When was it a Richardson / Woosher era? Richardson had been there for 5 minutes. Was it under him that Ratten and Caracella were poached? Or was Ratten already there?at some point, you need to stop copying and try build your own model.
Nothing wrong with taking parts that work. But we don't have a Dusty to break games apart...so we're limited in how we can copy.
And they don't just grow on trees.
Brasher seems to be all about defining ourselves. Will see how that pans out.
Rutten is being strongly backed though....maybe too strongly backed, i don't know. But for now his vision is the vision for the club.
Woosha & Richardson era is over.
Townsend delisted today. Another "be like Richmond" element removed.
Also a limited player and one we are stacked with (mid-sized forwards)
Our next 2 years will be interesting
Strong draft hand this year.
$$$ to burn and the right targets for once (it's a shame Dunkley didn't come off this year).
Hurley, Hooker, Zaka will retire. Hepp will be close.
An overall changing of the guard from what was the post-Sheeds Knights/Hird era.
Not sure what other changes he made? I'm sure he shook the place up (from public perception, absolutely required).
