Agreed, but everyone knows you should have two NRL-standard hookers in your 30-man squad. This was poor judgement from our officials.Hindsight is a perfect thing isn't it. Its easy to be right after the fact.
The Blade Runner was recovering from a serious shoulder injury and likely to miss a large chunk of the early season. This was known, not hindsight.
And also the tactic of having two quality hookers in your 17 was also a proven formula for success. Not hindsight.
Other clubs knew this. Take The Faders as an example. When Hodgson's season ended they still had two quality hookers in their squad so his absence was no barrier to them making the final four.
