I know this is the general narrative here but there’s not a statistic that actually backs that up, is there? The rest of the stuff, grappling, wrestling etc. was authored by Storm
Your supporters have complained for that same decade or two about being the highest penalised team in the competition. Surely that's enough data for you, isn't it? Storm have introduced most of the despicable tackling techniques but your mob is constantly offside on your tryline. Your tryline was impenetrable (shoutout to SLRBroncos) for all those years prior to V'landysball being introduced, because they were constantly offside and spoiling the ruck. Willing to give away penalty after penalty because you would reset the line and then be offside for the entire set and spoil the ruck.
V'landysball was introduced to stop the Roosters and the Storm from ruining the f***ing game with these bullshit tactics.
