Tim Horan (67)
I like. We could use his speed. High ball good. Cover defence great. How is his defense otherwise?
Bloody hell, Koroibete looks like an absolute jet. Big early call but his speed and step reminds me of Rupeni Caucau.
Got to say, i'm hoping Morgan Turinui can do some wonders with the backs next year as I see it, Tony is not shaping a gameplan that can unlock the backs potential. Sefa is possibly the only person in Aus playing S18 that can turn nothing into something off his raw ability. Why is it that we are not utilizing this to its full potential, instead it seems to be 'hey give it to inman and see if he can run through a brick wall'. Bitta flair in the playmakers would go a long way imo
The one thing I will never understand is why Inman was not converted to a forward when he was younger. His a good build to play 6 or 8, his nearly 6'3 and weigh's 105kg. Also has the passing game of a forward, don't get why everyone has persisted with him in the backs for all these years.
Defender yes, passing game is a massive no. If he had that he would be a unreal center. You could count the amount of passes he makes a game on one hand.
His weight is about 90 kgs not that big for a winger
From Fox Sports Rugby -
"While his heart may still say Storm, Koroibete’s head said rugby union, with the massive joint offer from the Rebels and Australian Rugby Union, who view him as a future Wallaby, too good to refuse.
“I’d like to have stayed,” Koroibete said."
Sounds like this guy is really excited about his new job at the Rebels!
Yes perhaps in open play but realistically off almost every set play is that needed?
Sounds more like NRL media trying to disrupt the Storm in the week of the final.
You don't think that that becomes predictable? Not to mention limiting of the moves it the 12 consistently only runs that line?
Only if you do it in a predictable way. Different angles/running lines and mixing up the balance between distribution and taking contact.
This is common sense rugby, every coach will implement it differently but every coach will do it.
Plus, I never said 12. Mitch and other 'crashballers' play 12 and 13, depending on what the coach wants (and often changing play to play).
Agreed but i think its limiting is all, not calling for the blokes axing just saying variety needs to be used. Another note is that it rarely breaks the line, and also allows less time and space for back if the crash ball is done and then sending the ball wide. As there is not extra 10m/5m to play with and more people will be defending in the line
