Staines disproves that pretty well. In multiple games there's been a noticeable drop off when the bench is on. Either they need to be better or someone else has to come in. If size is an issue Eisenhuth, blooding rookies like soneone mentioned Turuva and Jenkins.

What if Kiks gets a HIA though?

That is the issue you need to cover as many positions as you can.

Martin can play 80 if needed and put Sorensen on an edge and give Leniu more minutes. I'd be winding up his minutes between origin and finals anyway. Also keep Salmon for that and drop Kenny. There's a lot of options. If Kenny is the api replacement he should be getting more game time at hooker anyway but it looks like Luke will be the guy instead.

Some games aren't suited to Spencer playing long minutes though.

We have a dream run with injury that won't last there will be plenty of chances to play these guys in their actual position

Interesting in the Fox TV (ie Blocker Roach) commentary and Footy Show today on Ch 9 its all about the Rooster's hardly any comments about Panthers. Sydney TV and Press??
It's been that way all season, especially with any Fox programming. The ignorance from that lot is exceedingly palpable.

Also give Ivan a rest too and hand Ciraldo the clipboard for the Tigers match ;)
Ivan will coach the W/T for a week, Ciraldo the Panthers, and hire a saxophonist for the Benny Hill music.

(BTW Rothfield, don't mention me as a reliable source)
