I don't buy that either. I saw Manchester a few times this season and they played 3 lines. At the start of the season I would be inclined to agree but Chong was injured and they basically played 2 lines + Ciaran Long and Campbell the short time he was there, you can easily roll 2 C's with 3 lines of wingers. But for the 2nd half of the season they had the McKenzie's and certainly did play all 3 lines of forwards. As for the D the numbers speak for themselves, they had 6 Dmen with the lowest scoring one getting 10 points.
Manchester also did not keep kids on the bench for the whole season, they dressed some of the Trafford guys a couple of times but that was it.
