played in strong winds or wet conditions that 82% by BB was excellent... really good percentage rate from Mo'unga & McKenzie too.
