Just a thought I had whilst listening to coverage of the weekend's game... The commentators (SEN) highlighted a few times the discrepancy in the use of interchange rotations. I think we passed the 80 mark before half time, or were on track. Next season, this will be our total allocation for an entire match :eek:

Just wondering if this could hurt us? While I know the cap will apply to ALL teams, does our game plan inherently rely on heavy interchange rotations, meaning we will find it harder to adjust than other sides, who do not rotate so heavily currently?

Discuss!

Taking a line thru the Dusty experience was that he didn't rotate enough in the first two games and therefore cooked too early. Rotated more often on Sunday and ran out the game.
Maybe that was a general thing that meant we stopped as a team, esp against Carlton. So we upped the number, especially in the first half.

Interesting one this. Luckily we have more players who can be damaging if we rotate via FF. Our quick ball movement will be slowed I think.
