Our best half of footy in 7 years?

Post by Tacky » Mon 16 Apr, 2018 12:29 pm

26-0 at half time. 75% possession. I'm pretty sure we only got 2 penalties.

We were clinical and dominant. And it was all because of us, it wasn't the refs giving us cheap possession. Brooks, Marsters and Marshall all getting repeat sets. Matulino putting in a mountain of work. I may have a very short term memory but, I can't remember a more complete half of football from us.

Absolutely best half easily.
Considering we were away from home and Brooky ain't a good away ground for us.

How's this for half time stats

213 tackles 83
21 missed tackles 6
1 play the ball in opposition 20 35
358 metres gained 1047
0 line breaks 5
7/13 completed sets 18/22
25% possession 75%
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Stat Attack: Wests Tigers' record-breaking start
Author Chris Kennedy Timestamp Mon 16 Apr 2018, 12:45 PM

With each week that goes by, it's becoming clearer the unfancied Wests Tigers' round one 'upset' win over premiers Melbourne was no fluke and their hot start has now stretched to five wins and one loss – the best in the club's history.

It could easily have been 6-0, with an unfortunate officiating error handing the Broncos a golden-point penalty goal in round three – a game Brisbane won 9-7 despite not scoring a try.

According to NRL.com Stats, the Wests Tigers' previous best start to a season came all the way back in their debut year, when they won four and drew one of their opening six games in 2000. It's a far cry from their worst season start, when they went 1-5 to begin 2012.

Their current Telstra Premiership ladder situation – sitting in fourth (equal second on ladder points) with the league's best defence (just 67 points conceded in six games) is made even more impressive when you consider their opposition.

Obviously the 'best' teams in the competition vary from year to year and the teams that finished top four last season aren't currently the best four teams this year. But having said that the Tigers have now twice beaten the Storm (1st, and premiers in 2017) with the Roosters (2nd), Eels (4th) and Sea Eagles (6th) their impressive list of scalps. Their one narrow loss was against the Broncos (3rd).

I can’t remember a better half. We’d normally give up a cheap try or two before halftime

But just as importantly, they kept their heads and played sensibly in the second half. Brilliant.

the stats were simply amazing. I think Sterlo said he had never seen stats like that before.
