I reckon Kearney has them working the back line moves as the only priority. I don't reckon Sheck is going to go against the game plan either. He's not that kind of player.

And looking at how our edges worked yesterday I'm pretty happy for them to be playing that strategy.

I always reckon working well practiced structures works a lot better under pressure, than constantly hunting for a line break which may or may not happen depending on how strong or weak the defense is.

They just need to settle into their structures, so they become second nature and they can play eyes up footy at the same time. That's when we win the comp IMO. Nothing else will do it.

Toovey tried to mention RTS as one of the best in the game right now and the rest of the panel looked shocked as they were busy riding Tedescos dick.

On a side note...anyone else noticed how his supporting runs have almost completely dissappeared? Its kind of sad when you see guys like Tedesco and Charnze running next to the ball carrier almost every play in hopes of a offload..
Hard to back up players when you are being first receiver so much. Hopefully with Kodi Nikorima here RTS can go back to chiming in the line when he see's fit instead of playing third halfback trying to take pressure off CHT or AK. He needs to get out of that role ASAP...

This is a screenshot from RTS’s Wikipedia page. Check out the tries scored figures.

The ratio of tries scored to appearances playing for the Warriors (0.29) as compared to the Roosters (0.33) is not as good, though there’s nothing serious there. But the tries/appearances ratio as a Kiwi international (0.81) is way, way ahead of either. He’s nearly three times more likely to score a try playing for the Kiwis as he is playing for us.

Of course, this is no criticism at all of Roger. He’s easily the best player we have. But it’s curious. ???

He spent his first 7 tests on the wing, trotted up 8 tries. That’ll do it.

He is starting to sniff around the ruck area. Remember KNs try, the gap opened be ause they chose RTS as the danger on the inside.

Not always what he does is effective, it is his presence that confuses defences as well.
