To complete the halves stat attack here is Kodi

Kodi had a decent year stats wise. Surprised some teams aren't kicking his tires from a depth option perspective.

Le Kodi 2021
21 Games
Tries 4
Average Kicking Metres 146
Forced Drop outs 8
Goal Kicking 80.8%
Try Assists 11
Line Break Assists 12
Tackle Efficiency 88%
Yeah - so…..stats don’t tell you everything bro 😂

Mr Brownstone

I disagree with that, but I'm not disagreeing with you. Stats mean a whole deal of shit and that's what coaches use when it comes to selecting squads the world over when it comes to every single sports.

If you are having an off day the stats say so.

If you are having an off month the stats say so. The coach will then begin to plan whether that player is in a rut.

If you are having an off first quarter of the season the stats say so and then the coach has to react faster and if it's affecting the team then he has to change things up to get things back in action.

So then another person comes in with better stats, maybe sooner than a quarter of the season, and he plays a blinder and takes over. The stats says alot.


I was keeping an eye on the NRL stats checker for every player and found that Luiciano Leilua, (Joey's brother) was constantly getting around 50 and above points whilst playing for the Tigers and he was performing well in a weak team.

The stats say a lot.

So if someone says 'stats don't mean anything' they are bull shitting and they don't know anything themselves.
Yeah totally. I’m a Supercoach addict and that’s all about player stats. Keeps the season interesting even after the Warriors have turned to custard.

Confirmed yet? I’m so fucking stoked. Haha even if we paid 200k, we free up 400k+ for someone who PLAYS. No disrespect but this is a business. I’m absolutely loving POS at the helm

Please, please do not give a spot to Kosi next year . That would be a waste of a spot and with suspensions and injuries , we’ll end up playing .

For better or worse it is another part of the club's DNA gone. Is Jazz the longest serving player now? Bunty Afoa? I'm looking forward to some of our juniors starting to filter in.

He’s apparently on $520k, hopefully we’re paying no more than 40% so we have $300k to spend for next year.

Disappointing end for such a high profile player.

It’s a big f**k no to Curtis Scott. He’s lost the plot and very bad news.

Speaking of f**kwits though, somebody on the Sharks facebook group suggested Campbell-Gillard. Had to laugh at that one, ridiculous suggestion.

It's a great idea. Great Prop. Got back to his SOO form this year. He's also a cleanskin.

I read he's off to the Warriors though

Dont know if there’s any truth to that, saw it earlier. Off the sharks league unlimited forum.

Sorry hard to follow, I copied and pasted it. The initial part ended at “ridiculous suggestion”, the response was the “it’s a great idea” etc part. Was around RCG as far as I could understand, can’t see how it could happen though. Likely just a rumour, only way I could see would be Lodge to the dolphins for 2023 and RCG joins.

Just had a quick read and it seems RCG has told Para he won’t be taking the player option for 2023 with Eels.

But, apparently he’s earning 750k, can’t see us getting anywhere near that, especially as Ben Murdoch-Masila and Tohu Harris slowing down and potentially ending up in the front row for 2023 onwards.

Always good to hear what others are saying, would be a good signing for sure

Yeah I saw that price tag too, also panthers chip in a chunk from his previous contract. Not sure for how much longer though. With the sum and body shape, you’d almost say it’s a substitute for Tohu Harris. Would have wondered about retirement but sounds like he’s keen on internationals again. Guess there could be a scenario where the eels know RCG is not taking up his option, so they prioritise Niukore and let RCG walk.

Normally u wouldn’t pay much attention to the rcg one but there’s some unique factors in play here.
With redcliff coming into the comp there’s going to be guys signing for them in nov and there’s going to be clubs wondering if it’s worth keeping those players for one year.
Meanwhile a short term deal with us would look like an attractive proposition for someone in rcg boots as they get a chance to move up to brisbane and get settled in a year early.
This particular rumor may not be true but it is a scenario that could unfold with a couple of players and we could be in a unique position to pick up a couple of discount one year deals.
The ash Taylor experiment shows we’re open to it.
One year deals do have there pros and cons but say we could pick rcg up for $500,000 for next season- you’d jump at that.
Addin Fonua-Blake, lodge, rcg would be the best prop rotation in the comp.
Stranger things have happened and it’s shaping as a crazy off season in the player market.

My understanding is RCG has told Parra he won’t take up his player option for 23’ and can go to the market but will play for Parra next season. It looks like he’s angling for a spot with the Dolphins but could still stay with Parramatta if it doesn’t happen.

I know a lot of people are putting a lot of hope in his return but looking at this I worry that what we get back is pretty much what we had before but older and more injured. A mid/long range kicker, that shovels the pass on rather than gets tackled with the ball and is unlikely to break the line.

BTW he scored 1 try, which put him equal with Kodi given he played half the games. Although Kodi wasnt on the field a lot towards the end of the season but i still figure the stats are still very similar.

Also does Reece fill the role of a long range kicker? i couldnt find his avg kick distances. Lastly does the long range kick have the importance it once did with the significant rule changes? could it be that players easier penetration into the oppositions 40 has dictated that most players are now kicking for more accuracy and less distance?
Good post gREVUS
Just out of interest here is Mitchell Pearce for 2021. Am suggesting a cross comparison as both Shaun and Pearce in 2021 played game management style and are big name players.
Similar numbers between both. Shaun more forced drop outs. Pearce more tries and better defence.

M Pearce 2021
Games 12
Tries 3
Forced drop outs 4
Kicking Metres 309
Try Assists 7
Line Break Assists 7
Tackle Efficiency 92%

Pearce 8 wins 4 losses
Johnson 5 wins 5 losses (including a 1 point victory over the Panthers)
Shaun on a closer review of the stats Shaun played his first three matches at 5 8th and lost all three.
He was then switched to half back where he went 5 wins and 2 losses.
So based on that lesson I hope we play him at half back and not Standoff.

It will be interesting to see what they do with Shaun Johnson next year - do we try to manage his work load in the early months? Do we only play him against the weak teams as that’s where we’ll likely get the most use out of him (I.e he’s likely to help us to a win over Canberra, Doggies etc then to win a game against Panthers, Storm), or do we simply play him until he breaks?

Either way it’s great to have one of the halves who produce the most try assists and forced drop outs in the league over the last few years.

Edit: just a few stats as I was bored this morning.

Cleary 2020 and 2021 - 34 regular games, 34 try assists and 45 forced drop outs (1.3 pg)

Cody Walker 2020 and 2021 - 40 regular games, 51 try assists (1.2pg), 19 drop outs (.47 pg)

Shaun Johnson 2020 and 2021 - 26 regular games, 28 try assists (1.1pg) and 34 drop outs (1.3pg)
