The likes of Moa and Lynn in the wider squads must be insulting to them...

I think in Moa's case he only has himself to blame by asking to be put in the draft

Smylie is a decent enough player but who knows which way Lam would've gone if Moa had stayed put. In the end he didnt even give himself a chance.

He asked to go to the draft? News to me...

Suppose he would've felt pretty put out at Mathewson transferring into the region though...

Yea I guess so. But he still should've backed himself to compete for the spot I would've thought.

I heard there may have been personal issues too, as in wanting to maybe get out of Auckland for a bit. Didnt he get in trouble a while back for chucking a bottle or somthing?

Yeah he had some issues with that - last thing I'd heard about him was that he didn't want to play for the Juniors because he wanted to be able to play for Tonga...

He's overrated IMO - people were going on about how great he was, but I just constantly saw him screwing up for the Lions - especially on defence.
