By 'us' do you mean like-minded reactionaries? Barrett didn't have a great game, but to be honest I think that has nothing to do with his vision or skillset. I don't think many 10's would have performed better in those conditions. The Highlanders were putting Peranara under a lot of pressure every breakdown, and the rush defense of the Highlanders meant he had to stand deep, because Peranara's passes just weren't coming quickly enough. It's difficult playing on the back foot. His goal kicking was poor, and I'm skeptical it has much to do with his leg injury, but the way people are writing him off is simply crazy...As if he wasn't a huge part of winning the joint most SR games in a season ever..
