But mate you arent really understanding, if its a 'quick turnover' then why would Hunt have the ball on the mark? A quick turnover doesnt involve Hunt marking the ball, thats a chip kick around the backline.The thing is TK, this won’t be able to be utilised with every defensive exit. And I doubt anyone is suggesting that. Of course if the ball is locked in defensive 50 the forwards likely push up. But on a quick turnover it can create some opportunities for forwards to run into some space. Just need the kicker to deliver properly. Hunt doesn’t have the skills of Saad but can still be effective if it’s not going straight to the oppo.
This is something we’d have been training for so not like they are just going to bomb it to an empty forward line as part of a game plan.
The only place I can see this helping is if someone marks around 50 and then a bloke sprints towards the goalsquare, the bloke on the mark cant chase him.
Russian Demon is right, the only way theres a tangible change is with taking a couple plodders off the field.
