Can’t figure why clubs aren’t hiring him to work with their kickers. He showed how dangerous a mundane part of the game can be, and clubs aren’t interested in utilising it?
My guess is that it’s very difficult to emulate. Kyle Feldt is the closest modern replicant but I’d argue he’s probably the only one.
I mean, Pat Richards kicked a 72m drop out and he probably can’t teach that to anyone else.
I was a staunch defender of Taylor, but his operative to RIchards to CEASE doing these style contested kickoffs because it potentially gave up 10 or 20 metres on the kickoff was the most BRAIN DEAD coaching decision I think I’ve ever seen. Creating even a 20% chance of retaining the ball over the course of a game might result in possession being retained possibly twice a game?
To be honest, Patty’s kicks created a 50/50 chance most times they were executed properly.
Well, maybe not the most brain dead - although it’s up there with Kyle Lovett in the centres…
