Agree, Ghost. That's my thinking.No to the extra week off, if he's fit play him. Put it too the test, much rather he ping it again in round 22 or 23 than first 10 minutes of a final.
Plus, having missed so much footy this season, Cotchin might need a little while to get back to full speed.
Will, no doubt, be eased through his first game with plenty of minutes on the bench as required.
