i might be missing something but our kicking game looks ridiculous.Lyon goes ok but what then?ballin kicks occasionally from dummy half and bailey is ordinaryÂ at best.foran was recently quoted as saying he is working hard on his kicking as he has never been a specialist kicker before. orford was not only kicking short and badly last year,he was also being isolated as he was often our only option.we were just too predictable in this area and our field position was terrible. one thing that many have forgotten in all this halves debate is that the best kicker by a mile is not in the 17.Hodkinson has a great boot on him ,both long and short and with lyon as an option also we would not suffer in comparison to most teams. without a long and varied kicking game you are toast in this era of field position. i see afew hard lessons being learned early on.hopefully we are not too far back before we realise we need a halfback,not two very good players trying to be one.remember we are away for 4 weeks and could conceiveably lose them all so we better not let things drift if they dont work early on. look at tigers -farrah,marshall,tui,tuquiri and a few of the other sidekicks can all kick. i smell a big bad rat this monday.
