As bad as our goal kicking is supposed to be, i haven't heard any complaints about it costing us a match yet.

Not complaining but ...

It cost us in round 6 v the knights
We lost 18-16
2/3

It cost us in round 7 v the Storm
We lost 19-18
1/3

Goal kicking is pretty poor this year especially at this level .
But we've always been blessed over the previous years with Hodgo , Benji & Richards .

I think we've been improving in this area.

Rankin kicked against Dragons and wasn't great. Not sure why he kicked that week instead of Moses. Moses took it back vs the Eels and looked much better apart from that penalty goal miss.

One week of kicking a grand 71% and you are satisfied?

No you're right. He should be beaten and made to apologise personally to all members.

5 out of 7 given the kicks was perfectly acceptable particularly given the improvement in his kicking of late. But sure keep complaining if you're not satisfied by all means.

While theres been some improvement, you could not call Moses a front line goal kicker by any stretch of the imagination

Wasn't complaining. Just asking a question.
And by the way he missed a sitter...

And he kicked a field goal. It's not an ideal situation but he's the best kicker in the team and he's improving. I just don't see the point in constantly bagging him a la this thread.

re: the storm game, Rankin kicked 3/5, Cam Smith kicked 1/5. They scored 4 tried to our 3 - it wasn't goalkicking that lost us the game.
The Knights game is a different story, but we shouldn't have to rely on kicking goals to beat them anyway.

I couldn't care how many goals Cam Smith kicked ( who cares) !
One more conversion from Rankin would've netted us 2 points :roll:

Not every close game is won and lost on goal kicking. Unless a kicker misses one from right in front that costs his team the game, you can't blame a goal kicker for a close loss.
