What I found most alarming was that our attack in the second half pretty much devolved back to what we had gotten used to the last 2-3 years. We played the entire half trying to attack straight through the middle and the panthers found it easy to number up and limit our metres.
I thought it was more due to the dropped balls in play 1 or 2. We kept giving back possession and was either gassed when it was time to attack or we dropped the ball play 1 or 2. Probably was trying to hold possession and complete a set or two in a row before going back to expansive attacking footy.
