    Nothing set in stone with only a few games under the belt. Things can change very quickly.

    With all this non stop talk of SOO and Non-anthem singing did anyone see the attendance figures for last week-end. If I was the NRL I would be worried very worried!!!

    The details of that tweet are pretty light.
    For all we know May's lawyers requested an extra week.

    Makes you wonder if they care though given all the money is through TV these days.

    A month on. Lets see what has changed after 4 wins on the trot against somewhat weakened opposition.
    Please note 8 teams have the bye and we have played an extra game than them. So the rankings are a little inconsistent.

    Stats via the NRL

    We are 15th we it comes to points scored and 16th for Tries scored. Same
    15th when it comes to possession up to 7th
    Supports 8th 5th
    Line breaks 14th same
    Tackles breaks 14th same
    All run metres we are last. 11th
    Kick return metres 8th. 9th
    Off loads 14th. 11th
    Line Break assists 14th. same
    4th for Tackles made. 14
    Total kicks 12th same
    We are 1st for conversions. same
    Errors made. Now the worst
    We are the 2nd worst team on Penalties conceded. Now the worst
    Set Completion we are the worst in the NRL Same
    Post contact metres 7th 10th
    Decoy runs 4th 2nd
    All runs 15th 7th
    Dummy half runs 13th. same
    Try assist last. 13th
    Missed tackles we are the worst in the NRL. same
    Total kick metre 9th 10
    Ineffective tackles 14th. 12
    We are the 3rd worst for handling errors. Now we are the worst team in the NRL for handling errors.

    There have been some improvements over the past month with runs and metres in particular improving. A small improvement for Try Assists, Off loads and a big increase for possessions.
    We had made the 4th most tackles a month ago and now we 14th.

    While the result show no improvement in Points and Tries scored compared to other teams I feel we have improved slightly over the past month and we are coming from behind in a lot of other categories due to our poor performances in the first 2 months of the season.

    However lets not kid ourselves there has been no improvements in Errors, Handling errors, missed tackles and our discipline when it comes to penalties has worsened.

    Should we have any shred of hope of finishing the year strong those areas will have to dramatically improve.

    Some interesting stuff.

    Just for clarity here, you’re comparing the 10 previous games to the now completed 14 games?



    Not that I’m asking you to, but comparing the 10 games to the 4 games in isolation might give us a batter indication of the improvement.

    It’s posisble we were so far behind in some categories that 4 games isn’t enough to make a decent dent on the stats.

    Attendance figures for this time of year are always horrendous.

    Combination of the coldest time of year, origin, rain etc.

    Yes I did the stats a month ago after 10 games and again after 14 rounds.
    We were way behind in some categories but I was curious to see if there had been any improvement now that we had strung a few wins together.

    Comparing the last 4 rounds against the previous 10 games would have to be done on an average. So the comparison could still be made against the other 15 teams.

    Sux for Sauce, good for us.

    I just wish Kiks would be ruled out as well. We need him firing and a week off would have been ideal.
