As soon as we all saw our bench had 4 big forwards and no Weekes (or any other utility ) we all feared the same thing.

What if the clearly struggling Turbo breaks down mid game?
What if the clearly struggling Schuster breaks down mid game?
What if god forbid another back is injured mid game?

And hey bingo, we had ALL 3 of the above happen.

Against any other team but the poor awful Tigers we'd have likely lost.

Please explain how the coaches could possibly have agreed on this???

Someone has got to be accountable.

agree - one of our thousand coaches surely could see the multiple coaching errors here ... and speak up - doesn't look like any of them did

I honestly think that he wanted to give Weekes a full game at full back to cover for Tom in origin. When centres or wingers go down they always shift the back rower out to centre which is what they did. Of course johns was an option however aside from 6 & 7 there are really no other positions he can play. I guess in hindsight he could have come on for the schu. I’m not saying Seibs was right however I don’t think it’s so cut and dried that the 4 forward option is incorrect.

Anyone know why Zac Fulton hasn't got a bench spot ? I thought he went real good last year and has that hooker / 13 / second row versatility to him. Surely he's a better option than 4 props on the bench
