Yep that could work Wookie.IMO, put 13 on his back. Peachy at 14 and forwards for the rest of the bench
I been thinking about AD and where he should play...In my opinion he should be put in the second row because he can run through the middle or play out wide ala Garner has been in the centres,Garner was a second rower,now in the centres but it could suit AD..not sure but just a thought...and he could slot in at 5/8 if Brooks leaves or outplays him....Yep that could work Wookie.
What attributes does he have that would be best served in a particular position.
He hasn't got electric speed so that could be a problem playing at fullback and centre.
He is strong through the hips enabling him to jink in his running style which makes him elusive to tackle. A great ⅝ with similar running style was Brett Kenny and of late Cameron Munster.
He has a good long pass to the wing which can be utilised either at ⅝ or centre.
He has an awesome high crossfield kick to wing most likely used as a ⅝
He's tall and copes well under high ball suited to wing or fullback
Can grubber kick in goal for repeat sets most suited to ⅝
Has been caught out in sliding D so best in tight at ⅝
He has other attrubutes and flaws but these are the ones I remember.
It appears that ⅝ would be his best position and has enough credentials to play a utility role.
As a ball playing lock I also think he would be strong enough and smart enough but having to tackle, ball play and run big metres would test him so I think he would struggle initially, especially just coming off knee surgery.
Gildart will not be in the side. AD isn't a lock.2022
3. New signing
Adam for me is destined to become a ball playing lock. Whether that happens next year or not I don't know.
I don't like either of our current centres, they need upgrading, with whom.....no idea!
I believe Gildart can improve, whether he runs home or not, your guess is as good as mine.
Plays like he’s at training - even when his flippers drop the ball, he just walks off like his mom is gonna pick it up and give it back to him..I wish Kepaoa could have an absolute blinder and kill it.
Make breaks, show a ton of speed, solid in defense, side steps or bust thru tackles, SOMETHING.
I haven't seen any attributes so far that warrants selection.
He seems a nice guy but until he does something he's not in my side.
Hope he can do something against Eagles, we need him.
The only reason he's there is because we are lacking options.Plays like he’s at training - even when his flippers drop the ball, he just walks off like his mom is gonna pick it up and give it back to him..
Yeh agree, centre seems to be the obvious position the team needs from him atm.Doueihi is a centre who can play 1,6 or 13.
Centre allows his work rate to remain low so as to maximise his impact. He also provides a genuine backup in the spine in the event of an injury. He's a centre the same way that Wighton is truly a centre.
