Thanks for clarifying. I see Barrett giving Croker a defined role early in the season and as he gains experience (and hopefully) confidence his responsibilities will increase. Jake T will take on some playmaking responsibilities and I think we will see a bit more general play kicking from Api.
Barrett stated he'd give Croker protected minutes and roles. If you have a passenger in the team like that it never bodes well. I get the development piece. I'd rather see him tear the NSW Cup apart for a few rounds before he gets a shot though.
He's not explosion and impact like Foran. He'll be spot defended in my opinion if his form in Canberra is anything to go by, so I hope Thompson is ready to tackle for him.
I just don't get why Barrett thinks he is anywhere near ready. 5/8 is such a crucial role.
Then again, what do I know.
