Get it slightly wrong and it goes into a player's legs, and with everyone rushing to where the ball was supposed to be, a runaway try can easily occur. Then you have Carney's kick in the first half which took a deflection off one of our players, straight into the arms of another shark to score an easy try. Bounce of the ball...
I blame him for both..his attacking kick was not good, he was running sideways and why is he kicking anyhow..what is the half back in the team for ?
The one close to our line was Farah again putting his foot out...it was covered.
Bennett always coached not to play at the grubber kick close to your line for that very reason we saw on Friday.
Farah has one of the best short kicking games in the competition, that's why he was kicking. He didn't play at the ball on our line either. Carney kicked it into him.

To be fair Thompson was in dummy half and gave a pretty floaty/bad pass but on the other hand farah ran a bad line down short side.

He should've just kicked from dummy half as he usually does or give to siro or benji as we were 5m out all we had to do was give the ball to nofo haha

Farah makes that play on a fairly regular basis. It requires pin-point aim to go between legs and often it comes off but this time it didn't. We probably need for that play to be called rather than off the cuff so he can have some cover for a deflection but it looks like he tends to play it when he sees it so it is always going to be somewhat of a lottery.

Guess it boils down to how much we need points or how safe the set should be played out. We needed points at the time.
