TIGERS! Fuck that was a great game of footy and maybe we're on our way to being back knocking off a top 4 team. Still, it was very nerve wracking until Moltzen's try sealed it. Got down early to the game and caught the NSW Cup game, had an epic all-in brawl that was started by a guy I know, and ended up with Balmain winning 88-16. Poor scoreboard working double over time.

I'm not going to defend Creagh - I wouldn't have picked him - but he's a better defender than most of those you mentioned. I'm not going to educate you as to why defence is the most important part of the game, particularly in Origin.

Here's a fix, form junkie:

Per game averages for this season right up to Origin 1

NSW back row - 28.0 tackles per game, 3.6 mistackles, 94.3 average metres, 6 line breaks
QLD back row - 34.9 tackles per game, 2.1 mistackles, 103.2 average metres, 7 line breaks

You haven't a clue.

Harrison accumulated the second highest number of tackles of anyone in the game. I believe Myles won MOTM. It was a dud call, it should have gone to Tate. And, yes, I'm awarding a player primarily for his attack. He led QLD in attacking metres + made two line breaks and promoted the team out of the 20. Defensively, he wasn't called upon to do much in the way of tackling, but he diffused bombs at crucial stages of the match.

Hodges was once again atrocious. He's carried over from game 3 last year with those loose arms/jumper grabs. He's in no man's land. As I wrote earlier in this thread, I would have installed Tate as the right centre from the start.

Gallen not being in NSW back row skews that massively but skews the starting props stats as well. He had more tackles, runs and metres than your 2 starting props combined before Origin. Again the problem looking only at stats is that Glenn Stewart played 2 games affected by injuries, again skewing stats. Not saying our players were better or anything, just that stats don't always tell the tale.

I didn't say anything about Myles, i said Thaiday did nothing, Harrison just tackled (nothing wrong with that ftr) and Creagh was awful. I said that tate should've been MOTM, he was by far your best player.

Harrison made more meters than any other QLD forward.

Harrison is a very underrated player, always does his job, he's a million times better than Creagh.

It proves that our game is run by amateurs. The complete disregard for statistical data is embarrassing. In no other game can people argue opinion as fact to the extent that they can in League.

Jennings made Hodges look silly in game 1.

Tim Grant gets named as starting prop in jersey no.8, and Ben Creagh is still picked on the bench.

WHAT THE FUCK RICKY?
