This is a coaching fix. Its bat **** crazy that Nicho does this. Last night he wanted to be 5/8 and half at the same time. was he filling a void left by tricky.
I just hope Nicho shows more faith in Trindall next season to allow Tricky to take some pressure off of Nicho.
I don’t think this is necessarily Fitz’s game plan but maybe more so Nicho believing as the senior half he needs to be the more dominant half and demands the play more.
Brailey also needs to have better game awareness at times and the courage to overrule/overlook Nicho when he thinks we are better going to Tricky
Yeah I know what you mean mate.Thats my point. When they play together as team mates they can score, when Nicho goes rogue by himself and does everything - nothing ever happens apart from full blown adhd.
Oh our nine screwed the pooch on two tries .. beggingIt was costly, but not a reason why we lost. I wouldn't say absent, tonight was all about Hynes.
But I'm no way saying that Tricky can excuse himself, just looked like the game plan was about Nicho getting the ball and doing something with it.
Also doesn't help when our nine is incompetent aswell.
Fitz has made comments in pressers about it. So I would imagine it does get raised.It's happened way too often, the coach obviously has no issue with it which is baffling.
I think the coach doesn’t like the times he gets scattered trying to make things happen from our own half, forcing passes etcFitz has made comments in pressers about it. So I would imagine it does get raised.
Nicho probably just gets white line fever and wants to always compete which means he sometimes “forgets” those conversations with the coach .
Which isn’t necessarily always a bad thing but sometimes less is more and Nicho needs to learn that part of the game.
but I’m not in the rooms so who really knows apart from them and the team
‘Great year’ feels very generous. Maybe in the context of this was his first year as a 1st choice in the halves pairing. For a new starter he was pretty good. For an NRL half he was far from great. Good signs though.Great year overall from Tricky.
Hypothetical for the off-season (can't believe we're there already):
Who do we see Dykes challenging most - Trindall or Kennedy?
Sometimes one person just is in position to be first receiver and the other is in position to be second. They are a halves in partnership, not pigeon holed into set, concrete roles.Yep, pretty sure Trindall was 7 and Hynes 6 on the Ronnie try
