If you were to say it was the wrong decision to bring in Johnson I’d agree, but it wasn’t for no reason. He was providing the form the coaching staff wanted for the role he played.
He really wasn't. It was a lick and a prayer selection.

Surely the most unnecessary and bizarre rule change of the last few years was the move from naming 25 to 26 man squads. Why?
Yeah, ridiculous. So they can just name one more bloke that’s not gonna play for the sake of doing it.

I love when they name a new bloke too and it says something like IN: LP7 (Debut)... when everyone including the bloke who’s supposedly debuting know full well they ain’t playing. It’s such a pointless exercise.

Bassett hinting Motlop will stay in. Trained really well and last week was pushed back out of position and they need his goal kicking nouse. Said Motlop has not yet lived up to expectations since joining Port but BAss has faith he will.
Said Marshall would be helped by learning out of the spotlight. For awhile Might be dropped .

Marshall out, Frampton potentially in.

So what's the point? Replace one triple-teamed tall forward with another, who will struggle to perform any better. How does this help our structure?
