I will start by saying Souths have a very good coaching set up.
Secondly South’s have a forward pack with good depth, a very good rotation from the bench and will match it with any pack in the NRL. Many have been critical of the players signed and released, Arrow and Host make the pack stronger. I am hoping Amone realises that he has a second chance, when he was released noone came knocking, now back at Souths he has a chance to show he is worth having.
Having said that my concern comes when Cody and Latrell go missing /injured, Souths become very one dimensional in attack.
Souths have not had a strike centre since GI or Dylan Walker. Many thought Roberts would be that strike centre but he was found wanting.
If, and this is a big if, Moga can stay on the field he will be that strike centre and give Souths another attack focus.
I expect Moga to start the season with Gagai on the wing. Moga due to his size and speed will attract defends which will open space both inside and outside him.
We all saw the effect Suli had in attack for Manly , Moga is better.
Milne is another interesting signing, also has the size and speed but as yet has not shown alot.
Let’s remember Souths will go through a difficult period during SOO, with 5 incumbent players and then there is the possibility of Latrell being picked as well. South’s depth will be tested and South’s need to be well placed in the top 8/4 at the start of Origin.
Can’t wait for the preseason so we can see these players first hand.
