So I've got 3 for the Dragons on one of my doubles who is future Tiger Taane Milne. But he's been dropped to the bench. There doesn't seem to be 14-17 on any tickets. Am I stuck with Milne, do I get his direct replacement (Mann) or his starting replacement (Widdop i guess)?

9 usually covers bench players I think.
Would have needed either Mann or Milne. Not sure how it works when a player gets dropped to the bench.

Actually they paid on number 3 for Widdop because he was his replacement. But I had JLJ for us so yeah I was screwed...

Things might have moved on or they may be the same but these were the historic rules...

Whoever replaced your player took over that number. Easy in the pre interchange days, a nightmare now...

If a team didn't score a try, the hooker or goal kicker were used.
