    Hadn't noticed that. You could be right so.

    Your all taking that "under rated" writing wrong. It's just to remind Zebo his pass off his left ain't the best. Good reminder to concentrate when passing.

    Both Penney and Axel clearly want him to know they're behind him. Why wouldn't they be when he's playing like he is? Just a shame Joe wants to come over all Dickensian schoolmarm and has chosen Zebo to set an example to the other boys.

    As for your sarcastic comment on the catch. Says a lot about your attitude that you can't admire a bit of skill.

    Axel's take on Zebo: http://www.planetrugby.com/story/0,2...481765,00.html

    Downright scathing, huh?

    On the catch, he caught the ball, well done. He does have that 'something' though and only a fool would not start him.

    His provincial coaches haven't a bad word to say about him, he's great with young fans, he comes across well in the few interviews that he's done and, most importantly, he's tearing it up on the field. I'll trust what I know rather than unsubstantiated insinuation thanks.

    Anyone see Zebo coming onto the pitch during the warm-up and one of the Zebre players had flaked a low ball towards him at pace. He noticed it out of the corner of his eye and controlled it on the volley to take all the sting out of it and tapped it back to them. I generally don't worship at his altar but it was freakish skill.
    So much for the whole wurrld being covered by cctv

    How long has Zebo been sporting "under-rated" on his wrist??

    Meh, they'd just played in joe's system for longer so there was no lead in time to get up to speed. Zebo has better pace and creativity than Kearney, Kearney was just better at what Joe wanted at the time. If Zebo gets good at what Joe wants and also has all the extra things he's good at, then we get a better team overall.

    It isn't unsubstantiated any of the Irish players will tell you if you ask them.

    Anyway on form he'll start in AI and hopefully it will kick-start a top class international career for him
