General 2016 Warriors Stats

Fuck sakes reading all those stats esp the team stats suggest if we weren't so morbid on attack and Robson didn't have his outter body experience and think we was Shaun Johnson with the amount of times he took the line up we might have acutally won this game.

Makes u wonder what the rest of them are doing?
We've got the players. Do we have the game plan?

I have to say, the most worrying thing for me from the game on the weekend was our completion rate - but, not because it was bad, exactly the opposite. Normally when we complete at that kind of percentage (85% and above), we score a decent number of tries and, generally speaking, win. I guess you've got to give a wrap to the Broncos defense, unquestionably the best in the NRL right now... many teams will struggle to break that down this year. And, on the other side, our attack is still a big work in progress - but even so, it's concerning.

When Mark Graham coached the side it was the same. High completion, low error, but didn't win anything.
You can look at the running stats of Shaun Johnson and Robson and conclude that Robson is too much a focal point of our offence that it deprives Johnson of the ball. You can also see the stats and think perhaps they are magnified by the fact Robson is slow as fuck in everything he does and the ball will die with him before he executes it properly. Considering how deep everyone is getting the ball you'd think that wouldn't be an issue though.

Tuivasa-Sheck the 200-metre man

Mon 21st March, 10:08PM

For the third time in as many games, fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has clocked up 200-metres plus for the Vodafone Warriors this season. Image |

Fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck set new standards with his phenomenal metre-eating form last season and he’s continuing in exactly the same vein with the Vodafone Warriors.

In his first three outings for his new club he has hit the 200-metre mark each time to average 217 metres a game, right on a par with what he achieved when he was named the 2015 Dally M fullback of the year.

Tuivasa-Sheck opened up with 200 metres from 14 runs in his Vodafone Warriors debut against Wests Tigers on March 5 followed by 205 metres from 25 carries against the Brisbane Broncos on March 11.

In his first appearance for the club at Mount Smart Stadium he went up a level again with 247 metres from 25 runs against Melbourne on Sunday to give him a total of 652 metres already this season. Easily the busiest player on the field (Ben Matulino and Jesse Bromwich were next best with 19 carries) he also made seven tackle breaks and had a clean defensive sheet.

Topping the tackle count against the Storm was Bodene Thompson with 52 while Simon Mannering – 55 tackles in each of the first two rounds – finished with ‘only’ 40 tackles this week. Thompson and Mannering both had no missed tackles.

While the Vodafone Warriors suffered a heart-breaking 14-21 defeat, they again showed improvement in a number of statistical categories.

They finished ahead in line breaks for the first time this season (4-1) and also headed their opponents in the missed tackles department for the first time, coming up with just 17 misses to Melbourne’s 27 (they missed 20 against Brisbane and 32 against Wests Tigers). In other numbers they made slightly more metres than Melbourne and had more total runs as well as off loads.

What quantifies a missed tackle? Because according to this we didn't miss any. The Bulldogs last try with Tui getting stepped as he came across in cover is this not a missed tackle?

A missed tackle is when a player breaks through an attempted tackle and an ineffective tackle is when the ball is offloaded during a tackle. Tui's wouldn't be considered a missed tackle as he didn't even get close enough to touch the player with the ball.

What I have no idea is how they allocate ineffective tackles when there are multiple tacklers and the ball is still offloaded. Do all the tacklers receive an ineffective tackle (IT) stat or only the one's who could have prevented the offload? What I'm meaning is three tacklers attempt a tackle but one is around the legs so isn't in any position to prevent an offload. Do all three get IT stats or only the two tackling around the torso?

Look near the top of the stats.
Warriors missed 22, Bulldogs 28.
Those 6 less missed tackles were probably the difference between winning and losing.
Mannering 51 tackles, no misses.
The man.

Thompson with 49 and 1 missed on the edge - that's also pretty rad...

Hoffman 23 made with 4 ineffective and 1 missed on the other edge - not so rad...

Actually really good thought I just had...

Johnson - 17 tackles, 2 missed
Thompson - 49 tackles, 1 missed
Ayshford - 16 tackles, 2 missed
Fusitua - 8 tackles, 1 ineffective


Leuluai - 10 tackles, 5 ineffective, 2 missed
Hoffman - 23 tackles, 4 ineffective, 1 missed
Kata - 5 tackles, 1 ineffective, 1 missed
Wright - 4 tackles, 2 ineffective, 2 missed

They were really hitting our right edge hard. Basically twice as hard as our left edge. And yet all the tries were scored on the left.

Big props to the right edge. Wicked defensive display. Probably won the game with no tries conceded down that channel...
