Not necessarily the young boys are a bust just not as ready now and need more development instead of guaranteed games
He is, isn't he? Haven't had a second option for gorillas in a long time - it was one thing having Thommo picking off intercepts, imagine being able to free up Tarrant if need be.I have a good feeling about this. Bloke looks in ripping nick. I think we could end up with a very competitive backline in 2020 and beyond.
The reality is, though, Sammy should be ready right now to take over from Thommo. He’s been around for a fair bit of time. I think he has what it takes but he needs to prove it. He has a real opportunity to step up, now that Thompson has departed.He’s the bridge between the 2 older guys taz and daw and the 2 younger guys Durdin and mckay
Reckon this bloke will have a decent career for us 4-5 years
I get what you mean. It still looks bad on McKay and Durdin if they can't get ahead of the guy who could be supposed to be their backup.
You would expect taz and Walker/Durdin to play on the FF and CHF, Maj the third tall that rotates in the ruckIf I was a gambling man I'd have McKay odds on not to make it, only my view of course. Durdin we tried to offload a year or so back. Durds at least has shown something but he needs to work on his intensity, no one doubts his ability.
If Walker at 27 is in front of those two, I wouldn't be concerned in the slightest.
Tarrant, Daw, Walker and Durdin, they aint all playing, Walker as it stands now ( Dec 6!!) will play rd one IF Maj doesn't come up. He is of course expected to be ready rd1. It won't be his fitness but Maj's confidence that will decide that.
I hope Walker is good enough to play weekly, as the two you mention have been around awhile now and we haven't been much chop during that period. New blood could assist us in moving up the ladder- God forbid.
