I may be wrong but I commend Des for making this call. (Not that he had a lot of choice.) Witt was very good for us in the first half of last year and in some games ran the side around whilst Monas stuffed around at half. He was solid in both attack and defence without rating as outstanding. He certainly didn't let us down and had a couple of blinders. Defensively he struggled around the ST George game but the whole side had the wheels falling off at the same stage. He was then dropped for a number of weeks while Willo, Beaver and Handbag all got their go. Come a semi final and suddenly he was thrust back in again. The side didn't match up and he has spent this season so far in the wilderness. His form in PL (albeit at half) has been good, he has been waiting his chance and has an opportunity to prove a point that he is a first grade player. Noone doubts his potential though his temperament to perform under pressure has been in question. Surely this weekend is time for Witty to stand up and prove he is not a spent force, especially against his Junior club. He is playing for a future contract as well and often players are at the best in this context.
