Agree H,I know waves has always had strong depth and it’s no different this year but with all these injuries is it getting to the point where people who shouldn’t be playing 1st are getting the opportunity? Almost becoming dangerous having these boys play 1st XV
Today the 16as had 7 out, 2 through injury 5 playing the top grades, so the 16as got thumped which under normal circumstances would not happen.
Our 1sts had it's hooker playing prop, and it's flanker playing hooker with1 genuine 1s prop, the other is injured, the 2 props in the 2nds were also both out.
You are spot on re the dangers of playing boys up who aren't suitable for the 1s, that's why the team had to move some boys around into different positions, as they are 1s players, but it is just not the same.
Hopefully next week, the Waves will get a few 1sts back which will help all teams.
Today they lost by 1 penalty goal with 10 mins to go (right in front I might add!).
Bring on the next few weeks!
