John Rutherford has picked Shepard at centre in the game today against
Mumal... Mpalmu... Mapulam.... that South African team. This surprises
me more than a little. My lasting impression of Rowan is that he tends
to crack under pressure. Is this an unfair opinion? It's not as if
we're strapped for choice in the centre, with the likes of youngsters
Mayer and McLaren showing much promise.
Mind you, as long as they don't let him kick the ball, we might be OK...
