Now all the experts on here get to see how good the team goes without him.
Oh and just on this we played 2 games without him at the start of the year and won both.
Field, Herbet, Lafai can kick??Losing just Dugan doesn't dramatically affect the Dragons. Nighty to fb, Mann to the wing. BUT, losing widdop and dugan will be dramatic.
Also, we have now lost our goal kicker and reserve goal kicker. Who is the reserve reserve goal kicker?
No team has an understudy to their halves. That is what nsw cup is for. Look at cowboys with no thurston. The back ups are the cup halves. How do you suggest otherwise backups should be prepared? Its called a salary cap.The team is ill prepared to replace Widdop and to a lesser extent Dugan.
Mac Gregor should have an understudy to both our halves but this does not seem to be the case which is worsened by the injury to Hutchison and the erratic form of Nona. We should have
both Field and Mann trained up to fill in at any time. The coach has few contingency plans as evidenced by the injury to both Widdop and Dugan. Also he did not improve the backline defence shown up against the Eels and re-surfacing agsinst the Storm , backup goalkicking capability or field goal ability. The coach is like an ostrich with his head in the sand only acting to rectify things when he has been bitten 2-3 times not just once.
