    I'm not sure what the thinking is exactly, but having just watched the game again I can only say:

    Ryder nearly won us the game in the last quarter - I think he was the key player on the ground in the 4th. So the only reason he was spared as much time in the ruck before that would be because,

    A: They are trying to get Ryder more experience as a key forward/thought Carlisle would actually do something useful.
    B: They were trying to get Bellchambers to wear Jolly down so Ryder could come over the top of him in the last.
    C: They don't trust Bellchambers up forward/didn't think Bellchambers would get beaten as badly as he did.

    Given that, Hille is a better match for the team, no matter what the reason was.

    Don't see the point in sacrificing Ryder's game to fit in TBell. Yes, T-Bell has to play because of Hille's injury - But it needs to be a 50/50 split - Or the team loses too much.
