sounds like an end of season trip....where you a play a game against locals and get bashed and thrashed!So they have stayed over in Oz this week... judging my their Instagram accounts they are doing a road trip from the Gold Coast down to Sydney!! Looks like they are having a great time!!
True. Thing is, We won't win the battle up front with our forwards. Honest toilers. But to small to bend the line. Afoa does a good job with his leg drive. Paasi goes hard. But that's it.The painful truth is that our pack has been getting dominated so our offloads while still at a high frequency are at a low quality to flat footed players surrounded by opposition, or even to an offside team mate.
Harping on but until our pack wins the battle up front we're gana keep getting pumped like the useless summama biscuits we've been playing like.
The lack or serious support runners (not obvious decoys with their hands not ready lol) means our forwards are less likely to bend the line because there is no indecision in defenders to exploit: they can just number up and wrestle.
It’s one thing the warriors haven’t done well in years...
Wade McKinnon was our best support players always running through looking for someone to offload to him.I actually watched an old game where from our own goal line it went
1. Wade McKinnon
4. Lauaki with the offload to McKinnon running hard in support into a gap stepping the fullback and going all the way.
It was vs the Roosters and it was a fucking glorious 100 metre set ending with a gorgeous try.
The difference I suppose is the speed of our play the ball was light speed compared to the Melbourne wrestle fest we have now.
