Clearly Taylor has bought this tactic with him from the Roosters. I actually think it is a pretty good %play.
The past 2-3 years the Chooks always kick it high from around halfway or 40 metres out.Even slightly their own side of halfway they will put some up high. The goal is clearly to get plenty of hang time and land the ball between tthe 20 and 10.With the hang time the chase has time to get down there and to nail the opponents on the 10 metre line
Pearce does this 10 times a game at the Chooks. Its a pretty boring tactic, however if you execute it well it means you have our opposition having to go 80 metres most sets. It gts you in the grind so to speak.
Its only a small example however its something I think Taylor has clearly put into our gameplan. No adhoc kicking, no real risks on last plays. Taylor is trying to play us a more structured footy team and this part of the kicking game is evident.
