Because of a complete lack of awareness.
He came back after a year out with practically no match conditioning, which would no doubt have seriously affected his feel for the game. To expect him to be switched on in the seniors in his return game defied common sense with the lack of prep he had. It was a desperate decision from a coach equally desperate for a win.
It should not have happened.
Yep exactly we have been panicked time and again by absurd and ill advised selections over and over again.
There is NO system to our selections at all.
Max should not play Sunday with Ankle issues
Jones should not play Sunday with Calf issues
Lever should be put into cotton wool maybe for the rest of the year.
I thought Baker was OK and being our future should get an extended run in the ones
In spite of all the negative opinions of JKH he has been our best player in the twos for two weeks, surely you must reward form?
Both Wagners are not up to standard and it is laughable Oscar even gets named.
I would just like to know the inner workings of selection because to an outsider it appears all to be the stuff of Ouija boards and random guesswork!
I've given up trying to understand selection, generally it defies all logic, its almost as if they are trying to do everything possible to ensure we don't win games of football. I'd half expect Max to be out this week and Preuss to also not get a game just because....that's the sort of thing we would do
