That's not really the issue. And in hindsight I will cut Isaako some slack here as others have pointed out. The issue is the abysmal defensive structure, or utter lack of it, out wide, particularly on the right edge. The SF v Eels is a classic case among many. There was no cohesive, sliding line with each attacker marked by a defender. What line there was was broken and staggered leaving space for the attack to exploit. Too often attackers outnumbered defenders. We stood flat footed and moved sideways and not up in defence to pressure the ball runner ... WTF?Why we now have a genuine 7 and not a hooker playing out of position
Then there were 2 defenders on 1 ball carrier leaving a free corridor for an unmarked support. What a fucking disgrace, and the Eels just smashed us as any side would have. On one occasion Isaako had 3 runners to mark. Bloody hell (even though his positioning was crap - OUT of the line either too forward or too far back.)
THIS is what Seibold has to address this preseason and in hindsight I am disappointed he failed to deal with our defensive dog's breakfast out wide this year. especially on the right side.
Boyd on the wing or centre? Irrelevant given the above. Croft? Great! However fix the defence or Croft's presence will be irrelevant.
