On the evidence of the end of last season, McPhillips is a better player.

FFS he has played 160 minutes of rugby in an Ulster shirt :lol: Has bakebook invaded the UAFC.

I've been content with what I've seen of Burns in his two opening games. Coming into a playmaking position is difficult, he hasn't played with his outside backs before, they haven't played wth him, he has joined a new club, new culture and new coaching team with a different way of thinking. He will be orchestrating a new game plan to that which he has played previously.

There's a misconception especially from the blow ins / uneducated (fair enough they're just there for a nights entertainment) that Burns is the finished article, he's still only 24 therefore I feel we will not see the best of him for another couple of years.

His only error of note from memory was missing touch to the corner after the Scarlets yellow when there was a real momentum shift on offer. He may not be always taking that step BECAUSE he is already playing flat, if you want him to take a few steps I think you'll need to advise him to stand further back. It may come as a shock but with playing 10 he will also be following a game plan. He has taken a couple of absolute hospital balls, been thumped to the ground, gotten up and dusted himself off. Hardy little bugger. He's what I call a 100%er, he always looks like he is giving his all.

I'm certainly pleased he's here over Joey Carbey, the idiotic Quade Cooper and any other name that was touted. For those with any doubt about Billy boys ability watch The Glaws away Challeng cup semi final win versus La Rochelle in France.

I'll wait until at least he has a season under his belt before I pass final judgement.

With playing Kings on Sunday and Cheetahs on Friday I'd be shocked if we did not see McPhillips and/or Curtis at 10 over the next couple of games.

FFS give the boy a chance.

First things first, don’t do anything stupid and develop from there.

Remember the GP in the Heiny final, he was fûck awful?

I'm not looking for the finished article. I'm not looking for him to be Dan Carter.

I AM looking for him to not plant his feet long before receiving the ball and letting the defence start drifting off him before he even gets the pill!

As for the excuse that he has not played with these backs before - what do you think they do during the week? Push dumbbells around all day?

If you cannot see that as a problem, and think that just because possession wasn't lost on his pass that its not bad play, or even worthy of being called a mistake in itself, then I'm afraid this isn't a discussion worth having.

Lealiifano was pretty flakey in his first few games last season. Billy has been more consistent at the same stage. Should probably keep FOBB in the cupboard until at least October :lol:

This is all a healthy sign that nobody is willing to move on.
