Is attack more important or is defence more important ??

AS JT said we have tried with the Benjiball since 2005 and basically have nothing to show for it

Lets genuinely try and set up a great defence that we can always fall back on , when we are having a bad day in attack

Good defence will always keep you in the game

Look at last night for example , we didn't score a point , but even in the 76 minute we were still in the game

That's the huge difference

Everything this assistant coach said is true , but getting our defence right is our first and biggest priority
But you still need to score points to win a game

Exactly. Defence and attack are two aspects of the game. Strong defence is a must, no doubt. Explosive / expansive attack is also needed. The teams that do this well are currently in the top 4.

Re 2005, we may have played Benjiball but our defence was rock solid at the back end of the season. Just look at the for and against throughout the season, the again look at the for and against in finals series. The numbers speak for themself.

Tigers 50 - 6 Cowboys
Tigers 34 - 6 Broncos
Tigers 20 - 12 Dragons
Tigers 30 - 16 Cowboys

We won those games off the back of our defence

The Broncos game they hammered us for at least 25 minutes and we broke them , off the back of some luck yes but it was our defence

But the problem was the game changed and we didn't until some brief periods while we made the semis

Tiger Torch wrote:We are a team of imposters coached by an imposter coach. The cold hard reality is that only Teddy & Woods would make the starting sides of the leagues top 4. Tapau who's form is on the slide and has never impressed with his stamina, may get a interchange spot - he is only good for 15 minute bursts. Farah; Simona (if fit); Noffa (if fit) may make the top 25.Potential is illusory as it doesn't register on the scoreboard. Taylor has no ideas so takes the safe approach by not trying anything in an attempt to eliminate mistakes - he only succeeds in making us the most boring one dimensional side in the league. How easy would it be to formulate a game plan to combat the Tigers, I mean we simply don't ask any questions of the oppositions defence. We simply don't have the cattle at present to compete at a consistent level; the salary cap is a farce and sadly we are a spent force for 2015. If there are any fans remaining 2016 will see us sneak into the 8 but with this imposter coach we will be cannon fodder for the top teams that can 'create' while we stick to our 'robotic' predictable structures.
mate u been so positive in previous threads.


is it that bad or I fuming from the loss.

Got anymore news for us?
