Was Rance in good form before his injury?If he's declared right to play, he plays.
Who knows what the future holds? He could wait til next year & do it again in round 1.
I seem to recall he was struggling a bit - and as much as I think the guy is a LEGEND - I wonder why we would rush him into the team if we have made finals on the back of the existing structure (and new blood in Chol, Stack, Bolton, Baker etc).
Rance is a GREAT player but he has had slow starts in recent years and there's nothing to suggest he can immediately get up to fitness and form by flicking a switch.
If we are running well into finals - I just can't see why they would risk it (IMHO)
