Guys I hardly ever post, but I feel like around here there’s a bit of negativity about “taylorball” and people not being happy with comments about the results not mattering. To a degree it infuriates me to hear it from our team, and I also didn’t trust “taylorball”; but I think I was just too blind to see through the spin.
I distinctly remember the panthers game and being totally distraught. BUT, it got me looking at our results where our centres had been affected.
Rd 11 and 16 simona’s gone off injured leaving 2nd rowers in centre
rd 15 same thing happens with Noffa
Rds 13 17 and 19 Milone’s been in due to both starting centres being out.
Hoeter was there rd 11,13,16,17
so that’s rounds 11 (Cowboys Loss),13(Titans Loss),15(Manly Loss),16(Penrith Loss),17(Eels Loss),19 (Broncos Loss) where we’ve been hammered by opposition’s outside backs. The only non injury affected game there was round 14 against the rabbits where we stuffed them.
add those 6 to our tally and we’d be sitting 4th or 5th.
Cheer up, guys. We’re WAY better than our results have been - Predicting top 4 next year.
