Now I wouldn't normally post stuff like this as it just invites the "Rangi should never play for England" comments but just look at this!

Pure genius


Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Albert Einstein was a genius.  Rangi is an exceptionally talented footballer, as that clip clearly shows.

 

He shouldn't play for England though, as he's not English.

He tries lots of things, most don't come off resulting in a negative effect for his team, sooner he goes the better so Cas can start to build from a more stable platform.

Benji Marshall-esque. The trouble with Rangi is it's either rocks or diamonds!

 

If McNamara does play him in the WC (and I am not against it) he will only be a success if he can play off the cuff rugby.  If he is expected to adhere to a strict structured attacking plan his threat is negated IMO.

Agree rangi is an off the cuff player, and in the opp 20 i don't see anything wrong in it really, playing what you see. the only thing is his team mates not been on the same wave length

If he can do that successfully every play then I'd pick him. Unfortunately he won't and it will likely end up in us losing possession.

Widdop is the much better option.

Brilliant piece of skill. I'm no Chase fan by any stretch of the imagination but that was brilliant.

If he also tries that for England and gets pushed into touch. That could end up with us defending 4/5 sets on our own line and costing us the game.

Or be the deciding try that wins the World Cup

The last time in a world cup when a player dangerously went close to the touchline to get out of trouble, did it win or cost his side the final?

Awesome display of skill.  The thing is if you have a quick look at youtube, there are at least as many examples of his thuggery as there are of his undoubted skill.

Sublime. 

 

Not convinced about him playing in the World Cup, or in the major games in the World Cup should I say. He's too much of a loose cannon. That said when he's hot he can be really hot, unfortunately he can also get a bit hot headed.
