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.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.
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.
