My brother spoke to JW while they were at Otago Uni, before he was an
Allblack, and he commented to me the time about how he came across as
being very 'full of himself', this has been confirmed with his recent
People who are arrogant about how good they are really annoy me, no
matter what level they are at or what sport. If JW just celebrated to
himself by, say, raising his***I wouldn't mind, but looking at the
crowd with his mouth open as if to say "I cant believe how good I am" is
far too much.
Fitzpatrick and Wilson were/are my least favoured players in the
AllBlacks, so I wasn't surprised to hear alot of SA's thinks the same
way. Besides Fitzpatricks dirty play, they share a common thread of
arrogance. James may be arrogant off the field, but I haven't seen him
showing it on the field, not as JW anyway.
I really love it when Wilson makes mistakes, hopefully brings him down to
earth a bit.
