I think we’ll be a better side when we defend better in midfield and offer more on the spread.
It’s fair to say Worsfold has his fingerprints all over the Adelaide blueprint, and i think it’s reasonable to suggest he’s trying to develop something similar at Ess.
This is what Adelaide do, only Sloane is really a centre square specialist (and he’s not slow), the two crouches are basically generic inside/outside mids who just run super hard both ways. All 183-187cm ie mid size. Then Cameron gets centre square time, Douglas, Greenwood, Betts etc - not exactly clearance beasts - but all move well, and defend well, and do damage when they get it on the turnover.
With that as the general plan, and with how well they’ve played all year: do you think Watson, Myers, Howlett are much of a loss?
Would they be close to a game at Adelaide or Sydney or GWS?
