The debate regarding Bryan Habana rages on. Some say he's the quickest, best finisher in world rugby. Others say all he can do is run straight but doesn't have much skill. There's truth in both sides of the argument, but one thing for sure if that with a little space, and ball in hand he's absolutely lethal. There's not many who would ever out-run him. Brett Stapleton, Tonderai Chavanga, and Tom Varndell are supposedly quicker than him, but what have they achieved to date?
Morgan Turinui was picked at wing up against Habana in this match. Big mistake. He was made to look like a front rower. Then again, three of the other backline players were also shown up. Great tries and skill from Habana, even managing to score when the hefty Turinui tried to shoulder him out the way.
