no one is debating whether Trindall should get 10 minutes or dropped ? we would like to see the kid play his normal position, coach obviously loves what he sees of trindall since he has refused to drop him.I do agree, but that 10 minutes is also far from the only time the coach sees Trindall all week.
The coach himself has access to much more information about how Trindall is tracking, what he needs to work on, what he can and can't do when playing the 7 role (admittedly mostly in a training environment).
I used to say I wasn't sure if 80 in Cup or 10 in NRL was better for him longer term, I've swung hard towards the 80 in Cup now myself, however seems like Fitz either feels it is the 10 in NRL that is better. Or at least feels Trindall on the bench is better for the NRL team (which may then change when Tracey returns).
Assuming Fitz knows better than us the question mark is perhaps more like is Fitz doing what is best for Trindall or the NRL team?
I also doubt Fitz is saying get on and pull a miracle out, you'd think he is there firstly as cover and then as a way to inject some energy and passing late in the game. Perhaps to his own detriment he does seem to be trying to chase the miracles.
Trindalls fragile ego (assigned to him by commenters more than anything he has done himself) may be damaged by reverting back to Cup.
I don't know him well enough to judge that however I do think if told to go he should go no questions asked and accept it. Has been suggested previously he should have quit our team when Townsend was being selected ahead of him. Well Townsend is halfback of the side 3rd on the ladder right now and we are debating if Trindall should get 10 minutes or dropped so maybe there was a reason Chad used to get a jersey over him...
His current role doesn’t really make sense even from a re-signing point of view, how do you even justify re-signing Trindall ? It’s putting us in a corner to either pay up for Moylan or nothing
