Should it be incumbent Aaron Cruden or Hurricanes hometown hero Beauden Barrett who gets the nod at 10 for the All Blacks when the team is named tomorrow morning to play South Africa?
Possesses a lethal running game which is made better by excellent option taking. He has more experience leading the All Blacks around the park than Barrett and controls the game well. Kicking in both general play and at goal has come-on in leaps and bounds.
There is still a question on defence. It's not that he can't tackle, it's that his smaller stature makes him a target for an easy offload.
Lightning quick acceleration and top-end speed which often leaves his opposite in two minds. His size makes him stronger in the tackle than Cruden and he has more of an x-factor quality.
Inexperienced at first five-eighth for the All Blacks. His goal kicking was suspect last weekend and his defence has also been questioned.
