My opinion is we don’t lock up the ball. All those offloads we allow cause us to get tired… which leads to the missed tacklesI think they go about counting how many tackles they have already done and say to themselves, I've done my share so the next ones his. Beats me Denis! I guess like most of the bottom 8 teams, defence and the lack of it is a big issue. All players in the comp would have been doing defence drills all of their football life. I just wonder what our coaches are not doing.
Surely they can look at videos of games played by Penrith and Storm for example to see how they get their players to defend. Put into practise the things that they learn and with the proper techniques and just follow the "leaders". To me it shouldn't be so hard, but then again there is tackling and there is other tackling - being many missed and all players have one or two or several in games. It's the ones that are missed that causes consternation.
