We need a freshening up of the panel, eh, with more experienced lads. thats how big a mess things were. But lads like Shane Durkin and Paul Schutte have bags of experience now and should steady the ship in the backs. We’ve some really good young defenders/players but felt that some of them were getting picked despite being in poor enough form because the bench was not there to push them further. Others were rushed in a bit too quickly.
As Lost says above the one benefit is that we’ve quite a few young players now who are blooded and know whats required. I think they’ll really benefit from having a bit more experience about the place - not to mention the physicality we’ve missed.
Like they said in the radio last night A.Quinn looks to be in razor sharp form (6 points from play v Cuala) and has pace so bring him in and see what he can do. Likewise Whitley and Winters scored heavily, if they go well again this weekend then they’ve got to be worth a look.
Danny, Schuttes (x2), Cronin, Durkin, Ryan, I’m sure i’m forgetting more. there’s bags of potential there.
