A couple of things for me

1. I am always happy when a local kid stays at his club
2. If he came to us it had a Glenn Stewart feel to it. A player who wanted to stay at a club and was forced out - unless he had motivation and drive there is a heap of risk there

Souffs don't need that high-priced teenager. They have Latrine and "The Jet" out of their backline and still put 60 on Easts. Good thing they retained Johnson.
Watching how The Tits' and Souffs' backlines play should be the blueprint for ours in 2021. We must opt for the young and speedy over the slow and injured:
DCE, The Shoe, Harper, Funa, Sandwich, Hoppa Jnr, Turbo...
Walker released, Suli as a back-up forward, Jorge retired, Parker as a back-up utility, Foran as a coaches pet.

Titans showed us how to at the new style of footy. Long early passes from hooker and the halves and give your speedsters time and space. It is so simple but so effective

100% been saying it all year we need to spread the ball left to right and back all day. Fast, tall, agile, powerful & skilful backs will win this style of game!!!

Roosters has/had the best defence in the game with the best discipline and they were completely outplayed last night.

Also have to have your best attacking and creative players on the park to execute that type of more open and expansive footy . Knights defence [ and i only saw half the match ] however seemed as fragile and disorganized as Manly [ on many occasions this season ] and Brimson is a brilliant attacking weapon . From what i saw of South"s effort last night , they would have to be the real bench mark for playing outstanding 2020 style and game breaking footy and again they seem to have the creative and individually gifted players to make it happen . Hopefully Manly at full strength next season will be able to go to a much better and adjustment level to be a competitive force again .

The new rules changes make some of the tactics for the 9’s format really handy to cross over.
That’s the style of footy we all love to watch. The free flow attack this year has the 9’s and the Walker brothers coaching all over it : )

C’mon 2021!
