I didn’t like the look of the bench, I thought they should have stuck with Weekes over Woods.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.
Don't forget McInnes acts as a back up hooker, and they often have Trindall as additional utility. Plus they have Nikore and Talakai who play 2nd row and equally as effective at centre. They have a wonderfully balanced line upI didn’t like the look of the bench, I thought they should have stuck with Weekes over Woods.
However the Sharks use 4 forwards on the bench and have been successful..
Slightly cryptic there maxta lol.Found it strange Weekes was not there also, but a few things I do know.
There's things we don't have access to on Silvertails, behind the scenes things.
Also think the coaches felt Tigers strength was their pack, so went in looking to go in big with forwards, to stay fresh in the middle to help reduce impact of Papalli, API, Bateman, Klemmer and that big 8 hula who chased Turbo....it was a good Tigers pack and if we contained this we win, which happened in the end.
He's flat out trying to get a starting spot in Reggie's at the moment.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
