Total drop outs: 15
Short drop out attempts: 15
How often they go short: 100 per cent
Successful short drop outs: 3
Success rate: 20 per cent
The Eels are committed to the cause. On all 15 of their drop outs they’ve gone short, never wavering from the NRL’s newest craze. You’ve got to commend them for sticking to their guns, but it’s actually only yielded a result on three occasions. That accounts to 20 per cent of the time, the same success rate as the Knights.



Do you think we could mix it up to keep the opposition in two minds. Sad really 😞

Given we have tall timber like Lane, and Matto, in the side, I'm flabbergasted as to why we are so bad at this.

I'm a fan of kicking long - make them run more, and get more tired.

We were doing this before they changed the rules.

One of them was with 10 to go when up 28-18 against Manly in round 3.

Corey Waddell scored 3 tackles later.

The reason I remember it was a dumb move at the time when up by 10 with 10 mins to go.

And gave a Manly a late sniff in a tight game.
Thats dumb.

Of course it’s the coaches job to get the ball from the drop out. Makes perfect sense…
