Up until very recently, a strong attacking on option on the right was universally considered our biggest need.
Virtually everyone agreed that Muyl wasn't ideal, and Valot was questionable coming off injury, and not elite anyway. We lost Adams but still had the best defense in the history of the universe, and Rza was reasonably expected to slot in there as an at least decent backfill.
Had we made this move pre-season, it would have been very well received. The fact that Murrillo has fallen off a cliff and Rza has proven not to be a strong #6 doesn't change the fact that we needed an upgrade here.
I don't know why suddenly some people are running with this idea that we didn't need a RM. Until you have a clear starter at a position like that, it's a need. We still don't have a clear starter there and Muyl is not everyone's first choice. I would probably use Rza there but that's not the clear solution either.
The biggest need was outside back and they signed Buckmaster. Not what I would have done, but whatever . It was their pick.
Would have signed a 6 as well, but CCJ is pretty damn good when he plays and Armas just needs to play him.
