    its very interesting now to look at metres gained and time played. Backs up what most have thought - poor bench rotation.

    Player, metres, minutes, metres/minute
    Mason, 174, 53, 3.3
    Kite, 97, 32, 3.0
    Hoffman, 101, 37, 2.7
    Bailey, 99, 48, 2.1
    Bird, 67, 33, 2.0
    Ryan, 122, 80, 1.5
    White, 40, 27, 1.5
    Hindmarsh, 64, 57, 1.1
    Simpson, 45, 43, 1.0

    and just for comparison
    Civo, 151, 53, 2.8
    Price, 131, 61, 2.1

    This leaves me with one question. Why the hell did kite get just 32 minutes?

    Not rated by the coach!!!! Seems that there are frictions between selector and coach. Coach should be able to pick the team - he lives and dies on the results.

    Kite just doesn't look like he runs hard. That probably throws murry off. Where if you look at his stats he is actually ripping in and doing damage. Hes not the mason type runner so its not obvious to notice.

    He's one hell of a defender and IMO murry needs to go before game 3.

    Lets face it guys. thurston and bowen make murry 'look' like a good coach.

    The metres per mintue is a rubbish stat imo. Possession swings during a game, for a 10 minute period Player A might get 6 mins on attack, so a better chance at lifting stats, wheras player B comes on for 10, and has 4 mins in attack, so less opportunity

    But yeah, Murray should depart. 1 question, has Sheens ever coached Origin ?

    I think Sheens needs a team to be together a while.. he is a structured coach and takes time with a team.

    NSW don't need a "tactical" coach.... maybe someone with a little bit of smarts.. but they mainly need someone who is passionate and intense.. this is why NSw have had success under Stuart and Gould.

    Don't select a current NRL coach either... I think they should go with someone like Brad Fittler or Brett Kenny.. and have Geyer, Carroll, Harragon, Toovey etc to go into camp with them and stick a rocket up the poofs.
