Absolutely. We all have our own views on which of the culled we would have liked retained, but at this point in time, none of them makes us better long term. For example, the sugar rush of Pittard and Daw playing these games would have resulted in slightly lower losing margins and not much else.Correct. My point was more in response to this narrative that we are "playing too many kids". They are not the problem & this belief that we'd be better off if we didn't cull 12 players last year is just wrong IMO.
Our 22 will become more balanced when/if our injury list sorts itself out & we are able to put better senior players around the kids (Corr, Tarrant, Anderson etc.).
