I’m absolutely not defending Daly’s poor showing under the high ball, but I don’t see that we have many alternatives? We can’t rely solely on Brown. He’s still a very safe option, but his ability is on the wane and it’s too much of a risk to rely on him being fit without testing other options. With Watson injured, the realistic alternatives are to give Daly more time in the role, recall Goode or gamble on Woodward. Given that Eddie’s shown no signs of the latter two, Daly is the only real option. We could try Slade or Lozowski at 15 but neither play there regularly for their clubs either and at least Daly has more experience in the back three from a positional point of view.
