Which reinforces the fact we got our tactics wrong going in with two players and they went in with three. They slow the play the ball down and get reset. We let them get up quicker and we don't reset in time.
Mate where did you see this tactic of going in with two players? I’ve heard it mentioned but didn’t see the interview

Jazz in aftermatch interview. Also the assistant coach was interviewed just after Jazz and he said exactly the same thing. Said it was their strategy to not commit more than 2 tacklers so their were more players in the defensive line. Made no sense to me as it meant the opposition would get quicker play the balls.

Completely agree. If we were masters of the wrestle like Melbourne then maybe, but any speed gained from having an extra defender were more than nullified by their increased PTB speed.

Hope we go back to the status quo and stop that particular experiment.

Pretty solid tactic doing the complete opposite to whats necessary, considering Chooks are prob 1st or 2nd in the NRL at the wrestle.

Absolute rookie stuff, sounds like Justin Morgan music.

Isnt that changing to what it should be to start with?
From what I understood we started the season with the basic forward dominated plan because the split offseasons camps put us behind the 8 ball in our combinations. Didn't see much evidence of stage 2 of the plan on Sunday, maybe because the Chooks didn't let us.

On the 2 in the tackle strategy, was that a ploy to have the third defender hang back ready to shut down offloads? Catch 22 plan that backfired on whoever came up with that one, but at least it's a fixable issue.

We have a forum bet with the manly forum silvertails.net this week. Loser of the game has to update their logo/banner to one that of the choosing by the winning forum.

Apologies in advance.
We can live with DCE's pencil neck head grinning at us for a week but please Taj never do this with the Sharks, Shaun's already made us suffer enough for not believing in him.

Yeah don't worry we won't. Besides the fact they have a shit forum at the sharks, we try to pick the forum bets with weaker sides ;)

Actually behind the scenes, broncoshq, silvertails and our forum work together a lot to optimise experience for the fans via the forums. The gameday live scores and stats are courtesy of silvertails.

Still nothing better than beating the Broncs for this Warriors fan, can we make them put Reece Walsh on their banner if we win?

If the Sea Eagles win, will the folks at silvertails.net be happy to have I Loved Des At Manly And His Back-Ended Contracts! on their logo for a week?

Thought not....:)

Impressive, I like that - and good on the Silvertails for sharing - the stats and Addin Fonua-Blake...
