I personally felt Ambrose was going just fine until he got injured. I remember being surprised by how good he was. Probably because I consider him an extremely hard worker, but rather limited footballer. I felt he also got completely towelled in the final, and that does affect ones opinion.
Hartley however I felt was mostly average. I remember being pretty disappointed with his performances in general. It’s probably because I consider him to have a heap of footballing talent and thought he’d be an excellent fullback. But mostly I was left making excuses for him.
I don’t think we will play both of them. Even though Hurley has slimmed down, I still think they’ll play him in the key position. I think Ambrose is going to give us a good base level performance (with height the isssue), and Hartley is your upside if he can get his game together.
