Stewart: still has some pace and a great player but is quicker between the ears than feet these days. Tafua: he's no speedster. Would not be in top 10 for wingers. Matai: lacks genuine speed Lyon: was never noted for his speed, and last year went back a couple of notches Hiku: would be one of the slowest wingers/centres in the comp. DCE: one of the quickest half backs in the comp .... The exception TomT: next to James Roberts would be one of the quickest players in comp .... The exception. Understand that all these players posses other skills that act as an adjunct to the speed component, however the issue here is the lack of pure unadulterated speed. Therefore the signing of Walker would fill one of the few weak links in our backline.
