I was looking over our results and trying to figure what exactly happened to our defence after it was looking good for a period of time against decent sides.
In the 6 games after the Titans game, the most points we conceded was 20, including 19 from Penrith, 14 from Canberra.
After that, our defence fell off a cliff and the least points we conceded was 26.
The obvious change was that was when Benji came into the starting side (We did beat broncos 48-0 in his first game back, but that looks like an outlier). I can’t see much else that has coincided with this, Brooks was also dropped around this time, but he came back and nothing much changed in this area. Our attack also improved around this time which is worth noting.
Anyway, I thought it was interesting, it says a bit about the impact Benji has on the team. Seems like we become all about attack and we score points but our defence falls apart.
