Also despite suffering from a premiership hangover (i'm pretty sure we'd all love to have one of them, after our recent history) I still believe you have to take what the dogs did last year, and trust that on any given day, no matter who is picked for whatever reason, as long as they go out there with the right mindset, anything is possible.
Hepp may need a rest, he may just be struggling for form, who knows. but if he needed a rest, ditto anyone else then the coaches should trust that they can pick player whoever and they can step in, do a job and the ship keeps sailing on course.
So many seem to think that resting one player a week is going to sink the ship.
If they can't win without hepp for one week, as an example, they prolly weren't going to win with him in the side anyway.
Again we lost with supposedly our best 22 to brissy, and we just pantsed the saints without our best 22.
There is no one magic rule that covers all scenerios.
