What are your thoughts on Donald pushing Carter out to second five to claim the no. 10 jersey for this weekend's clash with Australia? I know its a dead rubber but any battle of the Tasman has meaning and it seems like an unnecessary change for me. Carter is the world's number 1 at number 10 and doesn't need help controlling a game. Having Nonu outside him gives the ABs more firepower in the backline. Donald just seems redundant with Carter such a great playmaker.

i was a bit surprised by this too tbh
carter at 10 is better than anyone else in the world

is it a sign the AB's dont really care too much about this one?
bit of experimenting?

Yea I agree Donald sux. For me it goes Carter, then daylight, then Nick Evans and Matt Giteau, then more daylight.

Donald will do ok there and carter started out as second five anyway so he will do ok.

Im looking forward to it to see how it goes it could give the AB's a whole new look.

Nonu is a good impact player but sometimes goes missing I would prefer to see him on the wing where he can inject himself into games where he wants to like free role.

I agree Evans is better than donald but donald is all we have at the moment.

Why the hell not. The match doesnt count for much why not experiment a little. Donald aint all bad, and with Carter at 12 he will still be a kicking option.

Bollocks !!
Donald is an OK Super 14 player but no more than a second class All Black I will be surprised if he is even in the squad, we gotta take some new blood like Cruden to cover for Carter at the World Cup, we cannot repeat previous cock ups like winning everything between cups, gotta have quality players in crucial positions !

haha you dug pretty deep to pull this one up Mikey. This thread was made a year ago.

I agree with you now, I want them to drop Cruden in there, give him time to build up for the ABs WC.
