He’s fit and healthy, but Cowboys forward Matt Scott is expected to remain the game’s most talented 18th man, after Cowboys coach Paul Green declared that he’d only be used in an emergency.
According to AAP, Green is set to reward the same 17 who’ve won their way to the decider, rather than call up the more accomplished Scott.
“As long as nothing happens injury-wise throughout the week, the same 17 will play on Sunday,” Green said.
The decision from Green is noble, and it’d be cruel to rob one of the younger players of a Grand Final berth that they’ve worked so hard to earn.
However, it’s sure to leave people wondering “what if?” in the event of a narrow Storm victory.
