goal kicking isnt an issue at this point, it hasnt cost us a game this year
Burgandy - dont forget how important for and against is.

Even though its early in the season, had benji kicked only 3 more of the attempts he has missed, we would be sitting one spot higher, above the titans. Just as an example. He has missed a few sitters too.

Thats what it could come down to again this year. We dont want to be kicking at 50%. Missed conversions = a lesser points differential. That could hurt us.

At what point does goalkicking become a crisis?........when the Panther Vs Wests Tigers game tied at 24 All with 1 minute to play, and Benji has a penalty goal to win the match, just, yes just, right of the uprights and he gets unluckly and hits the upright and stays out......the crisis will start................. walking back to the car :oops: ,.................. waiting to get out of the carpark :brick: ................. friggin' driving all the way down the M4.............slamming the friggin' cardoor :twisted: ..........tellin the wife, I don't want dinner, and no, I don''t want to watch a friggin' movie or play friggin' cards........ then trying to ease the crisis, drowning my sorrows with my mate ,Jack Daniels

Its def a problem.

His kicking is down from last year.

He isnt hitting them as sweetly as he used to.

PS.....that missed kick on the weekend really hurt us.

Make 12-4,12-6 and its a different game.

PRECISELY.

Did anyone see Cameron Smith's reaction to the kick that he missed that would have put the storm only 6 behind on Monday night? The Australian and QLD hooker new that it probably cost his team a real shot at the game. He was filthy on himself and Bellamy was filthy at him in the rooms. It changed the whole game. Melbourne dropped their bundle.

This is the same situation. Those 2 points win ball games and improve for and against for the end of the season.

We need someone who can kick them. Thats the bottom line.

what do you consider a satisfactory kicking %? 75%?

so hes kicking at 57% now, so hes down 18% on what we would call a satisfactory to very good %age.

so hes is only missing 1 out of every 5 kicks that he "should" make from his 75% "satisfactory" goal kicking %

Its not just his percentage.

He is shanking kicks that he used to kick so sweetly.

His style looks different......and it isnt working.

Im terrified every time he takes a kick and with good reason.

I hope he and JT are hard at work on this.It really is crucial.
