What happened to it?
Spiral Bombs, touch finders and repeat sets. This is where Benji excelled earlier this year.
He was putting those spiral bombs sky high and giving fullbacks and wingers nightmares.
It was a really effective tactic causing some spillages, but it also allowed more time for the chasers to pressure the kick takers. I’ve been noticing Brooks doing more of the bombs and they aren’t very effective.
The touch finders and grubbers in goal have gone from his game also.
I’d really like to see his kicking game utilised more like the early rounds.
I’m thinking the Tigers need to slow the pace down a bit. I think they have focused recently on quick starts and some frustration and errors are creeping in (Penrith game). We miss a lot of tackles, but scramble well. This takes energy out of the boys.
More touch finders for a breather and re-focus.
More spiral bombs to pressure the opposition.
Don’t try the fast precision execution plays inside the opposition 20. Work them over with repeat sets and wear them down.
Play at our own pace and reduce the errors - safe and steady.
I dont care if we aren’t scoring flashy tries and are only winning by only 2. A win is a win.
