The referee allowed the Cowboys far far too long in the tackle. Too long grappling us. Second attempts. Borderline flops who then slowed it right down. Worst I have seen against us this year. Throw the Walsh
errors on the back of that and we were screwed. Their best was always going to be better than our best without any referee assistance.
Kasey Badger is so random in the Bunker as if she is drunk. She has interpretations so out of whack.
Yeah i also felt he had 2 speeds for them and us in clearing the ruck, also thought he was letting the cowgirls leave way early getting off their line and catching us pretty much the same time our runners we're getting the ball.
Dont think we do ourselves any favours in that regard tho, there was lots of comments in the match thread of how come we always struggle against a fast moving D. Well....
1. Stop running 1 out!.....take support runners to take the focus off just the ball carrier
2. Related to above.......spread the ball!.......the D then cant gang tackle the ball carrier.
3. 1st receiver stand wide off the ruck!.......get wider of the A and B defenders moving the defence then ususally 1 extra pass is where the yards are made.
4. Run from dummyhalf more! Change it up, keep them guessing, constantly we we're giving just 1 off the ruck lining up like a crash test dummy and getting belted
Frustrating seeing none of this happen to counter what the opposition is doing.......our coaches seem so hell bent in whatever their game plan is dosent appear to be any change up at all.
