Settle down tigerFFS we miss 2 goals we lose 4 points.
We let in 3 very soft tries and gift them a minimum of 12 points but due to them scoring closer to the posts we magnify that to 18 points.
In your logic if we are 4 behind with a penalty in their red zone and the whistle has blown you'd want to kick a goal because you value a goal more than a try.
You try to rationalise the final score as being only a points differential without giving any thought to what happened during the game.
If we kicked 9 penalties out of 10 shots for 18 points and the opposition scored 5 tries and no conversions for 20 points you would still be bagging our goal kicker.
EDIT: You'd even bag him if the one we missed was 50 out, into the breeze from the sideline and hit the cross bar and upright and bounced back.
I’m just stating facts
Yes they did score soft tries
The defence is definitely a work in progress
We scored 5 tries and should’ve won on merit
I’m not a fanatic on goalkickers yet they do win games
Remember Hasim, Halligan,Sowie, etc
Today Cleary, Croker,Garrick, Reynolds and many many more would’ve kicked at least one of those when pressure is on
That’s what they get the big bucks for
Even Duges kicked a clutch goal in the semi and he was a shit kicker.
Too many games now Lomax could’ve been a hero but it’s just not in him.
I’d love for him to prove me wrong one day
Uncle Wayne used to get criticism when he coached us for taking the two yet how many tight games did we win with him
I repeat good goalkickers win games
