That is ultra generous. I'd have us 'bombing' 2 whilst a 3rd (Burton break) is one of those 50/50's.
Jac knocking the pass down was just good defence.There was the pass that JAC knocked down from Crichton to Staines
When Jennings fell into touch with the line wide open.
Edwards got belted taking the tackle with a 2 on 1 outside him
Twice Kikau had someone outside unmarked only to take the tackle or one time drop it
The Burton break was more then 50/50. He was tackled by the fullback. He had support we score under the post.
Do we count Staines into touch off the scrum as a bomb?
The 2 held ups I didn't count but on another day or a lesser defence they are scored.
Then of course the 2 we scored. That is plenty of chances created largly from the halves
So not bad effort that side of the ball. Given who was out
Jac knocking the pass down was just good defence.
Paps was there when jennings fell into touch.
Olam whacked edwards before he even got the chance to look outside.
The burton break came out of nowhere.. youd be very lucky to ever have someone backing up on a play like that as it wasnt a set play and he hit the whole like a rocket out of nowhere.
It boggles my mind you cant admit cleary is soo much better than what was dished up by them tonight. No coincidence that since cleary has been out weve been poor and nsw lost without him? Nsw was full of star players yet couldnt get it done without nath...
Burton kicked it dead a number of times amd just gave melbourne 7 tackle sets. Luai played sideways and it took all the time and oppurtunities away from the outside men.
Youve been right about plenty on here.. you were adamant that nadens best spot was on the wing. I thought his best was centre. Well its proved that wings his spot. He was decent when he moved there tonight. Not having to make crucial tackles and decisions is good. He takes strong carries and adds a bit of spark in attack.
Just not sure why you are to stubborn to admit the importance of nathan and that weve been poor without him.
Yep. Our season could have been dead thanks to the curse if we didnt show a bit of steel defensively.Another positive I have not seen mentioned
No team that has let 50 in has gone on to win the comp .We only let in 37 happy days
Edwards was on the wing at one point in the second halfCritta handled Olam with ease but the problem is Olam should be worried about how he’s going to handle Critta and I doubt he would be given Critta rarely involves himself or gets his hands on the ball when needed. Same could be said for Staines.
Surely Cleary and co. can think of a couple of plays where Critta/Staines are around the middle of the ruck. Or just play Edwards on the wing for a couple of attacking sets per half.
