Thank you for the mocking response. Yes most teams have a big forward, but not all teams are no.1 in centre clearances and have the leagues best ruckmen. Additionally not all teams have the 5th highest goal kicker amongst big forwards despite the fact McDonald missed more games than 4 of 5 goal kickers above him. Also some big forwards such as Buddy and McDonald will be more advantaged by the new rules than forwards that score more goals on the lead like Ben Brown.
I could have spelt that out but I thought it was obvious.
The rules will advantage both forwards on the lead (no double teaming from centre bounces) and forwards one on one. It might just be me but it seems like Buddy tends to use his hands for that little push off for space more than others. I think of all players he will benefit more than other forwards (if he can get supply). But that's just me.
And here you are telling me that what you've written is obvious?
From what we've seen in the JLT the 6-6-6 rule has resulted in quicker exits from the centre bounce and more balls being kicked forward into a genuine 50/50 contest, but I'll keep my powder dry before making wild assumptions on which team will be better off this year simply because the new rule changes suit 3 of their players.
