Just watched the Storm v Warriors game(only watched parts of the game mainly back end of each half last week) and if the Warriors play as polished,disciplined and maintaining the same intensity for long periods they will probably have our measure.(big ask though to do it twice) One out forward runs which we have been guilty of at times this year will not cut it---going two out or a half sliding across using under plays is the bare minimum---one out flat forward plays are ok off the back of a quick play the ball though. I think we should be going wide early to commit defenders to protect outside spot players in numbers before hitting up the middle.(the opposite to what normally happens) Going wide early is for two reasons----one it offers softer yardage gains and two opens up the compressed middle for more yardage gains and explosive middle runners hitting holes. The risk is we fall overly into our side ways running go forward that i'm not a fan of so it's got to be direct, crisp sharp spreads not forwards running sideways and being hit on the inside hip with a dominant tackle. The Warriors go forward was simple, direct and sharp---mixed in with a few one out under plays to change direction and the occasional 2 out pass. The parts of the game i watched last week showed more offloads and spreads in the back end of each half which was not a true indicator of their style against the Storm---the performance was more polished and composed than i originally thought---i was impressed with what i saw but more impressed this time around. We can still win but i'm more convinced now we need to put on points early to make them question their beliefs or hope fatigue plays a factor. Manu comes up and in early we can actually shape to put the sweeping play for Stewart and not use him bringing Manu in then hitting the short side quickly the next play with a flat running G.Stewart who can also mix it up with ball playing. Or set up for a spread and kick early in the count keeping Manu on the back foot before unleashing the second man plays. If we can gain good field position in attack i'm sure we can put points on as the Warriors outside defenders can easily get isolated--- i'm more worried about getting good field position consistently through out the game.
