Yeah I’ve been involved with that stuff briefly a while back with Western Force and someone else here has worked with it quite a bit
Fox, who post those stats and Try Causes, potentially pay to access that kind of stuff too

Do they have game-by-game stats for this? If they do you could probably just re-watch the mini and figure out how they are assigning them. Something like Frawley’s switch of play on the game winner last night would be an interesting one to see. He definitely “contributed” to the try, but it went through another 3-4 sets of hands after him.

It’s also interesting that Radley is high up the list. I wonder if that reflects his involvement as first receiver on shifts.

I haven’t checked if fox publish game stats, I usually use the NRL match centre when checking game by game. They may, which would help answer that question. I cbf trying to check on a mobile.

I noticed Radley too, he plays a big role in a lot of their attack (when playing…)

He could have been worth getting back on after the second sin bin.

Yeh I mentioned in game thread that they should have took Hiroti off, Tracey to Wing and Metcalf to centres. Worked well last week.

I like Metcalf with Trindall that’s a good halves partnership. Heaps of potential. Both are zippy and can kick too

On your point I still didn’t see anything that suggests Tracey is an ok option at centre. Zzzz

The zzz is right, it is getting tiring seeing this comment over and over.

The Ridge!
I wouldn’t describe Metcalf as being hooked. We just needed to get Moylan out there, Luke didn’t really do much wrong.

Seems like we agree on a lot of things tonight Chad!

Happy to see his time in the side continuing to increase.

this is the way I see Metcalf building. expect him to take on too much might not be right for the young fella. I think slowly slowly, good off season and who knows
end of the day agree with others, at that time in the game bringing moylan was a good move.
he ran with the ball well, caused some indecision in the defence. pleasantly surprised.

Yeah I think it was a good decision to get Moylan on the field, especially why we got the one man advantage.

But the game was screaming for Metcalf also why we had the one man advantage, it showed when Katoa made the break and arguably our fastest and only support player was just dragged from the field.

We got a free interchange with Williams because of Felger going on report, maybe we should of just brought Moylan on for him to float around the middle (or Metcalf float) for 10 mins then maybe bring a middle back on for Metcalf when it went back to 13v13. Or as someone said, a good option could of also been put Metcalf Centre, Tracey wing and Hiroti to the tip

Metcalfe was the better player, but Moylan is a six and Trindall is a 7, so it was only ever going to be Metcalfe coming off. It'd be interesting to see Metcalfe next to Moylan... Trindall's game lifted having that leadership and experience next to him

Just give him Moylan contract after next year. I’m sure he won’t mind then

I think at this rate we need to extend him for 1 more year, 2 would be nice.

We then have a great opportunity to view Trindall, Metcalf and Hynes in the halves. If all 3 are incredible you try to find a way to fit them in the starting side, whether that be in the outside backs or lock or whatever.

If that doesn't work, the reality is you try and keep the best 2. It is a good problem to have really. I think you could easily keep him to the end of 23 with a a top 17 spot and a slight upgrade.

Moylan won’t play the whole season. Unfortunately I don’t think his hammy will handle it.
Metcalf will get his time to shine.
