- Ramien has long been a destructive ball-carrier and is averaging 4.5 tackle breaks and 117 running metres per game. Notably, he has handed out five try assists in seven games this season after distributing only eight in the 74 games he played before Round 1.
Wow.

Exactly. While it wasn't enough to win the game, other teams may do this that aren't that far behind or at the start of the games. This is why I posted earlier that I hoped Fitz has a plan B or C.
But we never really tested that, did we? We always went to the right.

It's a myth anyway. I literally counted them one game when the whinging was at its peak and Johnson had way more than Chad.

It's probably more to do with the coach telling the halfback "don't get tackled in situation x" than the halfback himself. Under Fitz it seems Moylan and Hynes are quite happy to take a tackle and get a quick play the ball rather than dish it off to some unsuspecting forward who was hoping for a 15 second breather.
AKA the hospital pass...

Just looking at our upcoming draw
Rnd 8 Broncos (a)
Rnd 9 Warriors (h)
Rnd 10 Raiders (Magic)
Rnd 11 Titans (a)
Rnd 12 Roosters (h)
Rnd 13 BYE
Rnd 14 Warriors (a)
Rnd 15 Titans (Coffs)
Rnd 16 Bulldogs (a)
Rnd 17 Melb (h)
Rnd 18 Cowboys (a)
RND 19 Panthers (a)

Some vwry winnable games there.
We 'should' win rounds 8-11.
Roosters in round 12 is a good test - although theyre not firing atm
Then its the bye followed by 3 more winnable games before we get Melb followed by Panthers 2 weeks later.

Real chance for us to get some wins on the board, build some momentum before we tackle the 'top teams' again.
Exciting times

We play Storm during Soo. They will have their players out

Storm likely missing Pap, Coates, Munster, Grant & Kafusi (cant think of anyone else)
We'd be (possibly)without Finucane, Talakai and Hynes.

Not sure FInucane will get picked unless he plays prop. They'll want to squeeze Murray and Yeo both in and possibly Radley on the bench.

I don't think Finucane makes origin unless there are a few injuries. Haas and Paulo likely start. Then there are guys like RCG, Saifiti, Jurbo all competing for middle minutes. Although they haven't been great, I think Freddy will stick with Jurbo and Saifit which doesn't leave room for Dale.
