What makes a stand-off stand out?

Recommended Posts

Watched recently Jamie Soward stand out as stand-off (Dragons v. Tigers). Took the ball as second receiver pretty deep as if he was pretending to take a field goal and then as the line attacked him, he ran with blistering pace around the side of them and, then, from the 20 metre line backed himself and sprinted past four defenders to score. "Fastest man on the planet over 40m" according to the commentator.

Pace, speed - as well as the guile. What a stand-off! Backing himself to run with the ball on the last play.

And yet, all we want him to do is kick goals! :D
