I’m not saying anything about GWS that most of the more articulate/ tactically minded footy commentators and writers haven’t repeatedly pointed out.
When GWS is on they look a million dollars.
But too many of their players are front runners, with little or no defensive mindset.
The usual reason given is too many star draft picks and not enough team focused work horses.
At least we’ve been public about the shortcomings in our game style- hence Rutten etc.
It’s unknown whether GWS has realised a champion team will beat a team of champions.
Shiel’s comments re their training and lack of focus on development would say not yet.
