Do you mean during the game? More benefit than moving Graham there, or putting Nikora in the centres and re-shuffling the entire backline to get Tracey in the halves.If Hynes goes down and Moylan has to replace him, based on last weeks performance alongside Trindall how much of a benefit will it actually be to us?
There are zero people advocating for Matt Moylan as a starter, but he surely has to be the best option as a backup half, and the best option to cover an in-game injury to a half.
Saying something over and over doesn't make it true.Doesn't matter cause we know by now Fitz doesn't know how to rotate around the minutes of a 4 forward bench anyway.
He will give a bloke like Hunt 10 mins while someone like Rudolf is left out there as long as possible sucking in the big ones because reasons....
The Sharks have had played one game this year where their best five forwards were all healthy, and in that game the rotation was pretty close to exactly how people want it to be - and much of last year up until Rudolf got injured it was the same. It's just that in the other games where he has one/some of his best guys missing he gives bigger minutes to his other best forwards... and unlike most fans, Fitz knows who his best forwards are
Maybe - but maybe if he'd left Talakai in against Manly and they gave up one less try down that edge and win that one too. Coulda shoulda woulda.It was right to pick Moylan last season, he found his best form since 2018 alongside Hynes and it was working for the most part in attack for us.
A rookie might come in and carve up for a game or 2 but performing over an entire NRL season is a different thing and this is where coaches place alot more faith with experienced incumbent players even when they have a form dip
If his defense hadn't become so bad Moylan might have remained a serviceable player for us
If Fitz pulled the trigger on that diabolical left edge earlier we might have won a couple more of those close games and be in a better position come finals time.
