Question for you Mt Smart - do you think that the additional of Chad Townsend to play along side Johnson rather than Tommy Leuluai - will be better for the Warriors in the end I don't think he is a better player but better in the position and I think may help Johnson out in the long run?
They look really well suited don't they.
Townsends passing is one of the keys for unlocking the Warriors , him and Tomkins, they both can throw balls ahead for players to run onto....hitting the advantage line with momentum. Otherwise the Warriors big backs were being wasted with ill timed passing....they never get a full wind up before hitting the defenders. and they can cut people right out.
Looks like Townsends there to stay. He gets to play under less pressure with the three ball playing backs which was something the Leuluai Johnson combo lacked a lot of ( Locke was too sporadic ).
Credit where it's due, Townsend was the best player in their first outing against the Bronco's trial team.
Tommy is listed on the Official Warriors website as : Position. Hooker.
Last year it read Position : Half back / Stand off.
