Use of the interchange bench

Post by hybrid_tiger » Tue 26 Jun, 2012 7:46 am

Abysmal yet again.

Woods off for long period when we were getting belted up the middle.
Bell being benched yet Heighington playing 80 despite being a complete liability.
BMM getting what seemed liked 10 minutes.
Iosefa playing lock (my favourite).

Just ridiculous.

heighno didn't play 80. Masada came on at hooker. Robbie went to the halves and Blake to lock

Thanks for clearing that up Tiger99. Hope the team know what lies ahead of them if they play like that against the Bulldogs on the following Friday.

I saw Farah at dummy half multiple times when Iosefa was on the field.

Didn't see Heighington come off, how long was he off for?

It's just natural for Robbie to jump in there sometimes. Masada came on for Heighno

This is what I saw as well. I don't get playing Robbie at 7. He is a great player but he was looking really good at 9 and then for some reason he was moved to 7. To add to that Benji moved wider and put in his worst performance of the season.

I'm not blaming Sheens for that loss but those decisions were really poor and Sheens should cop some criticism for that.

Its perplexing as to why week in week out we play two utilities on the bench. I've never seen any other side take two utilities into a game. And nine times out of 10 one of them doesnt take the field at all. The bench is an asbolute rabble and has been for quite some time.

It's been like that for years though and probably the main criticism of Sheens. Some of the selections and use of the bench are head scratchers.

Yeah, cant see why we need a hooker on the bench when we know Robbie can play 80. Although Masada goes alrite, good footwork and shows the ball nicely. Cant see why Humble hasnt been played in the halves while Siro is out, better option than Blake IMO. If Sheensy drops Fulton and leaves Heighno in the side when Ellis comes back, IMO would be a bad decision. We miss Fulton in the middle in defense.

IMO a good bench could be:
BMM
Moors
Bell/Cashmere
?

Thats with Ellis and Fults in the second row

When Fulton & Ellis both return, there should be no need for a second hooker.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Cuando llegue el día, y estoy parado a las puertas del cielo, será Dios pidiendo mi perdón...

I stand corrected. I still believe that is way too long.
