Another Angle on 10

I lifted this from

Seems like good topic for discussion

I have to say this in the defence of SA flyhalfs:

Have a look at every single attacking SA backline for the past 10 od weeks. They all have one thing in coomon.

NO OPTIONS FOR THE FLYHALVE!!!! How the hell can any flyhalf create anything if his backline all lies flat in a line next to him when he gets the ball?????

You have a whopping 3 options. 1 = crash it up, 2 = kick, 3 = sell the player next to you.

1) No one runs flat
2) No one runs deep
3) No one switches
4) No one drifts
5) No runs on the inside

My observation when Carter, Larkam, or most NZ and AUs flyhalves for that matter gets the ball is that all 5 options as mentioned is available at the same time. This excludes the kicking and running options.
