i didnt even recognise ur name till u popped on the other thread, LMAO, :oP
i think oconners been a little hard done by, of the 6 tries scored on his wing, he was only responsible for one of them and that was the ben smith try from the cruden offload. bieber should have trusted AAC to take out cruden and he instead came of his line.
two of those 6 tries though happened when bieber was playing fullback, so it wasnt really his side.
the scond try down his was a case of numbers, All Blacks had too much and the wallys couldnt scramble outwide fast enough where McCaw and others were not marked.
bieber did everything he could, but the All Blacks know when to pass and simple textbook execution saw that try.
the 3rd one and the first try to ben smith in test 2 was genia and moggs fault, they both dropped back and left oconner to defend the blinside when the All blacks had massive numbers there. bieber was left with moore and mowen on his inside and the All Blacks just ran straight for bieber and forced him to commit before quick hands and the numbers game saw them punnish the wallys.
the scond try was sparked by luatuas break after luatua carved up the oppoistion and then beat a woeful mogg. it was bieber who made the try saving tackle on luatua and stoped bhim from scoring, but the wallys failed to scrmable their defnece in time and the All blacks quick hands once again went booyaa.
its an area worth exploring, but if the Boks think its an area of wekaness without taking the factors into context, theres going to be some miserable looking Bok players flying to NZ, :o)
