I think this needs to be examined…
We have started decently first 20 in the vast majority of games, but dropped off noticeably whenever the starting props leave the field. We have completely stopped running after big leads on several occasions and not shown any ability to wrestle the momentum back.
His bench use has been absolutely terrible for a long while now. Regardless of the context or momentum or who is on the bench…it is the exact same rotations.
16th man utility gets a stint regardless of whether they are needed or have the skills for the position.
17th man sits there and watches most of the game.
I am in the Madge camp, but it seems a rather clear failing and one he never gets asked to explain.
