Kids don't simply develop because the number next to their games played count goes up.That’s fine
We are already getting thumped - losing by 50 vs say 80 could care less
Just take in the losses
Pump the games into the kids
And hell if it makes you feel better if we go winless we’ll get a PP for sure which will also fast track the rebuild
But at least come years end we hopefully have 20 more games into Xerri, Phillips, Lazzaro, Powell, LDU etc
Instead of ******* Tom Campbell and Shaun Atley as an example
There's a difference in terms of development between playing a competitive game where you take it up to a better team versus getting absolutely spanked and losing possession counts by nearing triple figures.
If the difference between losing by an 5 extra goals and every player getting a handful less possessions is that we play one or two more senior bodies then so be it. You can't just play every kid on the list, be a bottomless pit of uncompetitive drivel, and expect players to actual develop well.
