I take your point he's 33.This would benefit the younger players but i think for DCE, at 33, Club, QLD captain i think it would be a case of being too late?
By now with his experience and standing he would be the mentor.
I look at it this way. Our clubs not opposed to employing specialist coaches. With mentors like Marty and Jake and DES and the rest, we Still have spud working on things with forwards.
Snake with Turbo but you'd think all fullbacks.
Origin with all its stars and coaches. Yet I believe Qld have thurston doing work with the halves.
It's just DCE game management that he needs to think about differently.
My point with Cronk & Thurston, I think it would take someone of their standing to even have DCE at this point in time listen. But he would be crazy not to tap into their knowledge, his game is far from perfect.
