With the forward pack they are developing they will go quite well I reckon. They should have Grant and McKendry as their starting front rowers with Kite coming off the bench, Brown and Manu running off the halves out wide.either one of those organisers would of been an excellent signing to partner Johnson in the halves be interesting to see if they both take the feild pairing in the halves next year at the Panthers,both with similar good organising games but limited running attacking flair ala Johnson
Then throw in Soward and Wallace's kicking games they should be getting good field position
this right here goes unnoticed & is underestimated by those who cant read the game properly(the 2 smart footy brains of Gus & Cleary didnt sign them for nothing)its a couple of important tactics Johnson & Leuluai lack at this point ,granted they aint been in shit hot form this year,especially Soward--but a half in this mould with a consistant accurate kicking game,organisational skills, & experience would be an ideal balance pairing for Johnson-also would take a bit of pressure off him so he can concentrate on doing what he does best,attacking the line with his natural flair & running game......if Tomkins dont come,throw some massive $$$$$$$$ at Cronk..hehe
all credit to Tommy though hes gone well & brings a few of these attributes just not on the same level as a half..
