Is Loz simply an example of fans "bigging up" a player who has a couple of eye catching moments in a victory, then being disappointed when he doesn't appear to stand out more often? I feel he is one of many excellent players who can step into our First XV with no discernible drop in quality, but someone who, in a team of these players, simply looks decent.

Last year, a few were dreaming of an attack of Spencer, Malins, Tompkins, Lozowski. ignoring the fall in defensive quality - think Northampton v Leinster! Many of us were also puzzled at Mark's occasional Loz/Nick 12/13 combination, feeling it to be the wrong way round, perhaps forgetting that he had occasionally been caught out positionally in defence at 13.

It can't help that he has played 10/12/13 with visits to wing and fullback, though this flexibility is great for the team. He punches above his weight in the tackle and reads the game well but needs others to create opportunities that he can exploit. 100 games in little over 3 years speaks volumes of his value and rumours are of others trying to sign him.

He is one of many squad players who may wish to try to become a star in a lesser team rather than a valuable component in a star team. I think he has a longer, healthier, happier and more successful future as the latter and hope he stays and continues to contribute solid performances and occasional moments of top quality.
