I understand the smaller forward line is intended to chase and pressure the defenders to lock the ball into our F50 however, that hasn't happened for quite a few weeks.
The ball comes out way too easily with the smaller forwards getting outnumbered and out-marked in our forward line.
Whilst were a high pressure side, the tackling doesn't stick or are at the level of other clubs, therefore I would prioritise good ball movement/foot skills and contested marking skills to maximise our chances at shots on goal.
I'd rotate Jackson/Gawn going through the ruck, forward line and bench with Melksham/N-B to rotate through the middle and with Spargo/Picket/Fritsch as his kicking to a leading target skills are sublime.
I'd have Jackson in the Ruck and Gawn in the forward line when either Brown or Tmac are on the bench, but then we also have the option to stretch a backline with height on a dry deck.
Ben Brown also then takes the best defender and makes backlines worry and double team him, he will open up Fritsch and Tmac as better targets, Pickett will have more influence on the game with him as a target.
