Here's a reminder of what happened last season. Note the exact moment the tide turned massively in our favour in the 23rd minute (2:35 into clip). We'll be a lot stronger this time around, without the dead weight at dummy half:Roosters definitely have the edge, particularly and noticeably in the spine.
As I mentioned earlier, Seibs has repeatedly said he thinks a hooker should be an 80 minute player, so this is inline with his usual gameplan. However, he doesn't have a centre on the bench. Which makes me suspect he's more likely to switch Roberts in there at the last minute than Segway.Surely Segeyaro is playing?
Why aren't people listening to you?I'd like to see some kind of game plan specific to beating the chooks like forcing Latrine to make a lot of tackles.
The irony is if we'd had a snappier dummy half than Macca delivering that pass he probably would've made the field goal before getting swamped by defenders and not scored that fantastic try.
Totally agree totally. Also do the same with all their other players.Why aren't people listening to you?
Totally agree and my plan is so simple. Set up your forwards, directly on Mitchell and don't play up the middle. Don't run a single hitup for the first twenty minutes anywhere but at him and even wait for him to regain his feet and get into position! Drive a spike through him and his place in the defensive line. Make him tackle big bastard after big bastard until he's made 25 tackles at least. I know it would leave other defenders fresh and there would be other considerations but it might achieve another benefit other than simply wearing out/ destroying Mitchell.
Gotta love how when Napa KO'd Sims and was sent Gould and co were outraged "it's a headclash blah blah blah accident blah part of the game blah unintentional blah blah blah". This time round he was quiet as a mouse and knew this dickhead had a fucked up "tackling" technique.That was some underwhelming commentary
This is what we need for us to win... Two of their players being sent for 10, some kicks out on the full, and a whole lot of luck.Here's a reminder of what happened last season.
