Speaking of re-asking questions.
How do people think coaches will handle not having match fit reserve graders to call on? Will we see more rotation then usual to make sure that everyone in their squad is getting game time.
If teams use the same 17 every week, could hurt them if they get a couple of injuries in the lead up to finals.
It’s a tricky one, I don’t know how you balance winning games versus keeping players match ready for emergencies. I can’t see teams resting spine players but I also can’t see them wanted to throw guys in after 15 weeks of training only.
Maybe we see more rotation of benches, including more frequent use of utility and outside backs at 14-17, just to get some game time for everyone without risking too much?
I also read something where either the Dragons or Sharks coach was suggesting the two play 9s games against each other for squad players not in the top 19 or so each week. If possible.
Along those lines, maybe teams could pair up for the occasional competitive opposed training session or informal trial match as restrictions ease further.
EDIT: I’m assuming restrictions wont ease we fast enough to get lower grades, obviously that would solve the problems
