Discussion in 'NRL' started by Renowned League Expert, Mar 13, 2015.
So the Roosters have received 9 penalties or more in 3 of their last 7 games. The silence in here from the conspiracy theorists is defending.
Can we bring back the stats showing how long since a team has received 8 penalties or more?
If anything it has proved the conspiracy theorists right.
As soon as the article came out the refs have been a lot more beneficial in our favour, it's shown how easily they're influenced.
7 of the 8 teams that have played so far this weekend have received 8 or more penalties.
And we still lost the count last night!l
Also there are only 3 teams who have received less penalties than us this year. 2 of them are still yet to play. Shows how far behind we were that started this thread in the first place.
It makes sense of course that the most dominant team, the one who has scored more points than any other team has just about received the fewest penalties.
And we are still the 7th most penalised team. Yep we are being looked after hahaha
This is the number of times each team has received 8 or more penalties this year
Panthers 13 times
Minor premiers 3
Ever since that article came out, its like a switch was flicked in NRL referees' heads and we've got a fair run.
Coincidentally we have yet to lose a game since this article was released as well :lol:
Thought I’d use the bye round to take another look into the Roosters alleged tactic of intentionally giving penalties away on our line in order to reset our defence. I did this a few years back on this same thread.
This is based on Penalties conceded by Roosters in 2019. The meters are from Roosters tryline.
72 penalties conceded in 11 games.
37 in opposition half
35 in own half
17 penalties conceded inside our own 10m defending our line at an average of 1.54 per game.
3 games where they gave away no penalties inside their 10m (Broncos, Dragons, Tigers)
3 games where they gave away 1 penalty inside their 10m (Souths, Manly, Sharks)
2 games where they gave away 2 penalties inside their 10m (Eels, Knights)
2 games where they gave away 3 penalties inside their 10m (Storm, Raiders)
1 game where they gave away 4 penalties inside their 10m (Broncos round 10)
Only twice have they conceded consecutive penalties within their own 10m (v Storm 3 pens between 16th and 17thminute) (v Broncos 2 pens between 3rd & 4th minute)
Breakdown of penalties by field position
0-25m – 23 penalties
25-50m – 12 penalties
50-75m – 16 penalties
75-100m – 21 penalties
Draw your own conclusions.
Worth noting a few of those penalties in our own quarter have been escorts, accidental offside etc.
5 x offside, 3 x escorts, 6 x slow peel/holding/lying in ruck, 1 x dangerous tackle, 1 x strip, 1 x professional foul
its not the number of penalties or the type.
But when they are given during the game.
the square up penalties once the game has gone will distort the facts
But accidentally offside is not a penalty
As I've said before, Nick needs to throw more birthday parties for refs. Or take them golfing. Or show them his paper bag collection.
Reading into those stats, it seems the Roosters need to sign more representative players before June 30.
