We keep getting served up the fact that King's spindly legs and over-developed torso are the reason for his pathetic performances. I'm told that even the Princess himself is spruiking that line as the reason for his poor form (first hand witness account passed on to me). The fact that he's making excuses for himself, rather than trying to rectify the situation is troubling. Here's one thought that he could implement immediately. In Union, one of the critical factors of the game is body height at the "breakdown". Seems to me that King could learn from this. When he goes into the tackle he is generally very upright and, if legs are his problem, he is easily unbalanced and then dominated. I wonder if he couldn't adopt a Union forwards' approach by dropping the body height just before the tackle and using his "over-developed" upper body as something of a battering ram. At the very least I'd imagine he'd bend the line more than he does. It ain't rocket science, but it could work. It will however take someone committed to the cause to do it. That might be the problem.
