The modern game just gets quicker each year & to have explosive dummy halves to exploit this, is a bonus to take advantage of some big boppers who will bend the line & create 2nd phase. Young Parcell is as good as the top shelf players who came from Qld cup to shape Melbourne for many years & Imo, will explode from day 1 behind a super pack. Api is also the new age dummy half who can zip out against tired or laterally challenged markers, to gain massive momentum. It all starts in that ruck & though Tommy T & Taufua will reap top tryscorers, the damage will be in that middle third, something lacking in recent times. As a massive Ballin fan, the way the game is played today & more so tomorrow, I think Barrett & co got it 100% right with the recruitment, especially the 9's.
