Imagine if we actually used all our bench ?!
You mean have 17 on the field instead of 16? I’m pretty sure you can only have 13 on at the same time, so using three or four benchies doesn’t seem to make much difference. Did you know Penrith lost the 2020 grand final against only 16 men?

You have to stop starting at the conclusion and then cherry picking data to support it. It’s a very oversimplistic way of looking at things.
It took me years of observation to realise there are stronger clubs. Missing the finals in 2003 and 2004 was the start of the process, but I was only convinced in about 2016-2018.

There are many different factors that go into on field success. It’s a cop out to say our lack of finals success is due to other clubs being stronger. A lot of those struggles were because of poor decisions by management.

Poor management seems to be part of our DNA. You can't divorce it from any other constants around the club.
