7 minutes to go and Ash Lindsay is taking it up twice in a set, with a prop getting it on the last tackle. It's like we've got no offensive structure or set moves. Is it the players or is it the coaching? If we can't barge or scoot over from 5 yards we don't score.
You can almost predict a set:
Tackle 1: winger scoot
Tackle 2: fullback scoot
Tackle 3: inside ball to Walton
Tackle 4: Ash Lindsay onto a short ball/slow looping pass to a second rower out wide
Tackle 5: drive by prop
We are incredibly boring to watch, even when we are winning. With the exception of Johnson and Flanaghan (apart from the obcession with scooting 5 yards out), and occasionally when Geeenwood and Campbell have the ball. Too much structure and caution, no spark and no invention.
The sad thing is, apart from the first 10 minutes when they looked ultra sharp, I don't think the eagles played particularly well either, and made just as many errors. The key is they found a way to win.
We are in the top 4, and with a lesser budget than the clubs around us, so we should be content. However, this group of players have got the ability I think to be more than that.
