As we're discussing subs/finishers etc:
Is bringing on half a new team with 20-30mins to go really good for the game?
Doesn't it favour the bigger counties too much?
Does it mean more injuries when a fresh body hits a tiring one?
Does it promote physical bulk over aerobic fitness?

How about a system more like Wendyball, where you can have big bench but you can only make 3 (or 4, or 5) substitutions, either tactical or for injury.
I do agree, but in a dull-contact game, you have to allow for injuries too.
How about 8 man benches, but only 5 substitutions. Any injury replacements have to sit out the following week.
