But yeah, Sutton and Sandow will need to become more consistent for us to win, although Luke effectively plays as a half anyway so with a gun season from him we'll do very well.
Injuries were rough on you, but really your defense was not good enough alot of the time. The Tigers game at homebush was an example of a close game that was lost due to a lack of defensive application. The game at CUA was a truly pathetic performance even if we were on fire that night. You won't win a comp without tightening that up.
Luke, while an excellent creative outlet is not a replacement for a halfback by any stretch. Still don't rate Sandow, though I reckon Sutton could have a huge year. Be very surprised if you don't make the 8 after all that though.
