Thanks Willow, as always. Sounds like we were great.

One interesting stat I noticed was that Robbie made 24 tackles, when he usually makes 34 or so. This suggests that Gibbs/Galloway etc did more work than usual in the centre of the ruck, OR that Parra didn't run into the centre of the ruck, therefore there were fewer tackles to make. I've been wondering for some years whether it was really sensible to have Robbie making 35-40 tackles and expect him to remain sharp in attack as well.

The Tigers really dominated the ruck mate, and the defensive workload was shared a bit more evenly as a result. No surprise Farah had his best game of the season as a result.

Lote did get outjumped by Reddy but our centre turned his back on the ball and wasn't watching the ball and he should have helped Lote out.
