Yeah, all of a sudden signings like Jensen, Walters, re-signing both Kelly and Gamble, Hoeter, Periera, etc are starting to look like a very wise move. Depth is really going to be tested and though none of these guys are superstars they all have a decent amount of experience and will slot in and do a job if covid rocks the starting line up.Definitely something we could have done without and it seems covid is going to be impacting the game yet again this season but at least all teams are on the same page in terms of any "bubble" requirements.
Given the calibre of guys who are running the club these days I'd like to think many hours have been spent in the boardroom around a spreadsheet developing a pretty comprehensive risk register identifying every possible way covid could affect the club.
They should have the likelihood of each sector of the business been impacted and potential consequences and all mitigation measures ready to go so that regardless of what happens we have a plan ready to put into place.
Our ability to replace players who miss games because they're positive could have a pretty large bearing on results this year.
