What I Have noticed.

Post by Kerry Cogger » Wed 04 Jul, 2018 8:08 pm

Is that ever since we lost the great hitups of Fonua and Nofo our forwards have really struggled in run metres and fatigue.We really miss the hitups of these two guys.

I think its the game plan to keep the middle forwards fresh for defence.

Forwards were struggling then as well we just had our backs making the metres instead

Our problems started when our forwards form started to decline. Whilst we could of won at least another 2 or 3 games even with the decline, the fact now is they are unable to get over the top or even match the opposition forwards. Then add our ongoing issue of giving away field position with unforced errors, and we are where we are at. Injuries are part of every season so whilst they play their part they are not the core reason.
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

Our forward pack lost the plot when Packer got injured earlier in the year

I have noticed we are going rubbish recently

There are 17 players, you'd think they'd still be able to do THEIR jobs.. But no ..

It all went out the window when the Panthers absolutely smashed our forwards, we’ve been a shadow of our former selves since that game.

It was earlier then that.
The Newcastle game in Tamworth was the catalyst.
Our forwards were beaten at their own game by a less experienced but more enthusiastic pack and we have never looked the same since.
Every game since that we’ve come up against a big and agile pack we’ve crumbled.

Opposition sides have worked out we are still mentally weak and can be rolled up the guts like a cheap carpet

It was only going to be a matter of time until the scramble defence would lose its edge

We can't outscore anyone like we occasionally did from 2012-2017

No defence + no attack = no Top 8 , probably no Top 10

As far as the comp goes , can't believe we already down to a 9 horse race for the Top 8 at such an early stage in the season

The distance between the haves and have nots just gets bigger every season , no matter how close it looks after 8-9 rounds

Does the NRL recognize this ??

Greenberg wouldn’t be happy that the top 8 is sorted so early ...
Less bums on seats for the glory bound rounds ..

You certainly are on a negative bent lately.

I would put it to you that buying a membership is about supporting your football team regularly, not going expecting wins. It's nice to have both, maybe Tigers could introduce a money-back scheme where they refund supporters if they don't win enough games?

Maybe the players payments should be based on performance. If that was the case based on our last 10weeks our coffers would be full!

That’s the way it used to be. Back in the old, old days. You got much more for a win.
