    His 'role' couldn't be the head coaching role surely. It's probably an assistant role tied in to whatever his permanent job is with the NZRL.

    Exactly, besides Hindy who really is much chop at offloading at our club???? People forget we lost Caylo,Mateo,INU and Grothe who besides Hindy were our best offlloaders. Lets not let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    The idea is to teach them offloads not say well you can't offload.

    Indeed.

    Round 1 vs Broncos; total team offloads = 1

    Kearney sacked Rnd 20

    Round 21 vs Broncos; total team offloads = 14

    If it was that easy every player in the NRL would have learnt how to offload well.

    They all know how to offload - they're first graders. The fact is most of them are better off taking the tackle and going for a quick play-the-ball.

    Round 1: wet, no go-forward

    Round 21: dry, Broncos down on form and intensity

    Yep round 1 was a wet night and first game of the season, hardly a fair comparsion. We are playing touch footy atm with a carefree attitude. If we played like this from round 1 it is interesting how we would have gone.

    Agreed. It's a shame that the game plan did not suit our squad.

    No matter our likes and dislikes, and even Pou's mania to not admit he was wrong. The game plan that SK inserted on the player group was just a clone of the Storm without the big 3.

    When we played Cronulla he was in NZ and the asst coach took the team, slightly more expnasive game and we win.

    The success of a coach from U8 to NRL, is to implement a strategy that works with the group you have, and recruited, now it is obvious despite the reputation he had coming in, he was unable to set the right game plan for the squad. Whilst we currently have a doesnt really matter attitude, the spread of the ball and options we have is so much different to what we played up to round 20.

    I guess the real question as we move forward will be how we are structured under the new coach, what was that Chinese curse "may you live in interesting times"

    We might have got belted all year long because we're still not playing any defence!! I reckon maybe 2-3 more wins if we'd pegged the ball around?

    Thing worth noting is that "offloading" is not the holy grail that so many on this forum make it out to be.
    We just crushed the Roosters, who offloaded 13 times to our 6.
    The week before, in scoring 26 against the Tigers, we offloaded just 7 times.
    We got 13 away against Brisbane, and had 14 the week before against Melbourne

    And under Kearney's oversight we had 20 offloads against Newcastle a few weeks prior to that (in a 20-12 loss).


    Playing expansive footy is NOT synonymous with offloading the ball. The 2 can be mutually exclusive in a particular game of footy.

    What IS clear is that we are playing a more attacking brand of footy since SK's demise. And one might not be shocked considering Brad Arthur was the 'attacking coach' under Kearney. Shock horror, he's putting all his eggs in the attacking basket now that he's got full control.
    And we're scoring points with just 6 offloads (vs Roosters if you're slow and didn't pick it up before).

    I agree with all of that, because we went crazy with the offloads in 09 some people on here seem to think that is the only way to play. I must admit i have enjoyed watching us play much more the last month. Shame about the defence though :( But that is something that is very fixable.

    I'm happy we've finally starting offloading and winning games.

    The games we won were because the other teams were down on form.

    Nothing to do with offloading.

    Accordingly, those teams lost their games rather than we won them.

    We have lost more games to sides down on form. Its just that we have improved (remarkably) our offence in recent times. We get our D in order, then we are in another hemisphere circa 09

    The more you offload the more you win.

    Everybody knows that.

    It must be true, otherwise you might've been right on that one - and we couldn't have that now!
