I think one of his biggest selection mistakes was dropping Murchie from the bench to make way for a half. As good as they are with what they do a small forward in Jazz and two workhorse props just didn't give us the impact we needed.In regards to Walsh vs Chanel Harris-Tavita vs Kodi and Brown acknowledging selection mistakes.
Brown made a long term decision on the weekend (Chanel Harris-Tavita and Kodi as our long term halves) and to protect Walsh.
If he’s thinking short term he starts Walsh and one of his future halves miss out.
While Brown may have mucked up short term, it’s only in hindsight and because of the result. Long term he somehow needs to priorities games into Chanel Harris-Tavita and Kodi if they are our future halves and try to involve Walsh without over doing him.
For all the good Walsh does, he is still well below NRL standard on defence and will be prone to injury if over exposed to heavy contact while his conditioning is still developing.
