To be honest, I’d have chopped Kelly out and got an upgrade but we are where we are.CM absolutely needs to be a top priority. We ask a lot of the 2 CMs in our system and you need bodies to keep Sheaf and Hamer fresh. Kelly always has a spell on the sidelines and we need an experienced player in there.
Eccles is a good talent and throwing him in at the deep end could probably damage his growth.
Our PPG without Kelly was not good last year and it’s no surprise that we finished the season with James and Kelly in that role.
