  1. The players are rated on what they did while they were on, which was all what they could do. Keatley had good moments but probably a lot more bad. Roughly speaking Holland was top notch 80% of the time while Keatley only 40% of the time. On that sort of logic the ratings were decided.


  2. Again your ratings are only very average, Explain to me Outhalf 2 players playing only a handful of games get 4.5 + and 8+ and the person with the rest of the games including a few M O Ms awards gets a 4, It beggers belief that a so called Rugby writer could come up with these ratings, Not only this position but a few others also which I will keep to myself as I can’t believe , how they were measured.
