No disrespect to Benno as I really rate him and think he's a fantastic pro and will be a good club captain but....I'm really worried that we don't have a ball handling player at the back of the Scrum that can create something out of nothing and open up play or get away that vital off load.
We seem too be lacking a bit of flair and one reason maybe that we are a Half back short as that is what the loose forward seems to be in the modern game.
We never really had one last year in all honesty, Marchy was the last one, he had that x factor and could produce that miracle ball and get a second phase attack going but that's been lacking so far this year.
Don't know what everyone else thinks?? It's just my opinion, but would be interested to see if anyone else feels the same way, or, If you totally dis-agree??. Maybe someone like Thompson there could be the answer, big lad with a bit of pace bags of strength, and maybe an offload or two in the locker.
Woody knows the game far better then I'll ever know,best coach we've had for many many a year so,... more likely I'm just out of touch and talking rubbish.
Only a thought!!
