I could be wrong but did Jack play? I don't recall him getting a run at all.
There are two kinds of people in the world - those that live in Balmain and those that wished they did.

He's down for one tackle on NRL Stats so he must have been on for the last minute or two lol.

Imagine the uproar re: this had we lost.... Would love to hear his reasoning for it, seems a crazy move seeing how we seemed to hit an invisible brick wall at 41 minutes

Heh, sorry to beat this drum again... but we've recruited depth, right? But at the same time we can only find 16 players we want to use...

Little bit strange considering we were in quick sand the second half.

I think for all teams you are going to see the 4th interchange player not playing huge minutes where you don't have an injury no matter who it is given the limited interchange. When you bring your first 3 interchange players on and off within a game thats 6 interchanges, only leaving you 2. Teams want to save one for any late injury (imagine the uproar if we had to play with 12 for the last 5 mins and lost). That means that Buchannan would have been coming on for Woods (Captain), Grant or Sue who were both having huge games through the middle but wouldn't have been coming back on so I'd say thats why you didn't see more of him because they would have been left on the bench once he came on

There was plenty of uproar between my ears and that is why I brought it up in Sabre's Fitness thread. I don't know the number of changes already used at the time, but as their possession run continued, it seemed increasingly odd not to get a steady player with fresh legs on the field.

For mine we were very lucky that the Warriors lost their ball handling ability late in the game, else a repeat of the dogs and raiders comebacks of last year was on the way.

I dont mind it. If JT feels the other 16 guys are better options to get the job done, therefore not worth wastimg an interchange or 2, then so be it.

Bottom line is if someone like Sue has had a decent rest, you would put him back on instead of wasting an interchange on a lesser player.

Only issue i have is that it was a front rower just sitting there. If the 4th benchy is gonna just be for cover then make is a versatile player who can cover many positions.

King sirro thats the way I see it. With limited interchanges, Taylor may prefer a 16 player rotation. As this is only new, he may change his plans.

On the versatility point I agree. However, perhaps Taylor's belief was that he had sufficient versatility throughout the other 16.
