    Secondly - we have no idea on the Naismith situation, or the contract he was on. I don't think that's a fair comment at all.
    Predictably Bell having no impact whatsoever

    3 disposals 1 tackle

    Not that either was impressive, but who came out on top: Taylor with a meagre 6 possessions in a half of football or Bell with a mediocre 14 for a full game? We probably got a bit more from Bell with his tackling, but I think this is one occasion where the 22nd (and 23rd) player made no real difference in the end.
