I would think it means a person holding a red rag to a bull would "stretch" to ensure they aren't hit by said bull. Unless I'm mistaken and that is an inside bull, and the guy in the jacket is trying to lure them in from a flank?
Thought he was worth a punt, but what does he offer the team? Can't mark, can't lead and doesn't pressure the ball anywhere near enough. He struggles to find the ball, and struggles even more to dispose it when he rarely gets a touch. One dimensional slow plodder.
He is a 6th forward who is a difficult match up as he is good in the air for his size, physical and a pretty reliable kick.
our media department stated he would be a midfielder.
he has often played as A key position forward this year
Not that I care about this club much anymore, if at all. It isn't his fault, been poorly played out of position. He is a small forward. Not a lead up forward. He is deserving of another year. Has a crack, unlike the other weak campaigners we have.
The least I can say about Townsend is that he has mongrel and applies good hard pressure. He's one that never applies weak as piss tackles like most of our squad. Not his fault he's given too much responsibility and we have a poor forward structure thanks to Dan Jordan's coaching.
I think he has a place on our list going forward, but I wouldn't be upset if we parted ways either.
