So you're okay with blooding young players in sudden death games against the best teams in the league, but not in the early part of the season against strugglers?Then injuries happen and we have to deal with it. If that means debuting players, that means debuting players.
The idea is to use games now that are likely wins with lower pressure, in order to give us a better chance at winning at the business end of the year, when we need all the resources we can get at our disposal. Short-term thinking can bite us in the arse at the least opportune time.Selection policy has to be about winning each week this year and given our position.
