I am a big believer in the 5 man prop rotation, lock being a slightly specialised prop. That said, I dont think Woods is best utilised at lock.
I see Sue as a lock, and Blair in an performing pack, but Woods is a straight prop.
Woods is awesome dont get me wrong, but you have to think of burden too. Woods is consistant, but Blair is wiley, Sue is hard. I am unsure an 80min lock is the go today, think Segayaro impact forward, OK a hooker, but its the change of style that works. Woods like Sauce is a little low on the speed factor, the final series this yr a under-weight Manly shanked the Bunnies up the middle, that was mobility and speed, working the ruck, quick play the balls, something both Blair and Sue ( not there yet but he finds the ground via agression) to an extent can provide. Get props to bang, locks to punch and provide ruck speed, God knows we need them to tighten up the ruck.
Been bashed for a long time but sauce kills with slow play the ball, Robbie has less room to move.Blair knows how to make it happen, and Sue hits that hard he noses through to his guts, should be working on by now. We have to learn to run the tackle count…. Settle, probe with forwards to find the quick play for say 2 tackles and should find it if we are worth our salt, then either punch for one or 2 more or unleash a back, off quick play the ball…
This year we dont have to re-invent the game, its all about realising potential, when it matters especially. 3rd tackle chips shouldnt be the norm, we have the cattle. Lock is a specialist position, with Kidwell and Blair, Sue is the man, not Woods.
