IMO RodneySo'oialo is no longer a number8. He bulked up too much and its changed the dynamics of his body. he's trying to play like he did but thats impossible now as he's too bulky

now i'm a So'oialo fan, he has a massive work load and a good rugby brain, but if he's to stay an allblack he needs to reinvent himself

He'd be better suited to 6 and working on putting in some big hits. he could get some tips from Jerry

As much as I respect the man, the game's outgrown him and he's just gotten too old to keep up (same boat as rocket-man). I don't see him making the ABs at all on his current form, sad as that is (and god I can't stand Read...)

We are definitely lacking in pure No. 8 stocks in this country. Rodney is too old, Read is average at 8, Manu hasn't got it yet, Waldrom is alright but taking off anyway.
Maybe Zinny or Taine could make a come back?

If you take a step back further and look at our other prospects too:

- Vito is way too flighty
- Messam plays too loose - not to mentioned been tried and discarded
- Setephano/Lowry - not really in that league at all...

Taine is making a minor comeback for MAC as a bench man as well as coaching them

shit is Taine desperate surely he could go to a better club.

Number 8 here is in trouble maybe richie is the answer as others are putting there hands up for the number 7 jersey.

nah richie doesnt suit 8 as he isnt fast enough, has the will and the passion but too valuable as a 7 to be moved

yeah doubt rodney will make the ABs, but he's also close to losing his canes spot.

vito is canes best hope of 8, flighty yes but i'm hoping some experience will settle and mature him

8 for the ABs? i dunno

I definitely wouldn't be giving Colin Bourke an AB jersey. He only shines in Air NZ Cup.

Yeah number 8 is a problem I cant see anyone standing out at the moment.

Rodney is the best of a bad bunch at the moment so I guess we have to stick with him no real stars coming through there either.
