Dylan Brown confident of kicking game
March 17, 2021 5:39 am
Eels five-eighth Dylan Brown says his kicking game was a major factor in Coach Brad Arthur’s decision to switch both halves and back-rowers during the off-season.
Brown formed a handy combination with Shaun Lane on the left edge last year with Mitch Moses and Ryan Matterson on the right, but both pairs have traded places this year.
It got off to a sloppy start in a trial loss to the Panthers and wasn’t much improved in a dire 16-0 first half against Brisbane but started to click thereafter as the Eels staged an impressive comeback 24-16 win at Suncorp Stadium.
So comfortable, Brown says, he’d forgotten there had been a change until prompted by the question.
