I’m all for speed, composure with the ball, and disposal skills.
That side has one key weakness, and that’s a few lightweight defenders. But they don’t lack courage, are good readers of the play, and can all take a contested mark. Besides which, if they get in trouble, Ambrose smash.
That’s a pretty strong starting point, and why I think we need to be focussing on real quality only. We’ve already got a stable well balanced side.
