Video analysis: Berrick vs Blues

Seeing Jason O’Connors clips from the weekend made me wonder about how he stacked up against who everyone one has as a shoo-in for the Wallaby 12 spot – Berrick Barnes. Here’s the Reds vice captains edited highlights. There’s no doubt he had a brilliant game, predominantly playing at first receiver, despite wearing 12.

This was just as well because Cooper dropped everything he touched. In this respect the comparison might be a bit unfair, because while O’Connor had Giteau to play off, Barnes was actually making up for Cooper the lead weight. You’ll see the final try at the end that Cooper stuffed. I still can’t fathom that one.
