Big Dave Taylor has had his best pre-season ever. At least that's what people in the know are whispering among each other. Apparently the Behemoth rocked up to pre-season minus 5 kilos and has been busting a gut at every training session since.
This is fantastic news.
There's nothing I love more than seeing Big Dave Taylor running amock, tearing the opposition to pieces. Whether with his brute force or an elegant little chip or well-timed pass.
Greater minds than mine have been trying to discourage Big Dave from the chip and chase and his natural ball-playing skills. Those greater minds are absolute gooses! If Big Dave wants to play at halfback, 5/8 or even fullback let him give it a crack! He's an absolute wonder and a Leviathan of a man that could crush any nay-sayer to dust with just two fingers.
Is Big Dave the complete match-winner or should he just stick to being a blunt instrument?
