The 1 teams are at a disadvantage,
Your reserve Hooker is actually the 4th choice. The 2 team takes the 2nd and 3rd choice.
It would be the same for all positions. But set piece is so critical. You have the best Hooker who never misses a throw and always hooks the ball in the scrum. And is as good as a 7 around the field.
He gets injured or subbed off and you get not next best. Or second next best. You get 4th.
Set piece and general play is going to drop. That is going to effect the performance of the team.
Same would apply for most positions. The 1 10 is a world beater destined for the Wallabies, the reserve is a fine Schoolboy utility back but not in the same league.
All the reserves must be given a full game. So every sub is critical.

But be careful, if this is correct, as I have argued that the selections lacked logic, and got shot down, then it can't be said now that the bench selections are incorrect.
Remember selections don't matter! Just suck it up.
As sideline pointed out there is no logic, but that doesn't matter, as others were quick to point out.
Looks pretty silly now, doesn't it.
