Garrick needs to learn to kick first..
Its amazing, he can hit em from in front, he can nail them from the sideline, but the space in between, about 15-20m to the left or right of the posts and he has absolutely no hope.. misses them almost every time...
If he wants to kick, he NEEDS to be able to hit from that spot as ide say 80% of our tries are scored in that area and they really SHOULD be sitters for anyone half decent
Tell im e’s dreamin’I've read the article and personally had not thought of this as even a slight possibility....in fact I was not seeing Garrick as a certainty to claim a wing spot.
Having time to put it in perspective, Garrick did definately drop in form in 2020, but lets be fair, the inside service could have made Addo Carr look average....due to poor options, lack of momentum through the middle and the MAIN factor - missing star players like Tom T, Walker, Suli, Schuster will always take away space for a winger.
Thing is, IF Injury free, WHOEVER the Manly wingers are in 2021 i expect both edges to DOUBLE in tries so if -
1) Garrick is IN the side
2) Stay injury free
3) He hits his average over 80 - 85%
There's EVERY chance this could be a chance ....but these other factors need to play out to make it possible, Below is the article from Fox.
If the Sea Eagles are to make the top four in 2021 as predicted then Reuben Garrick should get plenty of opportunities to kick some goals.
The Manly winger scored 16 tries and 194 points in his first season of first grade in 2019, but like his team had a let-down of a year in 2020 to finish with just four tries and 98 points.
However with Tom Trbojevic back from injury setting Garrick up for tries and Kieran Foran conducting play in the halves with Daly Cherry-Evans there is no limit to this side’s attack.
Provided they can fill the dummyhalf role then Dylan Walker and Moses Suli should form a devastating centre pairing that is sure to set up heaps of tries for Garrick to score and convert.
Its amazing really..Seems to be a thing with Manly goal kickers. The 'Bermuda Triangle around that 15-20m mark has caused troubles for DCE and Matty Orford, even Killer too at certain times!
Yeah his got power to be good as edge backrower and can hit in defenceI don’t see Jorge and Garrick on the wings in first grade next season.
I’ve often wonder if Jorge has the strength and ability to become a back rower. I would just worry about him rushing out of the line in defense.
I do get the feeling Jorge is a player that improve on his weakness. For example he was **** under the high ball. I think he’s barely dropped on in the last two seasons. Will be interesting but I’m sure Des has a plan.
