In recent years Beau Scott was a formidable opponent. I have no qualms about that.
But i have ask when does it become apparent that the minutes you play(less then 16 a half last year) vs the impact you and culture you bring wear thin?
Iam of the opinion that he is taking up a spot in the 17 where we could have a player who will have greater effect or should i say more value then what we are getting from Beau. I know what some will say or but in defence we tighten up and his experience helps. Now that is true but for what a whole 30minutes a game? I see better value elsewhere.
So tell me your thoughts on Beau and if his value in our 17 is worth it and why?
Big fan here, hes been outstanding for the club but think he'll be struggling to hold a 17 spot this year.
Snake who do you feel is knocking on Beau door?
Thats a very personal question Scott and this is a family site.
I certainly agree with you. Gallen averages 60 minutes . Its a far cry from 30 or so from Beau.
He’s been great for the Eels but I’m beginning to think he’s almost past his use by date. Cant see him being used as much this year.
His toughness and experience is still invaluable and really can't be accurately measured. It comes down to a feel thing I would imagine for BA. The other thing is that the player himself has too much pride in his own performance to hang on one season too many.
I havent bagged him. Read my blog i stated when does his value diminish? Lets be realistic he alone hasnt won a game like say Semi , Hayne , Gutho , Moses . Iam saying his minutes vs impact appear lacking. And in place Morera no chance.
