I don’t think Walters starting will be as positive as many think. His impact is in spurts and needs space. He would be more valuable to us as a bench change giving us some spark/dynamic game off the bench.
The side is ok, I’m not as happy as some.
LL hasn’t impressed much yet & will take time to gel.
BJ hasn’t had a Madge offseason and will take longer in the backs to get combos working. Expect a tough year for him
Momo will come in but for who…
AD will come in for CT but where does CT go
Jennings has looked different so far (amazing what a full pre-season does to players).
We are missing a glue guy - Matto/ET were those last year doing the cleaning up + 3rd man + gap filler from our forward pack just don’t see one of those
It’s only a trial and we know they mean little but do want to see signs ahead of our first few rounds on how they play together
Sure nofo has weaknesses especially reading defence patterns but he also is our best hit up merchant and knows how to finish when he gets some decent ball.
Put a quality center inside him and I think that could reduce his defensive weakness outside of bombs - only stilts or bombs being banned could save him on that one.
I’ve always hated tries scored from bombs and it will be worse now.
There’s a simple solution … if you score from a bomb it’s only worth 2 points.
What differentiates a bomb from a chip?
The label on the packet?
Good to see Abbey is staying.
Hope his knees come good and he can have an injury free period this season for us.
Why wouldn’t he stay?
We only just signed him…
Hasn’t even played a game.
He was only on a train and trial deal initially not a squad deal.
