I think the biggest thing today for mine is what I’ve had echoing in my head over the last 2 weeks that Dimma stayed after the flag last year.
He said (and I’m paraphrasing here): “We really wanted to come up with a gameplan and style of play that didn’t mitigate other teams strengths or did anything except emphasise the strengths of our players and the way we wanted to play.”
The first thing I think of when I think of that is… Playing players in their preferred position first of all, that is the easiest correction to make.
Hooker - Back
Stringer - Majority forward (isolated on his opponent) and still pinch hitting in stints through the midfield.
Those two moves alone made us look a far different and most importantly, far more dangerous side.
Let’s just hope that’s how we keep things.
We’ve also got a lot more talent to come back into the side from today:
Are all players that can come in and are or could be best 22 players based on form.
Please Worsfold, keep playing to our players strengths and not how you would like your ideal team to play and as a result putting square pegs in round holes.
