In Robson's defence he has sent the ball in the right direction for most of our plays.
Unlike the stuff you would see with Nathan Friend and cross eyed Tommy ignoring Johnson
and a set back line for one of their clever plays.
The one thing Robson does right is get the ball to the right people at the right time.
The Warriors first Try was brilliant from Robson, he hit the line and committed the defence then quickly shifted to Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
on the left.
Robson created that try.
The second attempted try (Manu dots it down, the bunker finds a knock on.....sees Robson in support of the ball carrier on the inside (unused).
The Warriors next Try sees Robson take it to the line and feed Kata in a classic out the back door play.....Kata gets tackled in the left corner.....Robson plays link man in a passing movement amd feeds Vete. who draws more defenders to the middle of the park....an offload from Vete sees the Warriors send the ball to the right hand edge....Lolohea scores a no try...ruled an obstruction .
A Minor role from Robson in that one, but he is using runners that hit the advantage line in a structured way to make space on the edges (organizing).
The next two tries have no involvement from Robson.
The Warriors next Try...is off an out the back play that Robson calls for (you can see him scream out for that back line to set for that play)....it works....Aysford and Lolohea confront the Newy left edge with a two on one....that Try was as much Shaun Johnson
as Robson (starting to click)....and the final touch from Ayshford is real quality (He is a great signing).
The Warriors next Try is a simple run around with Robson and Hoffman....Robson shifts left and Manu scores off a Kata pass in the corner.
A concern I had with this side was that we would continue to see Manu's wing ignored....that try gives me more hope than anything the Warriors have constructed this season.
The next Try is Johnson
making mokery of our dislike of his lateral play....the one where he drifts across the field till he scores ala Jason Robinson.
Had to laugh at the 70th minute when Robson made a line break in the middle of the field.....looks left then right and gets tackled....that was a certain try gone begging for a back that could be bothered.
For all the Robson critiques....(justifiable) he is not useless at every thing.
His vision is excellent and his passing is fine.
