Kicking duties?

Kicking duties?

Why is 36 our primary place kicker still?
Although he is doing a reasonable job, I thought BB was now fit? Even when Owen Williams came on, 36 continued with the place kicks.

BTT is 91.4% from 22 kicks BB is 92% from 12.
Only person above them is Flood on 100% from 6.

I think it must be to keep BB's mindset focussed on fly half duties.

And if you can score 11 tries the place kicker becomes somewhat irrelevant :D

I believe in the past kicking duties were given to the player that performed best during training in the week leading up to the game. I'm not sure if this still applies.

BB's left leg is still heavily strapped. I suspect that is the main reason that he is not kicking for goal.

I'm sure that was confirmed recently.

Those stats are pretty impressive Simmo.

Williams must surely be first choice though, if only for the minerals he proved he had knocking that conversion over v Bath.
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two impostors just the same.

OW is at 33.3% from 6 admittedly not had many chances after his first game shocker to bring his stats up.

BB last season was the 3rd most accurate kicker in the league with 86.1% from 31 both who are above Kicked a lot less goals for higher numbers.
