I am going to jump to the defence (pardon the pun) of Killer and Skivvy. It is easy to assume that when a player runs past one of these two guys to score, it must be their fault right? not necessarily. In every match of football there is a winning team and a losing team. Of all the winning sides I have watched over the years, I can't remember their centres consistently covering a patch of 30m and being asked to make "one on one" try saving tackle after try saving tackle across the course of 80 minutes. You could see the space on the fringes on the television before the ball had even left the ruck. We got pumped up the middle and that is why there was so much space on the fringes. It's not black and white for Killer and Skivvy. They could look like genius defenders next week if the forwards hold there own in the middle, because they will be asked to cover a much smaller space and they can herd the opposition player out of room. In the first half, Killer made a great one on one tackle on Tim Simona that prevented a try, but it's impossible for him to do that across the course of a match. I am not saying either of these guys never make poor reads, but watching them get smoked on Monday Night had more to do with our defence being stretched in the middle, than the impending retirement of these two legends.
