Exact same…literally, exact same…as always…
Miss simple goals…lost momentum. Have not addressed goal kicking in years, yet we all act surprised when we miss pot shots.
Then give up an easy try…instead of being 18 or so up, like a finals team would, we suddenly have a game on our hands. Our energy drops…heads go down. Errors occur. The free flowing game turns into one outs and bombs hoping for luck. Opposition lifts and we concede easily.
Leaders disappear. Late rally falls short.
I mean, this has happened about ten times v bottom teams the past few years. Exact same pattern.
As if to prove just how low are halves footy IQs are…we somehow ended up with isolation and quick hands plays for Lawrence as our go to play three times down the stretch. Heroic guy he is, but lead hands and immobile…yet our halves went to him. Isolating Lawrence…the same play you would run for prime Meninga or Inglis. That is the plays they ran. Someone had to lead and seize the game. But, as always, no one did.
It defies belief. Honestly, it just defies belief.
