Resting Players

The top teams of the compeitions have started to rest some of their key players in order to keep them refreshed for the final series. BA hasn't chosen to rest any of his players. Only Mahoney has been given a short break, however thats only been due to his injury. Paulo, Lane and RCG could easily need a break because they have been playing every game this year whilst Matto and Brown have had a few breaks through their concussions and suspensiosn respectively. It can also be argued that Sivo needs a week off so he can recpature some of his form and get more involved in the games like he did last year. 

It has been no secret how bad our attack has been the past couple months, but could this also be the reason why BA hasn't chosen to rest players. Whilst other teams attacking games our flourishing, our attack has been the worst in the NRL since round 9. So is BA trying to use the remaining 2 games of the season (which are against weak sides) to develop on attacking combination and kickstart our finals campaign.

      • Nah your wrong there mate, he is the best

        •   When was the last time the storm bought a million dollar player? Yet the chooks are the only team that seem to buy toplinets at will. Keary,Teddy,Cronk and Crighton just in the last 3 years.

             no doubt Robbo is a very good coach but until he gets out his comfort zone we will never know how good.

              Even Stickey won a title under the protective umbrella of uncle Nic

          • Bellyache has never been away from Melb mate

            •   I wasn't talking location. I do believe the chooks cook the books better than any other team but u probably dont 

  • The way they been playing they have all rested. 

  • Can't rest now because we need that top 4 spot and some cohesion in our attack. Thats what happens when you havent coached any improvement in the team since round 8.

  • We're playing for a top 4 spot 

    If BA rested players now he would be crucified more than he already is.

    What he wouldn't give for another 2 points - the two we handed to the dragons?

  • I would rest BA, Kidwell and Murphy... 

  • win three in a row and everyone gets a rest

  • Players we should rest forever 

    1. 2. Sivo
    2. 4. Blake
    3. 5. Ferguson
    4. 7. Moses
