Do you feel Capewell was that good? Or did the system help him a little?
When the Storm replace a guy and he looks the goods right away is it the player or the coaching staff and system?
Look at Papali'i. How did he go from a bench player to a premium forward in one off season? And why are the Eels constantly producing forwards?
I think its the system more then anything. I will tip Papali'i to go backwards once he goes to the Tigers and by 2023 a few more forwards will look as good at the Eels.
Watch Greig and Ogden. Two rejects from former clubs this season.
So as much as a player must have talent the system is needed to take them to another level.
Burton I think is an exemption being so talented. How will all the other Bulldog players go? Do you think JAC will still be the best winger in game? Will Cotric regain form at Raiders?
Panthers should have cash to spend for sure. The money they paid for RCG AND BLAKE will end this season also.
There is going to be a lot of suprise packets pop up from nowhere and smart clubs no this. Plenty of these 19-20ylds who barely been playing would have been working the gym and physically developing.
Smart clubs are keeping money spare to see which ones do pop up.
Dogs and Tigers have analed themself and won't be in the market. Bennet and the Dolphins will benefit largely and I reckon its why old Wayne is not panicking and signing some older experienced players. He is going to flood the side with hot young talent.
Both. He was underutilised at the Sharks and he grew in our system. He will be missed.
Papali'li always showed glimpses of talent at the Warriors but never consistent. He needed a fresh change and probably had a point to prove. The Eels some deserve credit for getting the best out of last year. I can't see him hitting those heights again at the Tigers.
Cotric will be back in his comfort zone and will be better than he was at the Dogs. Though, I feel he would be a much better player in our system or at the Storm.
