Totally the right call. He's the integral cog in the attacking structure that we've worked on all year.Good game from young Dykes, was stoked to see him get a try and he looked elated , had a feeling he would snag a try or 2 in this game
Kennedy will come straight back into replace him though no ifs or butts and I think for the finals campaign that's the right call
Unless we decide to play him in the centres, a decision at some stage will need to be made between him and Kennedy.
He's too classy for the wing, not that there's anything wrong with the winger class.
We haven't seen him peppered by the high ball under pressure yet. The Bulldogs game might be a good year in a couple of weeks.We can't have both, not sure Kennedy can really play any other positions.
I wonder if Dykes takes that FB spot next year if he has a killer off season. He's not going to play 5/8th with Moylan and Kennedy is off contract, also an opportunity to save some money by bringing up Dykes.
As mentioned his support around the ruck and elusiveness is a breathe of fresh air, and he seems to have all the other key FB skills too.
Keen to see how we looks with Moylan coming back in.
All in a similar position maybe? They could all be coming in and out of the team or changing positions depending on who’s available.Congratulations to him and Nothing against Dykes but what quality are the other 5/8‘s then if he can win it after only playing 6 out of 24 rounds?
