2,3,4,5 are our weak spots and our depth is probably worse.
Looking at our players how many would get picked up by the top 4-6 teams?
Maybe Berry on potential ? Montoya as a cheap buy? I would have looked at Murchie for centre but this process would have kicked off in Nov 21.
I’m worried about our backs.
Good analysis agree with all of that
My following post is only loosely connected to yours but was inspired by your thoughts
According to random fans on the Internet who I spent the afternoon watching in their YouTube clips the warriors biggest issue which will lead therm to not making the 8 is the lack of a quality stand off.
Joe random analyst does not rate any of our dudes who we can pair up with Shaun Johnson.
Another random YouTube clip I watched said the game has changed in the last two years and the most important guy in your team for scoring points has become the stand-off.
Any team without both an elite 7 and an elite 6 has no chance at the top six.
We all knew this and know this intuitively as fans. Luke metcslf could have been good enough to get us across the line and we should have offered better players to sharks to entice them into a player swap.
That ship had sailed. He isn’t coming in 2022
Our last remaining card we have up our sleeve to satisfy this new 2020s requirement is to play Reece at 6 this year and someone else eg Chanel Harris-Tavita at fullback.
We did play Reece at 6 in the trial
This could actually be in the mixer of the warriors think tank
I would be in favour of such a move
I think our chances of making the finals would improve by an order of magnitude even in random joe nrl fans minds.
