In so many games when the score is close we elect to not take a shot for goal off a penalty. At 10-6 with a penalty in front, surely it is no decision at all. Instead two plays later the ball goes wide, dropped and Titans run the length of the field.
It might have made no difference, we were struggling. But a kick at goal gives the other 12 players a break for a minute, gets the lead to six and the ball back from the kick off. There would be very few teams who would not take two points in a position like that.
The week before against Manly we decide to take a shot when the lead was 8 with 15 minutes left. Strange decisions. And tonight, very costly.
