Is Crutchley the issue though? I think we have to accept we're not that good. The depth of real, international-level talent doesn't seem to be there. Who in our squad (or even the wider performance squad) is truly world class? Over the past few years I take the view only Middleton and Jackson can lay claim to that accolade and both are sadly on the down slope now. Catlin could be on his way into that bracket, in fairness. We're a top-10 in the world side, but we're not a top-4 side. We can't compete regularly and consistently with Germany, Holland, Belgium and Australia who have a depth of talent we seem unable to match.
