We ask no questions of opposition defences.
It must be 80/90% of our 'attack' - if you could call it that - is just one out running off the dummy half.
I can understand it in our own half... But even in their 20m zone I saw this same boring garbage.
I don't know what they do at training... Play cards?
Other teams must laugh at us... Ive seen junior teams play with more enterprise... And then I think of the money these guys are on.
It's a bloody rort

Tbh ink, we scored 4 tries tonight on the best defensive team in the comp

But I do agree with your point. It was slightly better today with Brooks directing traffic, as opposed to JLJ, but there's a long way to go. Lawrence back on that left edge will help as well.

Tbh... I only saw the final quarter... I guess fatigue played it's part too.
But yeah I take your point... 4 try's for us is amazing..... But let's face it we need to score 7 or 8 tries to win a game as we always concede at least 4

Tonight was almost a carbon copy of the Parra game. Had it on a platter, but couldn't last the whole 80.

Yep agreed.

We lost the battle in the ruck for the majority of the second half, which ended up killing us. Had very little time or space to get the ball wide. Sharks linspeed was very impressive as well.

it was on the back of 5-6 really sus penalties though. We got some weird as penalties.

and then we scored those tries (two from dummy half) on the back of field position and paper thin sharks D

the MWZ try was the best of the lot definitely though.

ET has really impressed me in the way he supports the forwards. He always runs with them so it's not a lone thing. These players have a lot to learn from him

the tries may look good in the highlights but if you see the plays leading to it, there's nothing to it.
the ET try is out of nowhere. Eisenhuth just does something different which definitely doesn't seem part of the plan coz none of our playes were ready

they had 15 line breaks to our 5- tells it all really.

x3, took Sharks 70 minutes to figure out if they shifted the ball wide they'd make yards, then they could go through the middle of a back-pedaling Tigers side. It's like Sharks paid no attention to the clinic Roosters put on us, they left it very late to truly exploit our weaknesses.

I disagree we didnt ask any questions. We held them at bay initialy because that stupid oaf got sinbinned, then when the young bench guys came on we got on top. We started rolling them through the guts and making yards on the edges. We scored 4 tries, 2 of them skillbased and would have scored more if the handling and attacking kicks were better.

Ill discipline and panic lost us that game because we dont have a general on the field to ellicit control and provide direction.

We're definitely look weak in terms of attack. Very few set plays and a lack of speed out wide doesn't help. Our backrow also contributes as we lack a serious hole runner who can bend a line, such as we saw with Brooks throwing short balls to Lovett. He should have been using Suli who is much more threatening.
