A thread for all 2020 Round 11 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) ).

Hope everything is ok with Michael Chee Kam.

He looked in a bad way after that head knock....sickening....never like to see anyone in that situation. Feel for the family if they we're watching, thank god the camera cut away.
Yeah there was a couple of ugly KOs in that match. Matterson trying run off the wobbles.

How good is Harry Grant, that first half from the Tigers was pretty good.
Didn't show the same energy in the second.

Another week stuck in the bubble in Queensland another shutout performance by the Storm.

Showing the Warriors how it’s done since 1998.

I don't know if it is the new rules, but it has been 20 years since there were so many teams getting consistently beaten by huge scores each week.

The gulf is definitely getting bigger.

I think teams are being punished for dopey salary cap decisions: that year average halves were all getting a mill.

All the top teams haven’t overpaid for talent. (Aside from the sombrero of course).

I had a quick look at how scores in 2020 under new rules compare to scores in 2018 & 2019 to this point in the year (Start of Round 11).

Surprisingly 2020 has the fewest number of games in which a team has had 30+ put on them (28) - 29 in 2019, 30 in 2018.

However there have been 14 games in which a team has had 40+ put on them compared to just 8 in 2019 and 7 in 2018

In 2018 13 teams were on the receiving end of 30+ scorelines, 14 teams in 2019 and those were well spread across all. For example in 2019 only the Panthers had a string of big scores against them. This year just 11 teams have tasted the pain of conceding 30+ with those being well concentrated results on just a few teams. (Titans 6, Broncos 4, Cowboys 4, Bulldogs 3, Warriors 3).

In the first 10 rounds of the last 3 years the Storm and the Rabbits have only had one 30+ score put on them. For the Storm that is after starting slowly and working their way into seasons. The 30+ for the Rabbits was that game in Perth against the Warriors.

The Titans have 11 30+ scores against them in 3 seasons. The Warriors have conceded 30+ in 8 games in 3 seasons but have the most scores 40+ against them (5) of any team.

Scores conceded up to start of Round 11 in the last three years:

Broncos (30-39) 7 (40+) 2 = TOTAL (30+) 9
Bulldogs (30-39) 5 (40+) 3 = TOTAL (30+) 8
Canberra (30-39) 5 (40+) 1 = TOTAL (30+) 6
Cronulla (30-39) 2 (40+) 2 = TOTAL (30+) 4
Cows (30-39) 6 (40+) 3 = TOTAL (30+) 9
Gold Coast (30-39) 7 (40+) 4 = TOTAL (30+) 11
Manly (30-39) 4 (40+) 2 = TOTAL (30+) 6
Melbourne (30-39) 1 (40+) 0 = TOTAL (30+) 1
Newcastle (30-39) 5 (40+) 1 = TOTAL (30+) 6
Parramatta (30-39) 2 (40+) 2 = TOTAL (30+) 4
Penrith (30-39) 5 (40+) 0 = TOTAL (30+) 5
St George (30-39) 3 (40+) 1 = TOTAL (30+) 4
Souths (30-39) 1 (40+) 0 = TOTAL (30+) 1
Roosters (30-39) 2 (40+) 0 = TOTAL (30+) 2
Warriors (30-39) 3 (40+) 5 = TOTAL (30+) 8
Tigers (30-39) 0 (40+) 3 = TOTAL (30+) 3

The Tigers and the Dragons fare well in the blowout stakes.

In 2020 there is definitely a bigger share of the blowouts going against the bottom teams rather than shared across with the Warriors, Dogs, Titans, Cows and Broncos having 75% of the season's blowouts scored against them and little damage at all to teams in the top 6.

Hear what Andrew Voss said after Lui stole the ball late in the Canberra v Souths game...
"The strippers are out in Canberra tonight."

I wonder if Tino from the Storm has second thoughts on signing with the Titans, he is getting better and better at the Storm and with Bromwich getting on he could have taken his starting spot in the next year or so, also, don't seem to see so much of big Nelson. I thought Tino was a kiwi but he isn't. :-(
