You'd think so wouldnt you? Not sure why that hasnt been counted but NRLStats have their own guidelines and rules for collating their stats. Im not about to fiddle with them. I will email them and ask about the Fish error...When Fish cocked up the bomb and the Cows scored isn;t that an error ?
Bastards making me eat my words but he sure has been living up to his nickname, BIG BULL! I didnt see the need to re-sign him as I felt he was doing no more then someone like Suaia Matagi who we would be getting for much cheaper. Based on his last 2 performances he's looking like he's going to be our best prop of the season.Very well done, thanks.
Lillyman is a beast, I've never seen him as a big impact forward but there's no doubt about his work rate when you see those stats. I've always thought he would be the prop to go for my 'big prop' but he's proving me wrong
All the props have been outstanding- rapiras made more tackles than mannering
Huge improvement this week with the overall game stats between round to round. Last week we only had 3 green positives. We made more runs, less tackles and less errors. This week has seen us change that to 9 positives and 1 draw in line breaks. Interestingly we are down on offloads which has been the hallmark of our offence. Large part due to Feleti Mateo not playing in the Tigers game and the possession tactic during the wet game in Townsville. Early days yet but it maybe no coincidence that a safer game protecting the ball may actually work in our favour…
Mannering's defensive workrate is down because teams see more potential profit from attacking the Fish edge than the Manu edge.
And attacking workrate perhaps down as Tomkins also favours the Fish side.
He is certainly putting more into the tackles that he does make. When he drops them they stay down, I love his technique.That's certainly one possibility, but even so, his numbers seem to be quite a bit down on normal, which I wouldn't solely attribute to sides focusing their attack on our right edge.
