We miss Mick on tour. The spray, the torque, the seamless flow from one surefooted wrap or snap to the next. But his year off has had its ups, very much so for him but also for us from the other side of our screens.
I'm thinking Search missions with Mason Ho, surfing under the Northern Lights in Norway and charging slabs in Ireland. Mick's been free from the jersey for the best part of this year and back on the Gold Coast it shows. Ever seen him throw so many punts in such a short space?
