@851 E.T, back to bench/CC strictly as a decent backup and then look for maybe a powerful/80 minute worker to play on another edge and have only one of MCK or Lawrence on bench…
It’s relatively possible with respect to the cap situation and then obviously the position of main weakness would be centres, not to mention Hooker now after the debacle aye… I’d be tempted to lock up either Capewell or Ramien if we fail on the above players
Versatile and good 80 minute performers - seems to be what we always lack in.
Unfortunately, it just will not happen… we will continue to slide until Brooksy is relieved of ‘managing’ duties, sadly it’s not what he is good at and it doesn’t who IS good at it, because if we’re able to snag a decent 7 like that then I’d really like Marshall for leadership and back-up… then you have Brooks/J.rey and potentially Simpkin if we as a team are playing very well to come in and start to ply his trade.
Nothing changes until Brooks does (and won’t be able to change playing styles now) so this genuinely should be given a shot. Not this year!
