When fergo was out and taka in, we seemed to attack down his end more and kicked towards takas wing more that sivos.
Anyone watch dogs v broncos?
Isaako has a knack of being off his wing a fair bit. Kick in behind him just like dylan brown did for Sivo the other night and also quick hands and let Sivo steamroll straight over him.
- Kick low to Oates. He is good for 1 or 2 knock ons a game.
- early ball to Waqa so he can smoke Alex Glenn.
- offloads to run their big fwds around. Their lateral movement is not the best.
- Man up everytime Haas and Fifita get the ball.
- don't think it would be a bad idea to also kick on the 3rd or 4th and turn them around. Again make their fwds do a lot of work off the ball.
- rush milford so he cant get his spiral bombs away.
- Target Milford with attacking bombs. He is not the best jumper..

Gal just said on 100% Footy that whilst initially annoyed that the Sharks got a shorter turnaround than everyone and wanted their game on Sunday, he has since found out of the winner of Sunday’s game has to backup on Friday night, whereas as the winner on Saturday night gets another Saturday night.

In what world could it possibly be true that one team gets a 5 day and another a 7 day heading into the semis when you could give them both 6 days?

Welcome to the wonderful world of the NRL, where commonsense and fairness are out the door.

Lol surely they couldn't be that stupid.
I mean that would be ridiculous. A 5 day turn around in finals lol. No point on playing this weekend if the case. Would be a huge f**k up

Found this interesting. Whilst we don’t have the most experienced finals side, we’re certainly not the least experienced.

If the winner of Parra game gets a 5 day turnaround in a fiunal series that will do me.
Why wouldn't you swap it with other game so both sides who finished outside top 4 get a 6 day turnaround?
Moronic. Surely could not be that unprofessional ?

I don’t think the scheduling for week 2 has been confirmed yet (except game on Friday / Saturday).

I havent seen anything to suggest Gallen is correct (or wrong)

Imagine the NFL pulled a stunt like this.
5 day turnarounds are f**king ridiculous in normal rounds in a physical sport like NRL and potentially dangerous. The intensity in a finals match goes up a level. I still dont believe it personaly. I reckon we will play Saturday. Cant be that moronic.

It’s also not just the turn around but the travel.

For the final on the other side it will be in Sydney no matter what, and there is 4 Sydney’s sides in our half. So no travel issues.

Us or broncos will also need to travel to Melbourne or Canberra. So sides would probably need to travel on Thursday only giving 3 days preparation.

Yeah wouId be surprising (and f**ken stupid!!), if it was true!!

Also how could you justify giving roosters / Souths a 8 day turn around but us / broncos 5 days .....
