This could be one of those ones where an injury is a blessing in disguise, in terms of testing out fans' theories. Here, if Nofo is truly a nuffie in defence, then we shouldn't be found out down his RHS so much next few weeks.

I recall a similar thing 2014 when Braith was starting 5/8th and we all wanted Blake Austin to be given a run. Didn't happen until Anasta got injured.
This is interesting.

I’ll be honest - I often throw things at the TV and scream obscenities at Noffa when we leak points down the right side.

Then I read comments on here about inside players jamming in and leaving the edges exposed and I’m not so sure.....

Now we might be able to settle this bet

Right edge exposed for the Edrick Lee TRY..oh well maybe they can fix it next week or Cotric for a triple double...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

At least Rapana won't be lining up on the other side...

And on a sidenote, apparently Benji is out for 6 weeks.

It was rather Nofo-like, overhead pass and all.

Personally I think MCK is half the issue there. Put no pressure on Moylan at all, too much plodding.

Whos fault was this try.

There was something that made thompson paranoid and pulled him in the line.

There was comment about obstruction too as reynolds was denied a chance to tackle moylan giving moylan space for the pass

Thoughts??

Well I gave my opinion - MCK. When they wrap the FB you are always 1 short unless your own FB is in the line. Your options are to compress, come up hard or slide. Tigers on this play were compressed: Thommo was equal spacing from all the other defenders.

But Moylan had an age to pick his runner; he even pumped the pass before he threw it. Inside men needed to apply more pressure, not give Sharkies 5 mins to pick out the giraffe on their wing.
