Last year Manly conceded 754 points. With two rounds left we have conceded 592. We are conceding on average 27 points a game against 31.3 last year. In the first part of the season it was less than 20. Defence is a lot about commitment, aggression, confidence and determination. Also helps when you are scoring points, getting good field position and putting them under pressure. Against the Sharks they scored 4 times from the set after the kickoff and were making up to 70 metres a set. I would love to see stats about how many line dropouts we have had compared to how many we have forced.
