Discussing :: Is Colin Slade the Back-up 1st Five for Daniel Carter?


@Peter I totally agree yes everyone is saying he still has potential and time will tell and he needs more game time but....at what cost for the team and the RWC we need our best team on there not someone who has the potential we need performance.....and I was being nice when I said put Slade on the bench.....but in the playoffs if he is no good then he shouldn't be picked...


I remember when Dan Carter joined the All Blacks. He played brilliantly right from the get go. An instant star. Colin Slade stuffed up at the beginning of the Japan game, but he really brought it back as the game progressed. I think we've just been spoilt by Dan, and we're expecting Colin to be as good as him. It's just not going to happen. As a goal kicker, I think he'll do us proud eventually.
