Teddy's Try Savers

Post by VanillaThunder » Thu 22 Aug, 2013 4:49 pm

Interesting reading some stats about Teddy on the Tigers website re: our best performed youngsters for the year, he sits equal fifth in the league for try saves. Inglis has 21, Slater and Locke 20, Hoffman 16, with Teddy alongside Barba, Gordon and Minichiello on 15. Admittedly he's probably had a lot more to do than those blokes with our shoddy defence, but it shows just how effective he's been this year as a last line. He's had a great season so far, and I can't wait to see him injury-free. He's got my vote for sure..

Strange statistic, it could get difficult to determine what qualifies as a try saver.

Isn't that equal 4th? Only Inglis, Slater and Hoffman are ahead.

What stood out for me the most is straight after the Roosters dropped the ball, he could have just watched it and packed a scrum, but instead he decided to pick the ball up and run it back hard. He managed to draw a penalty.

These are the one-percenters which make a great player.
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

With our defence Teddy gets lots of practice

He doesn't miss many though

looks like his confidence has picked up big time last couple of weeks. Off season will do him wonders. He will put his knee injury ( mental) behind him for good. I hope he can fulfill his potential . We could build a deadly spine.

That was one of the greatest try saves I'd ever seen. Just to have the thought to knock it out like that at the last second is actually phenomenal.

Was initially critical myself but I'm so very glad I was wrong. He's a fantastic player, very proud and glad to have him on our team

As the old saying goes, every try saved is as good as a try scored!

Teddy has taken his game to a new level over the past few weeks. That's the best try-saver I've seen and his support play just keeps getting better! He did bomb a try with that dodgey/early pass to brooks in the first half but he's got my vote for fb.

Yep his baggers should be eating some humble pie.

He played well today except for the terrible pass to Brooks when he made he break.
