personally I would rather they do 80 minutes and make sure that they dont have to worry about the last 6, however a point in its favour is that the longer the game goes the more likely it is the refs will put away the whistle, (not for the warriors as I am now aware). Last night the last quarter of the game, the broncos were getting away with a lot and it really ruffled the feathers of the panthers who had turned it up a notch. Mainly the target was Maloney, and while I have seen him dish it out before and he probably deserves it, this was obviously a targeted play to shut down Penriths play maker.That "six minute" thing the broncos do twice at their training sessions sounded interesting? and probably got them home in the cowboys game where they were shit for basically the whole game, until a raiding surge in the last 2 minutes stole them that win - bloody annoying to watch them get out of jail like that!
I hope we can implement something similar..
"It is all simple. We just have to bash down the front door with our middles getting us up the park and then our edges get us over the line. That six minutes is just for us to have confidence in ourself across the park. Everyone in the team has got a job in that six minutes to do."
A bit vague here to say the least? but if it works..
In the six-team scramble for two finals spots Broncos centre Kotoni Staggs has detailed how six-minute shot-clock simulation sessions at training have given the side confidence they can win close games at the death.www.nrl.com
