Of course, this suggestion makes some people go absolutley mad, so i've got to acknowledge I could be wrong, such is the depth of feeling of otherwise rational people.
But that is my opinion.
Hopkins UD, 15.
Hopkins is also brilliant vs lefties. Strategy, adaption and difficulty of adapting to is where Hopkins shines in this one
