Snow, I thought last year the pack struggled, we were flattered on the table by a magical Ben Hunt season.
What’s changed this year? I can’t see we’ve gained any advantage on last year, if anything we have gone slightly backwards.
You’re right, we need either a couple of key signings or a new coach that can get the best out of the current pack. Both would be ideal.
I agree to your comments crush, but you asked what’s changed:
1) McCullough is gone. His defence in the middle was good, but he was too predictable in attack which put our forwards on the back foot. Liddle if Fit could bring a lot, though in attack I like this young guy we signed just not sure on his defence, or how his Highlight package translates into the big time.
2) we have lost sims. I was a big supporter of his, though he wasn’t ‘up for it” enough. Only pushed in the big games. Needs to be replaced though.
3) we dropped what I would call a lot of dead wood ( &woods ?)
4) Jayden hunt looks ready to step up, and others have wraps on Coric. With a few gone, maybe they get a chance and develop
5) Francis Molo is a beast, though I thought he underperformed last year. New hooker may suit him more, and his brother developed a lot last season.
6) musgrove signing hasn’t excited me tbh, but hoping he proves me wrong
still, we need that hooker option to really work, and at least one top middle forward, preferably 2.
