I thought we would have learned

Post by RatedRKO » Sun 01 Apr, 2012 6:11 pm

Issac Luke scored once 1m out from dummy half. I seen it coming again miles away and thought we would have it covered this time. And he gets through AGAIN! How did we not stop him?!?

Oh, and then there is the whole putting games away thing. Although it's been like this for years so I don't really expect them to learn it now.

STUPID! :brick:

Look at the players involved defensively for that second try. Same old underperformers. But they'll be there next week.

It's been happening for the better part of six seasons now. Why do you think they would have learned?

The play the ball for Luke's second try could well have been a penalty for walking off the mark. Two guys got left on the ground and no one had the mental or intestinal fortitude to quickly get into marker. Too many watchers at a crucial time.

Those little 1% plays are lacking at the moment. The goods teams make them and we don't - simple

You saw it coming because you were watching. Heino couldn't see because he unforgivably had his back turned. Game over.

Heighno was still getting back from the tackle, back turned or not he wasn't quick enough.

More of a worry is yet again our young props were caught out at the ruck defensive line by not moving quickly enough - again. Each week they are spectators to opposition tries when they should be stopping them by being a metre or two quicker into the position to stop the try scorer.

Sheen's has had 10 years to teach them to close out a game,he is incapable of doing this,he needs to go,along with some players,after the Warriors semi last year you would have thought that they would learn,but alas. :cry:

Barra - you NEVER turn your back.
That close to the line from an experienced player is unforgivable.

Running backwards is exactly why they do the drill. To be fair, when we score from that situation ( a Farrah special ), we are just brilliant. When someone does it to us, they are'nt brilliant, it's our players fault. That's the problem with armchair critics though.
Be Yourself, no one else can do it for you.

Yes CK, you are correct. Although heighno looked to be out on his feet and would never have gotten back in time, he should not have turned his back.

More a concern for me is that week after week either Woods, Groat or BMM (or sometimes two of them as in the try in question) are a metre or two from where they need to be when the opposition scores through the ruck. Groat in particular has very slow lateral movement, he was beaten from marker on this occasion and BMM was a step slow in coming up and in off the line too, allowing Luke to get passed him to the line.

Will agree with you about our goal line defence, barra.
It's the hookers job to look for tired big guys who can't quite get into position - Farah does it to perfection.
Groat is really struggling on the line though and , like BMM and Woods is only a novice.
The other guys , especially Heighington , have no excuse.
Imagine you were at dummy half that close to the line and look up to see a defenders back?
You would run straight at him - and he did.

True mate, and I thought at the time that if Farrah is there at least one of Luke's tries doesn't happen because Robbie is usually watching like a hawk for his opposite.

And talking about Luke playing at what he saw, surely they spoke about being even more alert when Luke was at dummy half close to our line... if so it was a lapse in concentration by all concerded.
