But hey as long as it looks pretty , who cares , hey ??

Enough said
:crazy :crazy


Taylor
Grant
Simona.
So what your saying it's ok to come rushing out of the line as a centre and tackle no one Col ??

Are you serious Col ??

How often do you see the other quality centres come running out of the line for a starters and if they do they tackle no one ??

4-5 times a game Col

Like Jamie Lyon does it all the time , doesn't he Col ??

And Simon's best option with the break he made in order were 1/set up a support player in a better position , 2/take the tackle and then get them on the next tackle Long last / put a kick for support player while you are trying to run at full bore and hope another player moving at full bore can around the defenders and get a perfect bounce (which it wasn't ,Rankin was at almost full stretch )

That play along with some dumb Brooks moments cost us the game

No matter how you want it to play out , that's the facts

Yeah consider this - instead of blaming Rankin.

Simona takes a tackle, quick play the ball, and Nofoaluma scores on the other side within two plays.

We had a few blokes there for that ball and the Bulldogs had no one.
Rankin should have caught it plain and simple.

The ball was above his head and he was running full speed CK

Watch it again and there was some pressure

Again it was a low percentage option , we need to stop trying to rely on low percentage lucky tries :brick:

Happy - I'm not trying to be slack but I wonder if you even watch the game. It's like you have an idea in your head and no matter what happens that is what you are going to state.

Rankin bombed a sure try that Simona set-up.

The same could be said about you Steve. It was a low percentage option but it would have paid off had Rankin taken the ball. It wasn't an easy ball to take at full throttle but it was a ball he should be taking playing first grade as a fullback. He did well to put himself in a position to take it, but he stuffed it.

Rankin didn't take the ball agreed , but next time your out in the back yard try and take a ball above your head at full speed with other people in your vicinity

As I said in another thread , of the three option available to Simona that would of been the last one I would have chosen , especially with the amount of tackles left in the set

The best option is to try and position another player in a better position , secondly take the tackle and get a fast play the ball and spread v a broken defensive line and the kick option was the absolute last option you'd take , so much can go wrong , you are trying to place a precise kick at full speed to another player at full speed needing the bounce to sit up perfectly and as it did the bounce wasn't great

But as you once stated your are a better game analyst and player than Sterling , so you'd know that

I thought the ball was chest high and he kind of pushed at it. Anyway, it was a game changer. I reckon it was on. I think he could have positioned jac and given it to him, but happy with his decision. He created, the guys who obviously expected it didn't come up with the goods. Will have to look at it again to see how high it bounced, but won't change my thoughts. Should have scored in y opinion.

Spot on hobbo

That ball was definitely chest high and catchable, just watched it 5 times.

I think everyone is frustrated cause we should of won a game we were unexpected to win, i certainly gave us no hope.

We are definitely taking small steps to being a side that we will win more than lose, once we can purchase 3-4 quality 1st Graders watch out.
We still have a couple of players that aren't 1st Grade standard but you expect that with Salary Cap constraints.

This year is not dead and buried but we are not at the level of the Cowboys, Sharks, Bulldogs etc....

Looking forward to next year already.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Try catching a ball at chest height then at full speed when you've no idea how high it is going to bounce

Some idiots missing the whole bloody point

THE KICK WAS THE WORST OPTION OF THE THREE HE COULD OF CHOSEN

IF THE IDIOT CENTRE TAKES THE SMARTER OTHER OPTIONS WE DON"T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT !!!!!!!!!

And I have a tool in another thread arguing that Simona is a good centre , you have to be bloody kidding

You're initial argument was that the ball was over his head , it WASN'T !

It was a gift of a bounce , pretty much in the bread basket !
