yep Brisbane will succeed Richmond as the dominant species, just a question of whenI disagree. We could use another inside mid but the way we play doesn’t require a Tom Mitchell type, or for stats to be racked up with chips across half back. We don’t play the possession game.
if we changed our style, I’m sure Cotchin, Martin and others could go back to the bigger numbers but why on earth would we want to do that?
It’s harder to stop a team that doesn’t rely on one or two guys getting big numbers every week. We play pressure and meterage. It stands up in finals.
I think Brisbane are looking pretty similar with what they are trying to do. This makes Neale an interesting player for them with his ability to put up big numbers within that system. It will be interesting to see how that develops.
