I wanted to talk about something that's been on my mind as we edge closer to the new season. We're talking defence, specifically the outside back rushing in defence strategy we've clung to like a safety blanket. It's had its moments, sure, but let's be real—this tactic is starting to show its age, especially with the way the game's evolving. And that brings us to the big question: Is Brad Arthur ready to adapt?
Let's talk about why it's crucial, especially for us. Our outside defence has been a bit of a sore spot, hasn't it? And in today's game, with halves that can spot a weakness from a mile off and exploit it before you can blink, we can't afford to give them any chances. Sliding defence could be the game-changer we need, reducing those opportunities for the opposition and giving us a fighting chance to control the game on our terms.
