    seems to be creeping in
    townsend did it 3 times in a row last night
    obviously I think it is something they will work on in the coming weeks but it was a bit 2015es last night with the kicks
    I bring it up because if I have a criticism of flanno it is that last year this wasn't addressed effectively

    Wasn't the only thing like 2015 that crept in last night. Forwards playing first receiver in attack or taking settlers in the fifth. I think it may have just been a fatigue thing. Having a few changes in the backline may explain why we didn't spread it as much.

    I'd prefer we ran it on the 5th or put a soft grubber in that barely makes the in-goal because we smash teams running it off from their line.

    Not ideal but our kickers have been great all year. Last night was a bit of an bludger. Our line speed is incredibly fast this year also. They struggled to make the 50 meter line during any of those 7 tackle sets.

    The slow starts after a week off are a worry, this needs to be addressed if we get the week off in the semi's.

    We've always been slow starters, however less this year.

    The old ways are creeping back in though.

    I think it's more of a defensive thing.

    Exactly we started the same way against the dogs.
