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. 

Thoughts?

    • You should be rested from this site forever!!

  • They need to do this earlier.

    I think this style of play isn't sustainable we like to run down the middle of teams and the last 6 weeks we've been paying a price for it.

    RCG & Jnr Paulo seem tired and blunted from that initial 10 weeks of brutality they dished up and while being effective.Thee amount of minutes these guys are playing especially RCG wasn't sustainable.

  • BA passed the last servo several miles back, running on empty, car spluttering and shitting itself, steam out the radiator and a short couple of k's to the beach. Hoping like hell he can roll into the top four and snag just one final.
