I’m glad someone bought that up. Kicking stats without context are pretty much the most useless stat there is.
If you score a try off every set your kick meters will be terrible.

Shit, imagine how grumpy the kick metres expert would be if that happened. Sack them all would be the only possible call.

We were down on kicking metres right through the first half. Their kickers were keeping them in the game.

Easy, go top the game and watch the stats on your phone and stop watching blue movies with an ugly bastard as the star.:rolleyes:

The only things it shows is completing sets, which means you are controlling the game, if you have large kick metres with little errors and conversely the other team has huge errors, that should mean you are spending a lot of time in their red zone, but if you are not scoring it is pointless. Something we need to work on next year is our options in the red zone, we are getting so many chances but we generally try Fusitua, try a short ball, then put in what is not SJs strong point, a bomb to Fusitua. When green or lino place them its a bit better. but really we need to work on set plays, players in motion, reverse angles etc.

So yep, it can mean SFA

So we rolled the dice and played our best team and tried to finish higher than 8th. The other alternative would have been to rest 3-4 key players.

I am trying to evaluate if trying to win against Canberra gained or lost us anything given we didn't move up the table.

Gavet got injured during training
Mannering is out for what looks like 2-3 weeks minimum. But he was always going to play whether we or not we put a weaker side. Likewise Gavet we probably would have played him.
Luke got smoked with a head high tackle but returned to the match. So maybe he is ok.
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck had his left ankle heavily strapped late in the game but finished the match.

We are a bit worse for wear after the game but came through it ok. Warriors got a bit of luck.

We are out of luck either way. We cant get St George and Broncos are hot and panthers are on fire. Damned if you do. Really need to play like Broncos are now, more OFFENSE.

If a team is making no errors and had high kick meters it means they are being dominated and aren’t making any meters in their sets.

Form going into finals is critical for a teams confidence. Our form is one of the best after correcting embarrassing losses. So I think despite your valid points I think it was worth it. It also gave us a CHANCE at a home final. Was not to be.

I think Broncos got off light with the mix up with Panthers being tied, Broncos finishing 6th get the easier red V than the mighty warriors. But either way broncos or panthers im not confident, especially panthers with maloney and cleary, they destroyed us without them both and 3 other players.

yes that is another scenario. but mine still stands. teams who dont score, but have high completion rates, as does the opposition get high kick metres.

If a team is only making 30-40m per complete set then I would consider them being dominated.

i meant both sides. and yes dominated. which is how you end up with high kick metres on both sides.

if we talking just one side then obviously its because one team is crap.
