    It's been bugging me in the last few hours that Tooves is a top coach but for some reason he doesn't seem to interchange players right
    Last nite the 1st replacement was Kite went off and Buhrer on
    Why replace a big bopper with a small bloke (no offence to Buhrer )
    Really should have put Gower or Rose on
    We seemed to lose a bit of go forward then
    Also later with the game in the balance Choc comes off as well

    I think Tooves relies too much on his 1-13 and not enough on his other big guys sitting there

    I was hoping Gower might have 15 minutes at the end to maybe get some 2nd phase ball away but not to be. Will Buhrer be in the 17 next year?

    Agree. There is no use having 17 players when one only plays for three minutes.

    I agree to certain extent. As for will Buhrer be in the 17 next year, of course he will be, he is class.

    Prop rotation was always going to hurt us. With a fit Ritchie, Joe and Georgey in great form we would have been able to maintain the early momentum.

    It was a brave effort. It isnt like the interchange strategy was any different to throughout the year.

    You've got to have 17 guys running hard over 80 minutes, if you are using only 16 you are not taking full advantage of the numbers.

    Thought Rose came on for Kite? Did BJ come off in the first half? I thought Buhrer came on for Horo.

    As I won't watch the match again, I'm relying on memory.

    I mean will we look at another mobile option in 2014? With Chee Kam, Jake T and Sao possibly stepping up into the bench will Hiku play that role?

    I thought if the game plan was to use gower as little as we did it was silly not to take Hiku in as cover for Brett who came in under an injury cloud and needed to be replaced in that second half as he obviously had hamstring issues and couldn't run freely, the use and make up of the bench has made little sense - we carry too many second rowers.

    To even suggest will buhrer be part of our 17 next year is just a dumb thing to say

    I thought it was poor. Gower, Symonds, Rose barely played, while Buhrer played front rower's type minutes.
