But I love short films.
Infortunately we created another one. Norman's short kicking game created a lot of repeat sets. Without those repeat sets we may have won even fewer games.
Nah, mate. I'll remember this prediction and I'll taunt you for years over it.
The prediction was made before Norman defected, and threw our season into disarray, so...
Most of those repeat sets will be replaced by another kicker. Possibly all of them will be replaced if the other kickers improve.
Maybe we won’t need so many repeat sets if we just score the first time around.
Or if we cant score what is the point of the repeat set anyhow?
What we need is a ratio. How many forced drop out from kicks did Norman get per attempt vs Moses. Sure he had 4 or 5 more but if he had 2 x the attempts then it says what?
More importantly, what did we do with the ball in those repeat sets?
Agree with everything said in this post.
My question to this is - what is Gutherson's best position?
If Parra could get M.Jennings off their books (opportunity looks gone now) and sign a half decent center, I have the Eels in my 8. I do still think there is some comings and goings to be had before the season gets underway.
I think his ratio was better but the kicks rarely led to real scoring chances. Occasionally we trapped someone in goal but it's like Norman was putting kicks in when he saw an opportunity to get them in goal, and didn't care if any of our players could get to them.
Mennings is still a quality centre. But his preparation this year was obviously very poor. I’d say being off contract he will make more effort in his preparation, which will translate to improved performances on the field.
Put a fork in him. Hes done.
If he was a horse he’d be on his way to the glue factory.
He’s far from done. He’ll do well in 2019.
Even @hineyrulz will reluctantly accept that he has a good year (but say that it only happened because he was playing for a contract).
Jamie Soward on NRL.com has predicted us to finish with another wooden for 2019.
Plus having a child may settle him
What a trackhead
Well he can’t play any worse.
Onwards and upwards!
I don't think we will get the spoon. Primarily for the reason that I think if that looked likely we would probably sack the coach and will get a small immediate rise through a new coach.
Having said that, we're probably more likely than at least 12 or 13 others to finish that low.
