I always rated MK and fully expect him to do very well there. I wouldn't rule out a return under EJ especially as there is a rotating chair for the 7 shirt at the moment. He could easily be that man and with more carrying be an effective Int.

“ with more carrying” therein lies the issue, he doesn’t carry much and new breakdown laws have made the need for someone who wrestles possession almost redundant.

One of the things that has been apparent these last two weekends is the different interpretation at the breakdown in the Premiership and Top 14/Pro whatever. Munster dominated Leicester last week by dominating the breakdown. I suspect that’s why Kev played yesterday.

Yes you do feel that MK might be better signing for a French or Pro 14 team. Unless there are yet more tinkering with the laws that tilt them back in his favour he might as well move abroad and enjoy playing because I don't think EJ will be looking his way again otherwise

I always admired his playing style and if I held purse strings he would not been allowed to leave.
I could never understand why he was never selected or on bench.

Warriors fan in peace here (if welcome).

It's a shame that those at Glaws only saw the classic no. 7 Kev in his 2nd season - during his time at Wuss he often switched between 7 and 8, and was one of our best and most destructive carriers, something which hasn't really been seen in a breakdown specialist in this country. Not sure who managed to coach him out of it, whether it was England or whoever Glaws had as forwards coach at the time, but it's interesting to see people's perceptions that he can't/doesn't carry, when it used to be the strongest part of his game.

Every fan from opposing clubs is welcome to post, as long as it's clean!

I've been told that his attitude and arrogance was what caused the breakdown in the Fisher relationship. Basically, Fisher didn't like it and froze him out.

His carrying (regardless of who's at fault) wasn't ever strong in a Glaws shirt. I don't believe that was a facit of the game he was coached to use. He was there to work at the breakdown, by destroying opposition ball in defence and provide us quick, clean ball in attack. He did that exceptionally well for 2 seasons.

The bizarre thing is, Fisher was an exponent at the breakdown, so having a top class fetching openside was key to his game plan. When that relationship fell apart, so did Fishers game plan and the poor results followed.
