Jacob Preston seems to be coping ok at the bulldogs...Many here can't understand why Fainu was omitted. I too was surprised.
But isn't an obvious explanation simply that he is a raw teenager and could use a break in his first season in NRL.
Not to mention he has shown every indication he is going to be a top level player, so... do we look after him and nurture his development ... or keep sending him out to cover for the lazy bastards who are established but not bothering to make the effort plays?
Which reminds me..
Aloia said he'd make it up ten-fold for his clanger v Souths... still waiting Josh!
Apparently, we couldn't fit him in!
