NRL Grand Final.


Recommended Posts


Despite the best efforts of the commentary to talk up the possibility of 2nd half Parra come back, this one feels done and dusted.

 

Obvs things can change very quickly with a sin bin or HIA, but Penrith just look too good.

After all that pressure it was two poor defensive plays in the end that led to two of the tries.

For the Crichton try, Lane decided to make contact with Cleary after he passed the ball and so couldn't continue the shift in defence and left the gap for the drop off play.

For the Sorensen score, Gutherson was stood short side on tackle 5 and then actually went up in defence.  No full back in play on tackle 5 in a Grand Final is very poor.

For all that, it is the pace that the Panthers play and the structure that Cleary, Yeo and Koroisau give them that makes all the difference.

I noticed in the previous goal line defensive set that Gutho was gassed trying to stretch himself across the pitch from a play the ball in the defensive left corner.
