Train Prop or Second Row?

Post by Guest on Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:38 am

I've got two potential XV players coming up through my YA this season, I was going to focus training on my prop, as my front row is a bit light but as his skills are becoming clear, at most he can only have a total of 60 TSP, where as my Lock has 73 TSP. I only have space to train one of them as i already have two players on a training program which doesn't finish for at least 2/3 seasons.

Prop
Ike Kidner
Nationality -England/ Weight -135kg/ Height - 184cm/ Birthday Round 11, Day 2/ Stars 48

Right handed, right footed, in decent form Stable.
An aggressive player with collected discipline, decent leadership, and non-existent experience.

Stamina: Decent/ Handling: Low/ Attack: Average/ Defense: Admirable/
Technique: Satisfactory/ Strength: Reputable/ Jumping: Horrible/ Speed: Limited/
Agility: Moderate Kicking: Horrible

Lock
Kyle Cowen
Nationality England/ Weight 121kg/ Height 203cm/ Birthday Round 5, Day 1/ Stars 16

Right handed, right footed, in average form Stable.
A conservative player with reckless discipline, admirable leadership, and non-existent experience.

Stamina: Reputable/ Handling: Reputable/ Attack: Admirable/ Defense: Princely/
Technique: Limited/ Strength: Admirable/ Jumping: Satisfactory/ Speed: Average
Agility: Limited/ Kicking: Horrible

Let me know what you think

Before looking at your players I'd say if you're cramped for space to train then more likely the prop as they can be trained useing fewer nets. However saying that lock is quite possibly the key player given the BR match engine.

Locks do require a lot of training with the requirement to stick 2 jumping nets on them in addition to everything else, arguably only kicking fullbacks and maybe 8s are harder to train. So if you have 9/10 nets available you won't ever regret training a lock. But if you've more like 5/6 nets going then the prop is who I'd train.

Looking at your actual players your lock would absolutely want 2 jumping nets, and whilst technique isn't as important as defence and strength for a lock he'll want 2x tech as well for a while, so he'll take a lot of nets for a long time, but is the far better player. As your lock also has quite low speed he wouldn't easily slot into the back row, and at 203cm you may end up wanting him in the back row in 7-8 seasons time.

Not perhaps a straight forward decision, but either way you should end up with a quality player. And I must say that's an amazing player for 16 stars, lucky blighter.
