I'm changing my perceivement of Burns and Monas ability to feed the backline quality ball. Today on many occasions when the ball is let go out wide, it generally get's caught with G Stewart and to a lesser extent Watmough. I understand we play centre- a- side and play the 2nd rowers on the edge of each ruck, but it stifles the ball flow. I guess we persist until we gel more in attack or maybe the centre on the short side could occasionally when positionally able to, chime into the backline instead of the 2nd rower - when was the last time we've seen both centres in a backline movement? Maybe this type of play could be called a few times a game. Something on Brett Stewart. Last year a few people thought and i agreed that he seemed lacklustre in running the ball back from kicks, and i think that has been improved since those comments were made. He is probably not NSW/Aust player yet, but he's going to get there. If i could give him one extra skill, it would be take on a fullback with a step at pace when he breaks the line (eg: like Thurston/Bowen etc..). I feel when he breaks the line at times, his only weapon is to try and run "around" the fullback and beat him with sheer pace, however often this forces him somewhat sideways to get around the fullback, allowing the edge of the defence to come back and cut him off, if the sideline hasn't already. Players like Bowen, Hunt etc etc.. can sprint to the fullback and put on steps to wrong foot the fullback and continue on their way. Brett can step off the mark and sprint, we saw that aginst the rooters, but I'd like to see him take the fullback on WHEN IT'S THE BEST OPTION when he has split the defence instead of sucumbing to the defence when he realises he hasn't got the room to run around the defender.
