I am disappointed and annoyed, but there’s some burning things I’m at a loss to understand…
Point One… Kicking in general play
Why on earth do we persist on so much kicking in general play? Weather it’s grubbers or cross-field kicks… we are one of the worst sides with the boot… yet we play as though we masters with it! Robbie Farah is playing like a lark! He’s had countless opportunities this season to run the ball or spread it wide by smart kick passes… instead he elects for the kick… We used to be a side which pushed the ball through the hands at break neck speed! I remember out centres / back-rowers off-loading the ball almost immediately after catching it! What happened? We had success with grubbers against Para and we’ve stuck with it since…
Point Two… Our right side attack
Much has been said about the defence (and it has been justified) but why on earth do we even bother using this side of the field? Last week we only wanted to go to Lawry and Lote… This week we seemed to only want to go to Ayshford and Fitzy… The ball gets there with a bit of space and before you know it… nothing… nadda… it just stops! We have Brown sitting on the bench who is capable of so much more, yet he gets no time while Fitzy does nothing every week? I am baffled and confused and Sheens needs to seriously justify his position in our side! I know he doesn’t loose us games and I hate hearing “fans” boo the bloke but he doesn’t offer the side a thing!
Point Three… Bombs! Bombs! BOMBS!!!
We are going to be the target of aerial assaults all season if we don’t sort this out! While every other club protects their players catching… we just seem to watch! How on earth a side scores like that after bombing it from half-way is hopeless!! I’m starting to think every time the ball is put up we should just bash it dead…
Anyway… Without getting into the Sheens bagging and the rest of that hoohaa, these three points are going to cost us a lot of games this season should we not sort them out. If anyone can provide some reasoning or explanations to any of them… please do!
We are a great side, who I believe is by far the best team in the comp when we get our game plan right, but the last few weeks we’ve looked lost in attack and hopeless under the high ball and this is ultimately costing us…
Come on tigers!!! Lets sort this out… the bye round really couldn’t have come sooner… Let’s recoup and smack those Rabbitoh scum!
There is an old saying that " form is temporary and class is permanent" I am sure that our attack will click soon, and if we keep defending like we have for the past few weeks , we will be fine
Fitzy has none and never had any class,yet he gets picked every week,why?why does Sheens pick a back on the bench to get anywhere from 3 to 0 minutes every week,Sheens is a knob.
