I'm still stunned that some are suggesting we boot Kemp after two solid but not outstanding first grade matches, two outstanding trial performances, and another trial performance that I haven't seen. He kicked the winning points, and was elusive in broken play.
I've seen at least two people suggest that we replace him with Kirk and have Jones kick the goals. Fair enough. It means a drop from about 90% goal kicking accuracy to about 75%...or lower if goals are taken from the sidelines. To those suggesting that we do this, who do you propose kicks goals for the 30 or so minutes that Jones isn't on the field while he continues to build up his fitness and game time?
I would keep Denan Kemp in the team because hes the best player for his position, not because of his goal kicking. I would still have him in the team even if he didnt goal kick. His goal kicking isnt that great anyway. I believe hes a vital player in our backline, and will be as the season goes further on into the year.
