Doesn't matter if its coaches instructions or just ET...same result....poor go forward. Hence we cant carry him at lock.Nelson wrote: ↑Sat 20 May, 2017 6:32 pmHe does the job he's told to go out and do. If he was told to go out there and tuck the ball under his arm and hit it up 12-15 times a game he would and he would probably make decent enough metres. He's got pretty good leg drive and massive determination. He's clearly been told to ball play a little probably both to conserve himself for the enormous defensive workload he's expected to shoulder and also because he's pretty useful as a ball player. Nobody is carrying him. Blame the coach not the player if you have a problem with the metres he puts out, it's certainly not for lack of effort or preparedness on his part.
Cleary is starting to show he has no idea like past coaches.
Frustration talking regarding Cleary mate.
LAUGH NOW CRY LATER--JS
He is questioning ET in the middle because we have 2 props and then one smaller lock forward. Now a lot of teams have a dominant prop like lock forward.
I still don't think ET in the middle is the problem. I think ET works better in the middle but I do think we need some bigger and better players in the pack.
I think our biggest problem isn't our go forward but our defence and discipline - dropped balls, missed tackles, giving away penalties etc.
