    The stats have me flummoxed. It alleges the only Manly back that made a hit-up against Souffs was Williamarmy. I thought a 'hit-up' was a player who took the ball from dummy half and, basically, got tackled without passing.
    Jorge does this numerous times every match to help out weary forwards. Tom also is doing this, and Jamie.
    Can anybody explain how this stat is arrived at?
    Also, the metres gained. Does a fullback/winger get credited with returning a kick from where he catches the ball, as I imagine, which makes this stat meaningless as well.

    One set of six, early in the game, I think it went both centres and both wingers did the first 4 hit ups of that set, then Buhrer before we kicked.

    What stats are you reading from ? The NRL site calls them AR (all runs) which I take as hit ups, wiliame had 15.

    As far as I can tell a hit up is a mindless run up the guts with no intention of passing the ball.

    I thought a hit up was "what's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this ?"

    We did that late too. Think it was like Tom, Jorge, Williame, Wright and Lyon kicked it. Forwards were blowing so the backs were straight in.

    No. That's to hit on.

    A hit up is what junkies do.

    No, that is shoot up. Hit up is asking your mate for a loan.

    No, to ask for a loan is to put the bite on your mate. You can also crash at someone's house. lol

    Man, those rodeo cowboys must use a lot of "horse".

    They chute up all the time!
