Gio Aplon what a let down, u can not say he does ok at the top level at all. how many videos online of him getting smashed and knocked out. the guy has the biggest heart but without the bulk ur limited. not useless but limted.
pace is great until.... you get smashed and lets face it he will eventually get smashed. when you have a stand out skill on a rugby pitch you become a target, i dont care what anyone else says its the truth. he should stay at 7`s its where guys like that belong so more power to him for his pace but then again, what else can you say about him? nothing. pace thats it.
of course leading with shoulder! how else do you make a tackle? you don`t lead with your hands do you!?! as long as you make the attempt to wrap the arms and its obvious to the officials then its all fine! »
