One thing Australian halves are raised to do is kick a ball , it's a central feature of the game down there with such good defences . When you have that turbo boot you got to use it . It would be a crying shame if we only seen it in a defensive capacity taking drop outs ! He should be taking touch kicks , 40/20s , bombs and all our long in play kicking . People tell us he can be a demon goal kicker to so will we see that ? Even he plays centre he can be positioned on last play . With Luptons short finesse kicks and Connors muscle kicks its a decent mix if you utilise it . You can control a game , have more attacking threat and make things a hell of a lot easier alround with a good boot .

It wasn't only the kicking distance that we queried on Sunday it was when to actually kick.    In the first half with a strong wind behind us we never once tried for a 40/20 and there were many times when both their wingers were up in the line and the full-back in the centre of the field.   Instead we continued to batter our way out of our own 40 and then kicking from the halfway line.    All the forward battering must catch up with some lads by the end and things like this is where we need to be a bit smarter.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

And again we didn't go for goal right in front ... Add the first missed conversion which should have been a gimme and its small margins isn't it ? A quality kicker / goal kicker who pings them from everywhere in a tight league is gold.

Hi all,

 

Please do not respond to such obvious trolls, it makes deleting all their posts a more time consuming process rather than the "delete everything" option I just hit for the troll.  Please use the report button instead.


I never understand why people bother with that as they simply have wasted all of that time and effort just to see it deleted by one click of a moderator's control panel.

 

Thanks,

CKN

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Totally agree, when you've got the pace of Miller and Calderwood seems such an obvious tactic to employ? To us anyhow.
