Tri Nations Australian MVP: Sterling Mortlock

Sterling MortlockMortlock was the best Australian player in this Tri Nations and he has been rewarded with the captaincy for the World Cup. He was consistently the most dangerous back and did real damage against the All Blacks in the first game.

I would question the lack of use of him in the second test with the All Blacks but that appeared to be a tactical decision with the locks taking the ball into contact in the center channels. This felt slow and deliberate and really easy to predict, Mortlock had consistenly gotten behind the All Blacks defense and was under utilised.
