Always interesting to read these sorts of stats mate, cheers.

Mate you winner if there's a corrosion that can be drawn between unavailable player value and season results. Most teams deal with it to varying degrees, but maybe there's a tipping point where the value starts to be a key factor.

If you've got a spare minute that is mate. Cheers.

This took a bit longer than I had hoped it would, the most time consuming bit was just checking how many games each **** had played
Also a pain in the arse but Panthers don't actually have 5 players in the DT top 100 list, they only have 2. So they don't fit into what I worked out.
Below is ladder position (current) ranked by amount of games played by their top 5 paid players (confused a bit by some players switching teams, I held them against their original team ie if you played 10 for original team and 4 for new team your total is still 10) so this is all very inaccurate, but a rough idea.

Storm 6th
Panthers ??
Rabbits 1st
Seagles 2nd
Eels 3rd
Roosters 7th
Knights 13th
Sharks 15th
Raiders 9th
Titans 4th
Warriors 14th
Dragons 5th
Tigers 8th
Cowboys 10th
Broncos 12th
Bulldogs 11th

So I guess we have a good excuse to feel kind of hard done by here, especially as none of our absences are even SOO
With only Moylan able to suit up for next round we actually probably get worse still than all other sides

% of cap taken up by top 5 is lead by Dragons, Sea Eagles, Sharks, Rabbitohs (the only four clubs with 4 million plus tied up in top 5)
Broncos, Bulldogs, Knights, Tigers have least tied up in top 5 (Broncos lowest, less than 3.1mil)

I still harbour some suspicions that he was covering up for someone with this. No proof at all mind you but I just have this feeling.

He said as part of the post match presser that part of his reasoning was that Trindall missed a similar kick earlier.

Not kicking Trindall (I'd probably miss), but backs up what you're saying

A couple of interesting things here I reckon. Looks like some of the better performing clubs somehow spread their cap better than others, because they're still had a good number of players out at times.
Feels like we're overperforming and the Tigers are underperforming. The tigers really need more or of the players they sort their money on.

edit: just fixed a mistake which improved the warriors a bit and pushed some other teams under them. Knights data is also wrong as they only have 4 players in my list instead of 5, if their 5th player has played 15+ games it starts to improve them on list quite a bit.

I should also note it accounts for overall value of top 5 vs games played so if you have spent more on your top 5 than a team whose own cheaper top 5 has played similar number of games you will still score worse
The ranking = money on the park. For example Sea Eagles have the most expensive top 5 but they are on park 7th most amount of the time, they end up in 2nd. Eels are 9th for money spent on top 5 but they have played the most games.

Ranking purely by games played (counting down the current nrl ladder) is 6 ?? 2 7 1 8 14 15(us) 4 3 11 8 5 10 12 12

And that was a piss weak excuse to not have the shot.

Either way, Woods has the final say as he is the one out on the field.
Hannay may or may not have called it from the sideline, but ultimately Woods (with all of his experience) should have made/ over seen/ overridden the final call. Gal would have!

Not just Gal but most Captains worth a damn.

McInnes would
Finucane would
Graham would

So it shouldn't happen again, though let's hope Fitz doesn't reject the 2 points either.
