Who said he was sub par? He's the obvious replacement for long and he had a goal, tackles and decent possession count last weekend. A few don't like him but he kicked a bag in the VFL practice matches and seems to be more like for like than Rice.

Young taken the place of Long who hasn’t been good enough.
Steele to Beams/ Treloar, (if Beams injured)
Sinclair to Sidebottom, (when on wing)/ Pendlebury,(when roving)
Sinclair to rove and give Acres a run on the wing at stages.
I like Young coming in...Just to cause some genuine excitement and madness for the filth to deal with this week
Together with Gresh and Predator!
Whilst it's true the backs are the one's standing out in the two's.....At senior level our backline has been a standout success
This season. So why tinker! It's up fwd where we have underperformed...We just need a little more point of difference up there
And combined with his pressure and the Xfactor adds to our unpredictability!
Not to mention just to see Plugger's reaction when he gets wind of it!
