Bang on mate.
There is one simple principle in rep league, if you play solo, you're a marked man. If you are the pivot & play maker & get taken out, the team is at a disadvantage, & in that environment, you can get run over in a very short time.
Anthony thought he was bigger than the game. He might have been good enough but when you let one player run rampant, pretty soon they all want to "stand out"
That's what Choc didn't understand & he wouldn't accept teamsmanship, that's why he switched to boxing.
The racist card was an excuse IMO.
