That’s only true if
A) Green is significantly fitter thus puts on more defensive pressure
B) Green is significantly faster
C) Green is a better all round crumbing player
And ‘if’ these are true are they more important than Laverde’s attributes over Green in the context of our current set up. You may well be right but I think we need more than one week (especially one where it’s the kids first game of the year) to see if it can work. Also remembering this isn’t the coaches first choice it’s a forced change.
