But the Pat game plan also means we need forwards with fitness, enough speed and ball-playing skills, who can link with the backs (nearly if not fully) in the way the Scarlets ones do. You can't just do it with good backs these days (almost) however much ball you get - there is too little space and well-organised defences. Look at the Bath back-line for instance - the reason Bath are not doing it is (IMO) mainly because they don't have enough forwards who can link with their backs in the way I mention. Their backs are one of the best sets of backs there are but that is not enough.

There are not many forwards in the Rob Evans, Aaron Shingler, category unfortunately but I'm sure Pat's focus will certainly be about getting forwards who can play the way I mention BUT who are also good enough at the traditional forward duties. He'll be hopign John Afoa can still consistently be like that for a start.
