It exposed some as not being able to be the go guys of a team, but when you have your go to guys in there they open it up for the other blokes. Not to say there isn't some deadwood in our squad, but these blokes won't all be getting a game together in the season proper (unless we have a shocking run with injuries). 1 bad kick or handball piles the pressure on real quick in today's game and if you're trying to link together 6 players all with average skills it comes unstuck real quick, you take out 4 of those dodgy players and replace them with our best then that chain is going to work out much more often than it did in either of the praccys.Absolutely they will help. It also means we’re not expecting A grade output from our role players.
What it has exposed is a bunch of 23-26 year olds who just aren’t up to the mark. That’s where our depth suffers.
