I agree on all your points + I think Suli in for Parker, not Harper. Harper is a better all around player.

How the Sea Eagles can beat the Rabbitohs

Backs a high error rate is good as it’s late in the set so it means trying things. Forwards less so as it’s typically early in the set.

So Turbo having a high error-rate =/= Schuster having one.

Des Hasler's Schuster problem

I agree long-term he’s better than Siro.

But in a knock out finals series where possession is a major issue and set completion is critical?

I’d be looking to get 1-2 errors per match out of the side. With Siro you get that, and might get to end of sets where repeats can be forced and Turbo gets space to do his thing.

You’re right, but it isn’t even close in this instance. Given Manly’s defence isn’t the BEST in the league in finals football you need to avoid giving away territory, as territory creates tries. At the very least you want a net positive on the stats front.

The challenge is his stats (which need to improve).

0.44 try assists + 0.11 tries + 0.44 linebreaks to 1.11 errors per game for Schuster. Your net is -0.12.

You don’t beat the game presence with the errors right now; and in second row those errors cost you mid-set as well.

0.17 try assists + 0.17 tries + 0.28 linebreaks to 0.39 errors per game for Sironen. Your net is +0.23. It’s quite a significant difference when you look at it that way, and could essentially be a +12 point difference between teams.

It’s not may or may not have done. He was charged and convicted by the ICC.

Time to put Steve Smith in perspective
