From my exposure to the three trials I have seen (NRL, NYC & NSW Cup) Potter has focused very much on structure and numbers in tackles. Exactly the opposite of what you want in a 9's format in many ways and the team played in a fashion reflective of that.

Great fluctuations every game and within games and zero attention to detail.

If anything it makes me happy to see the difference in trial form to the 9's. One bred success and the other bred errors and losses. Hopefully set in the minds of our guys the benefits of structure over ad lib
I just hope if that's the case we cut down on the number of offloads conceded.

Not sure I get that reference. Are saying I was a Benji supporter or Benji basher? I don't recall being either.
It wasn't aimed at you at all, princess.

It was a simple jibe at where and why Farah would chip kick - ala Benji

The 1 on 1 hapless arm grabbing attempts were what worried me...

Look at Ayshford's run on one of the Sharks tries yesterday, he just ran straight and 3 Tigers arm grabbed and fell off him, he didn't step, he didn't fend, he didn't even run hard, he just strolled through 3 seperate 1 on 1 attempts and not one of them got close to stopping him... It was embarressing.
