Only two things I can think of
1 - something happened behind the scenes that we aren’t aware of
2 - that red in Australia cup shattered his confidence and Monty let that heavy burden sit squarely on his shoulders with maybe a few digs in there himself.

last week he got a start out of necessity. Today felt like an olive branch and being hooked at half time says plenty about how it was received.
Actually thought He’d go during jan transfers when everyone wanted Kaltak. Thought they be asking about Hall to as wasn’t getting ago in his preferred position.

He has made bad mistakes
Publicly humiliated
Played everywhere but RCB which can’t be helpful

Being publicly humiliated on the Cummings doco would not have helped either.
There is this and maybe the fact he had kaltak sitting on the bench which was also playing on his mind? Genuine question to be asked really. To me it seemed like this could be what was playing on his mind knowing that he's no longer a first choice which is a pitty in some aspects as he was solid last season for us.

Kaltak has been a blight on our season and cost us more than 12 points. There I said it. Teacher needs to give up on his pet.

I'm also feeling the "our amazing academy story" played a part in starting selection for tonight.

One thing is very clear, we take Niz for granted and we don't have a backup for him.

Kaltak was exactly what we were missing in that first half. Kaltak and Triantis is our best pairing.

First best at fault because he was closest to goal and allowed the shot to happen in a one-on-one situation. Agree the others were culpable as well.
Just had another look and have to agree to disagree on that one. For me Kaltak is the only one close to doing his job there. Very hard to stop that foot thrown out on the opposite side of his body. Still got pretty close too.

Windust in no mans land with nobody to mark and not closing in to back up Storm. Danny beaten at a tight angle. Storm beaten to allow the pass. A terrible team goal to concede. Didnt change the result of course but still.

Aside from the second goal and letting their player waltz across him. Best pairing for me at this point in time is Triantis and Farrell.
I watched Farrell play CB and he was very nervous and relied heavily on Kaltak to organise him... he is an outside back.... the big question for me is who of our left backs can play right back the better... I would suggest McGarry as he can still pass in from the right using his left foot...

Basic defending principle mate. Get goal side of your attacker.
