Think Gal overplayed his hand a little to much last night.The ball needed to spend more time in the backs,insteadd of the usual 4 or so hit ups then spread.
The Titan's backs did the damage in the win.The Sharks look dangerous when Holmes,Feki,Chad and BBQs were involved.
You can probably thank Danny Weidler for him getting out of the NRL fishbowl.
Just get rid of the wrestle, apart from not being a good look,it can create injuries, and is not a tackle as intended, when 3-4 players are defending on one man.
No more than two in tackle,and more emphasis on one on one tackling ,below the chest specifically. it will mean ,more offloads, which means more flow in the game, thus more of a spectacle.
I would have thought there was plenty r of contests for the ball,with the number of high kicks employed in the game.Funny usually about 3 or 4 players trying to grab the pill out of mid air.
The number of grubber kicks, attempted intercepts,one on one strips which used be used more often, bundling players into touch or tackling them in the in goal, all have the effect of ball contests.
it's a nonsense for anyone to suggest there are no contests for the ball in rugby league.Of course there could be more, but who in their right mind wants repeat scrums, scrappy digging for the ball in a PTB.
Whoever invented the scrum needs capital punishments dog's breakfast, thus should be over and done with like a bad smell.
The ball in rugby league is in play most of the time, it's no where near a perfect sport bunker check, refs check, but played at its flowing and or intense best ,is up there as an entertainment vehicle.
The touchdowns by wingers in rugby league with barely cms to spare ,with their bodies not only mid air but over the side or goal lines, shows athletic skills worthy of any sport's best.
The sin bin needs to be used more often,especailly with the constant infringements near a defenders' goal line.And third man in during melees,need 10 minutes in the bin, every time.
