Time in Opps half Manly 49 minutes Tigers 31 minutes (big one obviously )

Metres Manly 1396 Tigers 1295

Kick metres 672 Manly Tigers 425

Line breaks Manly 6 Tigers 5

Offloads Manly 7 Tigers 9

Every time we go into their 20 we'd knock the ball on. Add in a few calls against us, and losing the penalty count and it's not inconceivable.

For decent periods of the game, the figures were a fair indication of the contest. The most important numbers from the match and the difference between the teams were the one, six and seven.

Hayne, and the timing of his errors and penalties, obviously did not help things.

We were ripping them apart up the middle for about 20 minutes in the second half, but we just kept dropping the ball.

I thought we were in the game for large chunks and were playing hard with plenty of heart but a combination of things got the better of us. Obviously when virtually every ruling goes against you it doesn't help. I think a couple of their tries could easily have been disallowed on another day.
However, our outside backs reading of the opposition attack especially in our own 20m is horrible (one decoy runner or a cut-out pass and any team scores against us). Every winger we have gets sucked infield and our centres are rubbish in D. We have no respect for possession and made school boy errors continuously - this let them off the hook countless times. We had plenty of chances but never completed whereas a better team would have, so I don't think they were that great.
The couple of times we actually held the ball and ran it in their 20m we scored fairly easily (and once we scored but Hayne must have had a bet on the margin).
Until we can complete sets, hold the ball and mount pressure, improve our 5th tackle options and defend for our lives - we are not finals material.

Every time Manly came to our 20 they did this thing called quick passing and catching.

I don't think Tigers have really practiced this new and exciting technique called catching, but hopefully they will work on it at training this week.
