Fast fast game, possession everything….so why does Benji insist on kicking early? Tackle 3 and 4 kicks. IMO this really had a negative effect for us today. His 3rd tackle kick when Brooks made that great play from our own in goal was telling. We needed to play out that set, not turn the ball over to them on the 30 metre line after just 3 tackles.
Other times he kicks in the 4th when there simply is no reason too. Brooks does it occasionally too, but Marshall thinks he’s playing with Robbie again and kicking everytime he doesn’t know what else to do.
The sooner Reynolds is back in the 6 the better this team will be.
Alioia who I love, has to fix his hands. His dropped ball after our first try basically cost us the match. Then he drops it when we look to have Parra on the rack with a minute to go. Not good enough at all.
Nofo should be dropped for the eels try that got them to 18. To come in off your wing and make a lazy play not attempting to wrap the ball up directly lead to the try. Who replaces him I don’t know, but I think I’m now done with Nofo, that was horrible. His decision early in the game when French went down the sideline and kicked on the 2nd tackle was a horrible read too. I just don’t think he’s ever gonna get it.
On a positive…thank God for Chris Lawrence.
