Last Tackle Options

I noticed last night in particular with the new 20m restart rules the last tackle option has become vital.
It'll be critical today against the big Warriors pack, who if given 7 tackles will roll right up the paddock.
I'm wondering if we're better off ditching the bombs. Anasta put 3 or 4 too deep last week, that we were no chance contesting. IMO we'll be in a better position if we either run it on the last or kick sideline to sideline, pinning them inside the 20 without conceding a restart.
Thoughts?

Tomkins hasn't looked very good under the high ball from what i've seen. I say keep putting it up high and let him make the mistake. Watching the Holden Cup now and the wind is swirling around alot, looks like a fullbacks nightmare out there.
