Whether or not we need one is a moot point because we cannot afford a coach for each position. We’re not like the rich clubs (Storm, Roosters, Broncos etc) that have coaches, nutritionists, physios etc coming out of their ears
If we have limited funds. Should we get a halves coach, and a forwards coach like everyone else is doing and be outclassed in trying to copy them?
Ofcourse we need to have our forwards moving forward, ofcourse we need co-ordinated defense.
Every club seems to be throwing everything at their halves. I heard Adam Reynolds say on the weekend “ofcourse when you loose, the halfback is the one that gets blamed”. Why do we trust the halfback to do the “magic kick” for whatever winger or center they find… all the time.
I think this is why Manly and Easts have succeeded. They have dangerous halfbacks and very dangerous centers and wingers, they can test the line at different areas and come up with the points.
