It was good to see Game 1 and good to see the Blues get a win.
But one thing I noticed. Nearly every time I saw NSW get tackled, they made contact and they player virtually stopped. Only Jake Trebvovovic seemed to make a little dent.
While when Queensland hit the NSW defensive line. Once the players made contact, they kept going for another step, then they usually fell forward.
It wasn’t just tonight’s game. Game 2 and 3 last series I noticed the same thing. Queensland were making meters and not being stopped once tackled. NSW gets tackled and stops.
I think it’s in the training and I have seen Melbourne make meters once tackled but stop the other team. Has anyone else noticed this too?
