    one of the best threads

    would you be able to do one for this year as well?

    one thing im really interested in is line breaks and line break assists. it seems like most of our attacking plays are due to intercepts or individual brilliance. there seems to be a lack of set moves especially since teddy's injury.

    Another useless stat or two.
    Dynamics of the 6 & 7.

    Forget about tackles as Taylor doesn't actually worry about tackles made even though he states how important it is and the fact that the Tigers are improving.

    The 6 and 7 apparently have to take more control so that means running the ball and you'd think or hope, setting up or leading to tries.

    In 18 rounds according to NRL stats
    Brooks has made 115 runs. When Farah has played Brooks ran 65 times (57% )and when Farah didn't play he ran 50 times (43% of his runs). I guess Brooks has therefore been stifled by Farah !!

    Moses has made only 72 times. 40 times (61%) when Farah played and 28 times (44%) when Farah didn't play.

    Is someone else getting in the way of Brooks and Moses or do they run when encouraged by Farah.

    I wonder what stats Taylor uses when he picks a team to play each week, e.g. missed tackles by a centre.

    One might say, that by holding onto the ball instead of passing from the deck, Farah is giving Moses and Brooks less time, forcing them to run more?

    With early service they have more time to ball play and therefore control the team more?

    If you take a step or two from dummy half, that should get the receivers moving before they get the ball as well, instead of standing still giving the defence more time to get to you, shouldn't it?

    Not really.

    The defence can move as soon as the ball clears the ruck.

    So if Farah has taken two steps, the defence is now likely 5m away from the play the ball. By the time the ball is passed and received by the halves, the defence is now likely at the play the ball or better.

    You'd have to play a pretty deep attacking line to give you any space to work with.

    Getting the ball from the deck gives you most of those 10m to play with, both in space and time.
