2022 NRL Squads – Nothing But Rugby League
[…] 2021 NRL Squads 2023 NRL Squads […]
I like the look of the bulldogs in 2023 though there is still a question mark over half at the moment and maybe fullback depending on how well Dufty goes next year. So their spine is still not top grade standard yet. But perhaps with the addition of some good forwards like Pangai Junior, Paul Vaughan, Reed Mahoney and Viliame Kikau to the likes of Jackson, Faitala-Mariner, Thompson and Hetherington this may change things and allow the likes of the current halves Averillo, Flanagan, Wakeman or even Biondi-Odo to be at their attacking best. Halves are only as good as the forward pack leading them and creating opportunities. But I think the addition of Burton is important as he can be a game changer even when the team is under pressure. So he needs to take control of the middle. So the half is going to be feeding the ball to Burton a lot.
But maybe a creative half like maybe Biondi-Odo could exploit opportunities around the middle when the forwards get a roll on. So next year I think will be a test for all the half backs to stand up and se shall see how they go. So I think our half back is a wait and see. Gould and Barret must be reasonably happy with the current stock of halves otherwise they had the money to chase the likes of Johnson, Fogarty, Hynes, Townsend, Milford who were all available.
We have a good hooker for 2023 and as mentioned Dufty may be the answer for fullback. But there are other current players that may shine with a good forward pack like Corey Allen. Even Ado Carr wants to try his hand atfullback and may prove a great move. He is fast and elusive like Barba and with room may tear teams up. It will also be interesting to see how Marshall King goes as I rate him as a half and hooker so he may prove a good utility player. He has a half mentality so he may get some opportunities next year with a good forward pack.
