I never said I rated them all best 22, that's simply the depth list for the inside mid position where I see it.Thanks.
That‘s great you’ve got Dow, Kennedy & Stocker as settled best 22, is that why Cripps is currently getting all the support he could ever ask for?
Seen any of Phillips’ highlights or read any reviews? How does his pace, outside game and skill compare to each of these?
Cripps, Kemp, Murphy, Ed, Walsh and Setters would be my first choice unit as of right now, with a nod to O'Brien for some burst towards the outside of that. I'd love to be able to put SPS in that role, but his acceleration after the first step is just terrible, and I don't know if we can do anything to fix it.
I haven't been looking into any prospects this year, but going off the sizzle reel, Phillips clearly has an exceptional first few steps and balance. That allows him to execute and find space virtually at will near the contest, but he clearly shows a lack of top end speed at times, though that seems to be a technique/push-off issue more than anything. He would be a point of difference inside, but I'd like to know why we can't train Dow to deliver that, because that's something Paddy had when he came to the club.
If it works out he's sitting there at our first pick, I'd be casting an eye over what we're being offered to trade out of the position before pulling the trigger, but I see why you're interested. Likewise would want to know what we'd be giving up to secure him if he's set to be picked ahead of us.
