I agree welshsheep, the guy deserved that game all for his own. It may have been a test match, but a test match that nonetheless mattered for no reason to anybody other than to say goodbye to the greatest player of his era.
That tour, much like the 2009 tour, was just all wrong for him, each for different reasons. in 05 woodward just stuck him out on the wing and basically said "mark sivivatu", whilst at the same time told the rest of the team "remember england in 03? yeah? well try and play like that". it was never going to work like that. »
