But if we're about youth, I find it counter-productive to drop a youth after a decent game?I
I have been surprised by selection this week. I would never have imagined all three of Stephens, Warner and Stoddart being selected. If we were desperate to win the game, it probably would have been Fox, Mcinerney and Taylor. There seems to be a shift in selection towards being more youth focused.
I am guessing what will happen is older fringe players like Fox, Taylor, Ronke, Melican and Thurlow get rotated in to replace players like CoR, Clarke and Gray. But there might be 1-3 spots to rotate in some of the younger players they want to have a look at.
Looking at our list there is still quite a few reserve players we probably want to have a look at, even it is just one senior game. Maibaum, Ling, Bell, Foot, Wicks, Amartey, Knoll and Reynolds. And then O'Connor, Gould, Rowles and Elijah Taylor as first year players.
