You guys missed something significant....

Post by Glennb » Sun 12 Jun, 2011 8:19 pm

Something incredible, unheard of, possibly historic......

Today....we scored a try from a BOMB!

Incredible enough that we put one up, but to score from it as well.....wow ;-)

It struck me the rarity of the moment as it happened, a piano flew by my window at exactly the same time

if wade plays more games we'll score more tries off kicks as he actually chases them.

Beats me why we don't do it more often. If it's a good kick it's a 50-50 chance. Better than a stupid kick close to the line like we usually do.

Wade Mackinnon is the most anti-tiger player I have seen in Black Orange and White in a long time...

He runs support lines, chases bombs, and is safe at the back.

Game winner, and here's me praying that he has Moltzen under his wing at training for next year.

I know where you are coming from Glenn but its nothing to be proud of. I can go and watch an under 10s game and see tries scored from bombs. I really think first grade should be about more than that.

i hate it too, and the commentators were saying the tigers score the least amount of kicks from bombs. which means we are more creative in attack than other teams that survive mostly on this ploy.

i will take a try from a bomb here and there but to make it a major part or our attack, no way.

I agree, its exactly how Penrith got to 2nd place last year and then failed miserably once everyone worked out they can't core unless they kick.

I tell you what McKinnon did a good play then. I couldn't believe that he came up with it but he did.
