Sorry if I didn’t explain myself well enough. I think we have enough grunt.
It’s players that can get from contest to contest and get it done on the outside that we didn’t have enough of.
I believe the additions of Saad (release McGrath), Stringer and Smith will help us immensely.
We still have lots of growth to come in most of our mids due to them being talented and still young and developing.
Having Jobe, Myers and Heppell all together in our midfield has held us back for a decade and guys like Hocking and Howlett weren’t going to fix that. We finished 6th for centre clearances this year which indicates the big body’s helped around the contest, but finished dead last for stoppages because our mids couldn’t cover the ground fast enough to get to more contests.
I think Skipworth will come with a fresh approach this preseason and we will see much better structures around the ball and I expect our midfield will improve dramatically.
In my opinion we need to continue to add class to our midfield and not more grunt.
