I always said he was too deep for what I wanted from a Wasps ten, just not what I want us to play like, and I think the team just could not adjust from a ten in traffic to ten in the pocket, it negated our strengths. Unfair to blame him, Dai knew what he was bringing in. Often wondered if Dai wanted a lot more structure to us but had a team that was full of players who excelled in broken play, so just went with it, and bringing in Lima was part of a plan to get us into a more territorial game with fewer hare em scare em moments.
I totally agree Lima did not get a cohesive team to play around. Then again when we missed Cipriani through injury we sometimes clicked, and sometimes did not, so it is possible had Lima been playing with that era Wasps he would have had the same issues
I am glad it worked out for him now as a fifteen. Minozzi is a super talent, I really look forward to watching him, and has been super under the high ball, so for me Lima is still more bench that starting given a full squad.
