The reason they keep cards close to their chest is very much because it makes it difficult to know who will play for the opposition.

Therefore our oppo have to come up with several ways to play us depending on which players and game plan we try to put into practice. It also means the opposing starting player and videographer have to look at several Falcons players and their strengths and weaknesses rather than using the very short turnaround time to analyse just one.

It makes no difference to us as fans whether someone is fit or out for weeks. You would watch the team or not anyway. It is only a need for curiosity to be satisfied and a frustration in this 24 hour news and social media information cycle that we can't have all the answers all the time.

In a way it's actually quite nice to know you don't always get the answers however much you stomp your toddler feet....
