I’m a massive fan of running a starting 7 for the whole game and I think we saw the benefits of the Lightning doing just that today. In my opinion, rolling subs have given coaches an unnecessary urge to throw the bibs in the air. It’s somewhat understandable because players are playing 2 games a week but they are also recovering exceptionally well (take a look at some of the team’s Instagram to see) and they’re hardly training. It’s not a significant enough increase from their usual schedule to make 20 changes a game.
I hope the rest of the coaches take a leaf out of Kylee Byrne’s book.
