A few questions.

Did we really have just 2 forwards (props / second row) on the bench along with young Amir and Ben Tibbs?
Amir punches his weight in a and d and nowt against Ben but how many go with just 2 out and out forwards for the interchange?
Was everyone else injured or just left out?

Along with the crazy tactic of playing Brandon Moore as bit part second row just to keep him on the pitch. Moore is one of the best hookers in the comp but Amir Bourough is on a different level to him but because of Grix's choice of captain its forcing his hand to try and get him to stay on the pitch. Out of all the back rowers we have at the club Moore is not anywhere near the top 6.

Exactly Greg, to accommodate Amir we have the party piece of moving Brandon to second row when Amir comes on, it hasn't worked because Brandon is and never will be a second row.
Did SG try and repeat it with Ben Tibbs coming on and Ed Barber going to second row at some point?

To go with just 2 forwards + Amir and include a promising youngster in Ben Tibbs who is a back and has only played about 20 minutes in the pre season friendly against the same opposition especially with the quick no scrum restarts seems crazy to me and unprecedented in the modern game.
Who ever goes with just 2 forwards on the bench?
Did Ben even get on the pitch yesterday?
If not why include him in the first place?
Who ever has unused interchanges these days?
I just can’t make sense of any of it.
It really is asking for it and we got it by surrendering a half time 2 score lead and not scoring a single point in 40 minutes against Oldham.

Think coaches can get away with this when things are going well but not when they aren't. I've seen a couple of games this season where Batley appear to have played Ben Kaye as a middle for part of the game ie carrying the ball in from first receiver, which is not his position in any way, shape or form but if you're winning it doesn't get questioned.

It'sa good job that collateral form is pretty worthless in this division as Oldham 4 Whitehaven 36 is an eyecatching score.

That scoreline does not actually surprise me. From what I have seen in all the pre season games Oldham are dead certs for relegation. At the moment my only question is just how close we will be to them.

The Whitehaven win over Oldham sends out very worrying overtones for Fax. If things don’t improve today then SG is starting to look Starmeresque. Our season must start today otherwise we will be in big trouble.

It’s unlike me to be so downbeat but even if we get over the line today based on performance and results the number of problems we have all over the park is as bad as I can recall and have real concerns, so it goes much deeper than just one win.
