Not so clever mike its hard to believe what you're saying about you following Cruden this year otherwise you woudve known he's been playing all year with a groin injury.
After topping the points table last year with 251 points to being unable to kick this year also accounts for the percieved difference in his peformance.. With a dab hand and accurate boot of Anscombe who has been a god send for the Chiefs we can afford to rest Cruden
And i 'm sure the blues coach is kicking himself for letting Anscombe go even after he single handedly demolished the Bulls at Loftus - what a dumbarse but lucky for the Chiefs Anscombe can fill in for Cruden.
Bit short in the centers at the moment the Chiefs though with Nanai Williams, Ngatai, Kahui ,Horrel all injured so Save Tokula gets a run . Lookout for Tawera Kerr Barlow back at halfback too after breaking his jaw.
Cruden will come in off the bench no doubt as he has'nt missed a game yet this season or last season - not a bad attendence rate what say you not so clever mike...
And i have to ask how the Mighty Chiefs could have got to their current top of the table position with double the amount of bonus points as everyone else without Cruden the general being there, dictating play, calling the shots and weaving that magic...
