I get a feeling that his lack of game time in the last quarter, especially late in the match was more to do with his lack of spread from the contest with concerns that if he didn't get his hands on the ball first or a teammate and instead of was the Hawks who got first hands on the ball, that we may not have got enough defensive pressure from himDisagree. Either name him in the starting 22 or play him in the 2s where he can get some decent match fitness.
The fact that he was benched for half of the last quarter is damning when we were down a rotation. Either he was injured or his fitness clearly is an issue.
He's not known for his chasing or defensive pressure, so maybe a preference shown to those who could lockdown on the opposition if/when required
