He does. He's usually good for one brainfart with the ball, too.

Looks like Mike Brown isn't in the squad for New Zealand.

I didnít really think slade was all that bad, flew out the line a lot which did cause some of those missed tackles but also shut down the bok attack early a few times.
I would love so see Marchant in the 13 jersey though, shift Daly our to the wing in place of May and brown back to 15.

He was thrown aside by DDA and the other Bok backs on several occasions.

Dropping May, our most consistently good back, seems absolutely crazy to me. Is he injured?

May was great In SA and scores some good tryís but heís just fast and not a lot else, no rugby brain in his head just fast legs, Nowell is a workhorse in comparison and Daly has many more elements to his game.

Watch May a bit harder with England and you will start to see 70% of his game he doesnít do a lot makes a lot of mistakes, normally itís covered with a try or 2 so paste over the cracks.

Yeah uh I watch him a lot thanks, he stopped being a mistake machine about 2 years ago. He's one of the best we have under the high ball, he's started making excellent decisions with ball in hand, and he's started to use his pace and agility far more consistently. Like I said, he's consistently good for us and has been for some time.

May is superb. He also hasnít been dropped for Daly.
