JT spoke about two things when he came here:
2. playing sustainable football
point 1 is there for all to see
2. never quite understood what he meant by that- did he want us to stop playing razzle dazzle? maybe.
but from what i’ve seen all of this year is that we shoot out of the blocks in the first 20 then get too tired when woodsy/sue leave and shoot ourselves in the foot between 10 minutes either side of half time.
to me, that’s not sustainable football. he keeps going on about this and that type of football doesn’t work in the NRL and trying to make us play the way storm, broncos etc play but the fact is we don’t have the squad that they do. if we try to play to a blueprint of another team, it’ll never work. there was some positivity in the way he used ET at the start and i felt that was something different but every team could see it and again, that one type of play isn’t sustainable.
the very very first thing we need to do is still fix the defence. i really can’t fault the players this year coz to me most of them gave their 100%- there will errors, missed tackles, brain farts but i still believe no player apart from a couple should hang their head in shame.
need a massive improvement next season with half a dozen experienced signings otherwise we’ll be bottom 4.
