Injuries early in the season can be a bit of a blessing in a way. Players come back mid season fresh and ready for the finals. We have enough depth to carry this. As long as we are cherry ripe come end of season that’s all that matters
Mayne and WHE are total opposites in role, style and skillsets. Mayne is a lowly skilled tackling machine. Hoskin Elliot is a highly skilled player who once tried to tackle his shadow but got scared of it and pulled out.
I agree we can cover him and Maynes on the list to do that, but they are not similar players.
