He’s been phenomenal as a leader and the way he’s contributed in revamping the club culture is one of the reasons why we’re sitting in the 8 right now with a bright future ahead.
Defensively he’s been stout and the way he scrambled on our last defensive sets vs. the Dogs today was admirable.
I am however a bit disappointed with how he’s been going in attack. I think he’s getting too few carries given how damaging a runner he can be. I understand Cleary’s approach is outside back intensive to keep the forwards fresh for defence but I really think we could stand to benefit from Packer getting some of the carries that Taylor and Eisenhuth have been getting, if not some of the backs runs too.
Last game foxsports is saying 6 runs for 48m, with all our other props getting over 10 carries.
Anyone else noticed it or is it just me? I’m confident as the season wears on things should fix a bit, but I think it should be a focus to get him the ball in his hand given he rarely makes errors, has an offload and is a handful to tackle.
