Weight is probably more important than height, however, but they are still heavier than 19 other clubs. The team needs more grit and toughness in the line up to protect their skill guys that they have now amassed. Personally, I'd like to see a lot more nasty injected into our defense.
I'm not surprised with guys like Sutton etc in the line up, but take away the 2 to 5 min every second game guys and I bet were bottom 5.
