I'm curious as to why NRL teams insist on the same team each week. Certain individuals, Marshall included, noticeably lost quality when playing multiple games in a row. But after enforced stints on the sideline, they returned fresh.

Wouldn't it be better to rest playmakers, maybe have Benji and Reynolds share the role, taking the role for a few weeks at a time, so as to increase their longevity and allow high quality for both players?

Also, this doesn't waste an interchange...
Because Reynolds spent most of the season injured.
Giving them a game off now and then can't hurt too much

But as a player you want to keep a good run going if you are playing well , doesn't take much too lose a bit of timing as a play maker

Benji scrapes a pass mark for this season. Some quite good games mixed with a lot of absolute rubbish. Same old Benji. We could barely make the finals when he was in his prime.
He'll be seeing a fair bit of ISP next year. Odd decision to play on when he'll likely retire in reserve grade

I'm talking about 2019. Already forgotten about 2018.
