Return to form
Last night featured a spectacular return to personal form in the touch footy. We won 10-3. I hadn't played since the Grand Final due to a combination of late-night games and illness, so it was good to have a trot. Got a few and set up a few in that game - but conceded one, as well. :-(
Interesting to read the speculation about George Gregan's place in the Wallabies after some ordinary form. His game as been waaay off recently. When the Wallabies replaced him with Chris Whittaker, the forwards started to get over the advantage line last Saturday night. But he played this badly just before the 2003 World Cup and look what happened there ...
I'm sure Jake White's right - Gregan's a champion and he'll come back. He probably just needs to re-focus on his role as a halfback instead of being swamped by the other things the captain has to do.Posted by Hughie at August 18, 2005 9:56 AM
