Nofa needs to stay on his wing in defense

Post by Keg » Sun 02 Apr, 2017 4:36 pm

Nofa is responsible for so many tries being scored against us every week. He needs to stay on his wing in defense and not get sucked in every time. Its ridiculous I could bet my house on him getting sucked in when it goes down his wing. I'm pulling my hair out here.

he's no good on the wing, might be better in the centres maybe? or some shock therapy to get him to learn to stay on the damn wing

I'm pretty sure it's a defensive plan that we go with but clearly he is the weakest link defensively in the team.

If Nofo stays on his wing, he will be playing in a different park than Kev!

The problem with the right hand side D is there is no trust with each guy inside them and that comes from the middle 3rd in D inside our 20..

None of the inside men are moving out with any urgency. If usually ends up 5 (or more) on 3 with a lot of space.

I agree. Nofo stays on the wing they score inside every time because the inside defence strategies are either wrong, or not properly executed.

surely it would be worth a shot not having them on the same side? swap Nofo with Suli maybe? I don't know, but every single side in the comp knows to attack our right

I think it starts all the way in the middle.... get juro on the video again and watch the props. To be honest, from watching it live, Woods is where it starts.

It starts with Mitchell Moses coming in, the others are forced to come in to cover that gap.

If nofo went to Melbourne he would be the leading try scorer ... Jack has gone up to the next level under a good coach and team

Mate you should be pulling Naiqamas hair out. The bloke is the worst defensive centre ive ever seen. He got a bit of slack when he was scoring/creating tries, but hes not even doing that anymore. Nofa got a decent shot on Nightingale for one of the tries but theres no way the other 2 could be pinned on him.

Watched it back on replay including slow mo some key moments and Nofa isnt the problem. As some have already mentioned if he stays on his outside man they score closer to the posts. It does start further in at the forwards being lazy but it gets much worse when it hits Moses and then Kevvie isnt the greates t defender but he is made to look much worse because of the inside forwards who just lazily hang and make everyone come in 1

He's 20m off his wing,and there's always 2 players on his outside. He's clueless. We're the 2 try's from kicks Naiqamas fault? Widdop and Nightingale said after the game they studied video all week and they knew "Nofoaluma likes to jam in". EVERY TEAM KNOWS IT EXCEPT US
