“12 months ago we were having discussions around wanting the best players on the ground more often,” Dangerfield said.
“That’s going to disappear if you don’t have the waterboys.
“You want them running to you. You don’t run to them.”
Dangerfield said he likes being in the loop.
“As a player, I still like to have messages, and I like to know what’s going on,” he said.
