Second half interchange

Can anyone explaIn to me why we made 2 interchanges within about the first 5 mins of the second half, Liddle on for Taylor then McQueen on for Rochow.

Just didn’t make sense to me and I dont understand the tactic behind it.

I found it odd when they mentioned Liddle on so early after the break… Didn’t realise there were two so soon.
Does seem odd though I guess you have to start the 2nd half with who you finished the first with.
Probably done with a view to the back end of the game?
I dunno

Was really hard to understand those decisions, especially as the perpetually involved Taylor was pretty well buggered leading up to half time, which seemed the perfect period to inject Liddle

Is that how it works Ink they have to start second half with same side that finished first??

Did Rochow make it back on the field??

I actually felt sorry for the boys. Thought that team selection was poor but the use of the interchange was utter crap.
Yes I know that we can only work with what we’ve got, but some of Ivan’s decisions are frustrating. Elijah Taylor is not a hooker. Liddle should never have come on when he did. And no offence McQueen was a waste of a spot, would’ve preferred him over Rochow in the team and to see Aloiai be brought back in.
It seemed like all our weaknesses were on full display last night.

Liddle was planned imo.

Rochow was hooked…

They were down an interchange as the human HIA was getting splinters !

Surprised Cleary hooked him before hobbo got a chance.

Everytime I see Rochows bald head I get horrific flashbacks of Galloway :bash

Sometimes coaches make interchanges at half time. We got another 5 mins out of 2 players then subbed them. No biggie. The issue is Liddle needed to be on after 20-25 mins when it was clear ET was having a shocker…

Too bad liddle does not have 80 in him.

Sue return from HIA replacing Packer at half time.

43’ Liddle came in for Taylor
46’ McQueen came on for Rochow

Penrith made two changes in the 49’

It made no sense to me on the night and still doesn’t.

Rochow was hooked so fair enough. Liddle should have come on earlier and I mentioned in the game thread his usage has made no sense.

V eels played about 25
Missed warriors game
V cowboys played about 60
V panthers played 37

Either he is fit or he isn’t - if not get him out of the side.

I would say that Ivan knew we had to inject some life into our attack before it was to late
We couldn’t let the Panthers score again after halftime without throwing everything we had at them
Liddle had more time on the field to try and create something but it didn’t work
Our scrambling defence in the second half was good

Anyone here think it might be good to go with Mcillrick and Liddke off the bench?
He’s a very good dummy half and now we have a decent pack and Brooks is playing good footy we might just need the quick service. Apart from the poor passes there are slow passes high passes all stifling our attack.
It really might be that simple.
