That was 6 foot 4 inch, 17 stone Lions winger, George North's assessment of Australia's Israel Folau.
"...physical attributes count for more than creative flair."
...And the above is Telegraph blogger Jack Rivlin's view of players in the modern game.
Sorry Jack, but these bloody big geese have got just a little bit of creative flair to go with their size.
In fact here's 'boring gym monkey' Israel Folau scoring a belter in Bledisloe II just a couple of weeks ago...
Hell of a step. Check out his show-reels, his offloads are pretty special too.
Now I'm not going to try and fight your accusations of rugby being boring by listing tons of examples of awesome plays, because after all you seem to have a 'Rain Man' like memory of the sport.
The fact you remember those superior days of amateur rugby so well are testament to this, especially as I make it that you were about 6 years old when the sport went professional. The argument that TV reruns and highlights tapes are where you've drawn your conclusions from, is I'm afraid, spectacularly flawed; they're called highlights and classics for a reason ...clue, they're just the very good games!
It seems from your article, it's not so much the rugby you're interested in, you admit you find the rules 'baffling', and it appears the soap operas off the field interest you more.
(NB. I'm not sure that there's a Will Carling character in it, but you'll be delighted to know there's a new Princess Diana movie out in the coming weeks...)
Indeed, whilst we're on that topic, your reference to the difference between the players of the mid-nineties and now is a little laughable. Will Carling's psychology degree is now trumped by Jamie Roberts' or Felipe Contepomi's medical qualifications perhaps? His alleged links with Princess Diana outdone by 'jumper stuffing lump' Mike Tindall marrying the Queen's granddaughter maybe?
And if those don't excite you enough, I'm sure The Sun has a few pages on Danny Cipriani from the past few weeks for you.
But these are off field topics, things that don't matter to the sport.
It's the tedium you accuse the modern game of having, the fact you think it's boring for some reason?
I question what rugby you're watching? Super Rugby thrills week in week out from February through to August, we follow that with The Rugby Championship, high octane sport that leaves the punter breathless not just the player.
And in the past few weekends we've seen the return of the Northern Hemisphere leagues...
In France they're 5 rounds in, quick turnarounds like this only possible in modern professional sport; exciting too as newly promoted Oyonnax are already taking names, turning over champions Castres and Heineken Cup finalists Clermont, at home already.
In the RaboPro12, over 250 points scored across the 6 matches in round 1, including a shock for 2013 finalists Ulster who fell to a reinvigorated NG Dragons.
Finally, to the Aviva Premiership, the league I imagine you're most familiar with. Over 60,000 people seemed to disagree with your sentiments about rugby being boring as they filed into Twickenham to watch the London Double Header.
I'm not going to pick apart your appraisal of the law changes that have been made to improve the game, because you seem to have very little interest in what actually happens on the pitch...
...you're more interested in talking during play, for which I probably would've told you to shut up too.
My final point is not about rugby, on or off the pitch, it's about bullying. Your comment about Chris Robshaw is frankly disgusting, it's trolling. Insult the sport, the governing bodies, the teams and their form as much as you like, but stooping to something as low as physical attributes is pretty gross.
