12.Eisenhuth….he can play edge, trust me
I like the team but this concerns me. Eisnhuth has been really poor in our losses and he looks slow. I can’t see him playing on the edge.
You could be right but I see no evidence based on his performances so far.
Yeh I think it’s a fair concern you have.
My belief in Eisenhuth playing right edge is a little old school. He isn’t the modern day power edge backrower, he is the old school John Cartwright style. But we know in league, old quickly becomes new again. I think he has a natural ability and sense to hit the right line. This is backed up by a few line breaks and tries this year running off a half. I also believe, his big frame, right arm off load makes the defence think twice, something we desperately need. If he can show he handles the defense as good as Rochow, then i think he is a great 80 minute right side backrower.
