Yes we need some forward mongrel to help bring the young fellas through.He’s a strike half who dominates, that’s a pretty good start. The kid at work used to play against him, says he’s half crazy with attitude.
He’s a different type of player to put into the squad. Ultra competitive like Doogie but less cuddly. A bit of of a grandstander.
They say Gildarts game is a lot like Lomaxs (the kennel).
So a bit of individualism creeping in. Souths is the ultimate side of individuals in some ways, each player has a core strength.
We still need a couple of gun fowards, that’s where I would be spending.
Desperately need Muzzie back in action smashing into the line with an offload, second phasing.
I am also worried about our centres…Doueihi, Talau, Gildart…not much there.
To be fair, there are currently only 4 or 5 players in our side that are consistent first grade standard. By the end of 2022 that may scale to 6 or 7. We need to sign 7/8 players in the next 2 years as our roster is mud. Understanding that and setting realistic game plans to suit the skill level is our only chance of missing the spoon in ‘22.
