I think Cunners is the key. Get a few more years out of him and we will be sitting pretty. Love the stuff coming out of the club highlighting his mentoring, that's what will keep him involved, not the cash.I always knew our future midfield group had talent but outside of Jy Simpkin (who I genuinely think has the ability to be our best mid of the modern era) I was never absolutely convinced that we had a potentially elite group or just a very good group.
But the last two weeks have convinced me. Well, it's actually more than the last two weeks and a heap of little things from this year. But now I'm absolutely sold. Tarryn Thomas the mid looks special, LDU has had his moments, his quarters, his halves. He just needs to put it together and I think he will. And Phillips and Powell both look special. Led by Cunnington -- who I think could well still be here when we're challenging -- and with the possible additions of Horne and (say it quietly) Kelly, it's a ******* tantalising group of players. Obviously we still need to see them actually put it all together and do it, but they're still all so young. It's gonna take time. But when they do it's going to be so fun to watch.
