learnings from 9s so far(early days)

Post by clontarfkid » Sun 16 Feb, 2014 7:59 am

1)Tedesco has surprising pace-if someone can put him in space,this mite be his year.
2)Richards provides stability , size & vesrasaitility in the backs.
3)Tapou,Patterson & Gavet are all big & mobile,exactly what we need ,& mite finally restore some respect to the pack thats been missing since Ellis departed
4)Playmakers remain in very short supply-unsure about Austin in this role,Moses promising but needs another 8-10kg..so Brooks really needs to deliver.
5)Error rate(dropped balls /missed tackles)still needs significant focus
Overall,encouraging

Its pretty obvious we will struggle to win anything with Marika in the team.

He absolutely refuses to trust his inside man and will not stop the person he is supposed to mark.

It looks as tho he feels he has the pace to run anyone down, which he probably does in most cases. However not when you're defending close to the line.

Hope he can work on his defence in Reggie's as he is nothing but a weapon in attack.

Im confident that Marika will be less exposed in the 13 man game. I haven't seen too many teams hold out defending on their line this weekend.

Our biggest issue is errors and penalties which puts pressure on our defensive line. Get rid of the errors and penalties and our defence will improve overnight.

Austin and Marika very disappointing.
Blair still enjoying his holiday at Wests Tigers.
Farah as annoying as ever with those kicks of his.
Potter doesn't know much about nines.
Our youngsters coming through are not as good as Wests Tigers make out.

This is what concerns me most. I am hoping that Potter was using the 9s as pure trials and didn't attempt to win it. If not, it suggests further strong doubts about his tactical nous.

Payten..No way his a very smart coach. Playing a fullback in nines lol nah it had all the look of Potter coaching.

Does anyone know if Austin actually completed a tackle this w/e..?Know it was a trial ,but his technique is a shocker.
He may have played himself out of 1st grade for season opener.
..and if potter doesnt fix the ridiculous error rate(yep,it was just a trial)in both attack & defence,he'll play himself out of 1st grade ...!

It seems the penalties are all due to our defensive deficiencies....I'd say get the defense right and theres no need to push the envelope in the tackle/ruck...we just cannot compete here.
We get our D right this in turn means less penaltys, more ball, less fatigue and less errors in possesion - hopefully

You could be right on this one.

Payten ran the 9's tournament for us.

Potter was there as a spectator to see a few guys and how they shape up

Well that will deflate Irvines bubble, IMO we took the wrong squad, Farah should not of played nor Woods. Unfortunately probably our best 9's player Fulton was injured.

Biggest learning from the 9's for us is that our discipline issues from last year around the ruck have not been addressed...this was also evident at last weeks trial

Poor form if so. We should have taken this competition seriously. We are a club struggling with money and members both of which would have been helped by doing well in this. Bet that was part of the reason we were favourites at some point.
We better be smashing it in the actual season.

No wonder they played like an U20's team.
