Coach Keeps Line Options Close
Telford Tigers coach Tom Watkins is refusing to separate his squad into permanent lines, as he looks to make the most of his recent signings.
The addition of Joe Miller, Ricky Plant, Dan Scott and Dan Davies, has forced Watkins to juggle his line-ups.
That has led to fears that some players will miss out on ice time, but the Tigers boss wants to keep his opponents guessing.
He said: “With Joe Miller coming in, we’ve now got much more balance in our lines. I don’t want to have a first, second and third line.
“We have now got three very similar lines, which for a coach is great. It means we can match up with the other side’s lines much better and gives us a lot of confidence.”
