He is 100% premiership quality. Cliche but true... form is temporary and class is permanent. Even allowing for injury he's not been afforded the opportunities over the past year or so.

If he can put a good season in he'll be back in the premiership in absolutely no time whatsoever.

"Form is temporary, class is permanent" doesn't really apply to your average club player. He wasn't at the same level as guys like Robshaw, Brown, Care, etc

Lucky he's not an average club player then.

I agree he's not at the same level as Robshaw etc. now but there was certainly a time when he was and was being talked about by several pundits in terms of international selection.

Injuries do horrible things to confidence, mentality and ultimately form. I've no doubt he'll be back in the Premiership soon.

Never being good enough for international rugby at your best, not a stand-out at club level for the majority of your career = average club player.

Virtually every player has been talked about in terms of international rugby at some point!

This is the weirdest trolling ever. Yeah I speculated that Horwill was perhaps not going to make it back from injury after two years where he was injured a lot and the most recent injury where he was out for months with no word on his condition.

Then - lo and behold - he came back, played half a season and retired saying his body had given up.

Itís not quite the same as saying there would be £350m a week for the NHS and then there isnít.

That's not true. He WAS a stand-out at club level for a few consecutive seasons.

If you're not a fan, fine. He was an excellent quality player in his prime and if he stays fit, he'll be there again. I'll look forward to rubbing it in your face when he's picked up by a prem team! :)

No other player is at the level of Robshaw.

You do realise I'm saying he's been an average club player for most of his career, therefore him playing club rugby wouldn't be at all disagreeing with what I'm saying?
