Tipping Comp 2021

Penalties and restarts played a part, especially in our 2nd half.Momentum always has been always will be king. Both Manly and Melbourne took momentum to a new level this week and it was caused by ruthless attack vs struggling defence. Penalties, set restarts and sin bins played almost no part in these dominant periods.
If anything is causing blow outs it's that the majority of clubs are paying overs for mid tier players and this is breaking their salary caps.
Marty got a penalty our way rucking it out off our line.( that could have gone either way).
Lawton got a tackle 5 restart.
Croker got tackle 3 or 4 restart.
There's at least 3 instances where fatigued defences made poor decisions and the momentum compounded, and the tries kept flowing.
Yes momentum has always been king, its never been so hard to reverse like in the current game though.
Clubs have always paid overs for rubbish players.....that's more an indication of the talent pool, and how we develop players, if you happen to believe it's an issue today.
