Kicking game

Post by hybrid_tiger » Sun 29 May, 2011 4:34 pm

It us truly utter garbage and by far the worst in the comp.

Farah, Lui, Marshall - hang your heads in shame. Disgraceful.

Lui can kick well.

But he dead set goes to sleep / doesn't concentrate / plays too slow 50% of the time. It's like he loses focus.

He could be a great half...he could be terrible. Hard to tell which way he'll go at this stage.

Im a LUI critic but he should run 80% of the kicking game particularly short to the line. He put two short kicks in today and one was the bomb at the end which almost got us the leveller (it was also the best bomb ive seen a tigers player do in years). Also he put the one for the repeat set around the 50m min mark

There was a point during the game where I kept hoping that Farah wouldn't touch the ball on the last.

Decision making needs to improve severely.

We have the best young halfback in the game sitting in the NYC. He has the best kicking game on any NYC player to boot but unfortunately Lui has a mortgage.

We are not utilising the right-left-right combo well enough.
Decision making as someone said needs to improve.
We know Benji can kick 80m, but when and where to kick is important.

our kicking game seems to be average every year though which is what is most frustrating. since prince left we have woeful in this area. farah no longer kicks long and i don't know if that has something to do with his injury but we only kick well 1 in every 6 or so games.

Our kicking game reasonables the Tigers performances Either fantastic or a joke . This club is allergic to consistancy at any level apart from the fact we are inconsistant .

i swear we never put bombs or cross field kicks up, and when we do put a bomb, it just goes straight up and all the players have to stand around waiting for it to come down. mitch brown is so good under the cross field kicks, so i cant understand y we dont kick it to his wing!!!

We are one of the few (only?) teams to not consistently put bombs up for our wingers to chase.
We either use grubbers or Marshall kicks one midfield into the clouds hoping for a fumble (sometimes with success)
As much as I hate teams being boring and scoring from bombs all the time I hate losing every week even more.
Is it really that hard to do well?

Our kicking game is on par with......the bottom 3 teams in the comp this year.......based at times on not being given enough support from the defense. Kickers like Jamie Soward, who attack on the back of great defense have enough time to sip a cup of tea before kicking....ours are rushed.
