Question is whether that approach has a ceiling on it, somewhere below "Premiership". Maybe it works when you're running a dynamic forward line, but does a more cavalier approach to the game stand up in September? Isn't that what (theoretically) Ratten struggled with when he was at the helm? Love Teague as a breath of fresh air, think his ideas have merit, just not sure it's a philosophy that wins flags for a club.Teague may not be a household name, but I reckon there would be plenty of players quietly enticed by the idea of a coach letting them play to their strengths, especially if they feel somewhat stifled at their current club. Teague projects as someone that players will want to play for. In fact that's already been the case with Gov.
What about attracting quality assistants? I'd be attracted to joining a team where I might be given a fair bit of empty canvas to play with.
No doubt a risk, but something about Teague just instills confidence and projects as creating something different, while the more experienced Scott or Lyons aren't likely to bring anything we haven't seen before.
