I think i should also add, i love the way dea goes about footy. pure heart. I just don’t think we can have too many poor kicks, especially out of defense, and we don’t seem to have come up with strategies to cover players like dea or ambrose. If we did have visible strategies to always get it out of their hands and have over lap run from our wicked half back line all the time, i’d be very much in favour of them playing in the firsts.
I also think having players that do damage with the ball curbs the forwards you’d want to dea to be stopping.
So, good last resort depth but i’d rather a team with all of our taller (not tall) defenders than dea and ambrose.
