They say it is the team with the best defence that wins the premiership. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on how our defence will be next year compared to the year just gone. My thoughts are that the guys we have brought in to our top 17 all seem to be strong defenders, with the occasional lapse from Taupau. But will it take time to develop the structures and combinations with so much change in personnel up the middle. Losing Ballin leaves a hole.
