    On speed, Dufty is one of the quickest in the comp. He is a footy player too. If he can stay fit he will have one hell of a career. I think Aitken is quite quick, and he is tough as they come. Lafai, well speed isn't his biggest attribute and nighty is deadset slow. McInnes showed he can dart when he needs to and Sims over 30 meters is lightning for his size.
    Isn't it great to have a little speed again? Fantastic.

    McInnes is actually very quick and great to see him darting from Dummy half , which gives us another option in attack that we did not have last year ......

    That is one .. the other is a simple Lomax for Nighty ... Swap the bloke who is playing right wing in the reggies and scoring tries with the bloke playing Right wing in first grade and murdering tries.

    I am wondering if the new coaching assistant from the UK - I think his name is Agar or something like that - has been playing a pivotal role within the coaching staff in 2018. In 2018 the Dragons didn't start to fade until round 7, so if we get to round 10 undefeated, this may very well be our best chance to shine since 2010.

    Agree
    The guys mentioned are up there.
    But frizz is also quick and of course mann.
    Most of the players are quicker than last year.
    Imo it's in the training.
    More emphasis on quick short burst with power than long sprints
