RE: Is No 9 really Hougaard’s niche?

u know what, im a big believer that to each their own with their opinion in their posts, but IMO all those who think hougaard should be moved from 9 are [removed]ed.
i dont think he had a bad game last week, i think the english won the first half and dominated the rucks, piling pressure on houggard from all angles nearly every single time, but he still got away plenty of good ball and even made a few linebreaks.
but the reality is, hes only started in the starting XV 6 times, his most recent starts included last week adainst england and the other start against namibia at the RWC, WTF??? o_O
give the dude some time to find his groove, u all know hes a bundle of talent, but hes been operating in du preezs shadow for most his career. yes he has things to work on, but none of them are nothing he cant handle.
mark my words, soon all u nay sayers will be talking about how crazy it was when all these suggestions about moving hougaard to the wing were the flavour of the month.
