If both number 7s are shit... And they were. Obviously one is still going to get a win. That doesn't mean a good number 7 is irrelevant.He didn't run the ball is true but QLD's halves were just as bad. Moses actually had more kick metres then DCE and Munster was poor.
It isn't as though they won the game on the back of a huge effort from their number 7 though.
Which is my point about the number 7 being able to be good without being great and teams still can win
Your logic is completely f**ked. Literally every position can play absolutely f**ked and still grab a win.
Nathan Cleary teams are undefeated this year and average a 35 point win. That's at club level. And origin.
Without him neither team's scoring anywhere near that amount of points, and their defence is leaking more points. 5 games he has missed between NSW and Panthers. Getting a pretty big sample which shows when he's running the teams those sides are a lot better. Come up with whatever excuse you want. But anyone who doesn't hate him can see just how important he is. Take him out of a tem and suddenly they're vulnerable.
