For the purpose of the exercise i have removed all rucks and KP players plus duds like bate
i just worry that our list is balanced far too heavily on outside players and its maybe why we have been accused of being 'bruise free' and downhill skiers, because when the going gets tough i dont think we have enough blokes who can go in an win the hard footy

GENUINE INSIDE TYPES

Clint Bartram
Nathan Jones
Jordan McKenzie
Brent Moloney
Luke Tapscott
Jordan Gysberts
Jack Trengove


you could easily argue to swap a couple ie scully into the inside group and sylvia, but i believe both have been used just as much 'outside'

i think our midfield group is lacking a luke ball type or two
at last count 8 genuine outside players werent in our best 22 and i think we may have over recruited in this department

As for outside players with elite footskills, look no further than Blease.

At the moment he is struggling after his broken leg, but have a bit of faith in the kid.

He will be a weapon if he comes good.

Col Sylvia will become a more outside oriented player as the Trengove's, Gysberts' and Scully's develop IMO. He also has elite footskills.

😮
