Yeah totally agree re Murray being more effective because of his situation i.e. playing behind a big pack that gets on the front foot. Compare it to Jazz last year. Our pack (even though it wasn't big) would get on top, Jazz would come on and be super effective. This year its just not happening. We are not setting Jazz up to make an impact.We only had their measure till Ken went off the field, then we struggled to get going downtown without a penalty. The way our pack is balanced, someone of Jazz's stature to flourish i.e stay reasonably fresh, allowing for punch in his runs, and be looking to step in between gaps and offload as Murray tends to do. The workload needs to be more evenly spread, he can't be playing 80mins making that many tackles, and that many runs whilst remaining effective. Even Murray only plays 60mins, and I rate him somewhat higher than Jazz in overall ability but thats just me.
Also Murray has the ability to play the ball super fast which really makes a difference for getting on the front foot. Jazz not as much at the moment
