But he was doing defensive work when Mills was playing, 88. I think you're mistaking how we adapt per team vs your perception of how Hewett is used when Mills is out.
That's what I mean, he will be doing more of the defensive stuff so that Mills assumes more of the ball-winning responsibilities. Last few weeks Hewett's gone for the ball a lot more. This week he'll have his eye on his opponent first and foremost as he did before Mills went out. Will still find the footy, but it's not the same.

Sensible changes.

Can't imagine Rowbottom has declined so much without injury being at least part of the cause. I wonder if having not been rested he is battling through an injury that requires surgery and an end to the season to fix so they are trying to keep his fitness up incase of injuries.

What's going on with Warner? You'd think he's done his knee or something. This feels too long for a "stress reaction", whatever that means.

Playing reserves this weekend probably.

Wouldnt be surprised if it has taken longer for him to get fit as we arent at home and seem to have about 5 staff members left in Queensland.
Just waiting to see horse having to give players a massage on the sideline during the game.
