I can’t quite put my finger on what and where it is going pear shaped but both FBs are getting badly mauled under the present system. Indisputable fact.
If it’s a one on one – the FB must shoulder any blame – but more often than not, it isn’t.
When it is two against one or three against two … The fact that the the FBs are inexperienced is just one more factor in this unfortunate mix.
I suspect that the crux of the matter is that the CBs have got so much on their own plate to cope with that they aren’t able to take any sort of broader view of what is happening.
I really like O Malley – he’ll be a good un. Hornshaw might well be too but it certainly ain’t gonna be at RB!
What is this big thing about not playing Onariase? – He’s been on the bench for a long time so must be assumed fit.
Is it the same thing with Cox that we’ve seen where MacAtee and Eisa are concerned?
The bits we’ve seen of the guy make him look pretty good.
It might be worth a shot finding out if playing him alongside Cordner would get the best out of him. If we were to do that as a trial, the more experienced Bedeau could take over at LB if required but RB has been exposed far more from what I’ve seen and is the greater problem.
