I thought of something today.
In 2010 Souffs were rubbish.
In 2011 they went all out and bought the best centre in the world. This player had been tried at 1, 3 and 6 by Melbourne but his best position was 3.
Souffs bought him to build a team around and they threw him in at Fullback. They also bought Ray Asotasi and then proceeded to build a team around them.
In time this players body couldnt handle the rigours of fullback anymore and he was moved back to centre. Within 3 years they won a premiership.
I wonder who the coach was that oversaw this masterstroke?
Roy Asotasi played for souths from 2007 to 2013, so Madge never signed him
Fair enough, my point was more around Inglis which is what I really think the critical issue. Madge didnt sign him either (one year earlier) but he certianly was the one who put it all together.
