Most times it's not about a lack of execution but structural flaws in attacking design that get found out when an opposing defence is well structured and composed. In othe words you did execute but it was flawed to begin with. Scoring 34 points in one half does not mean using those same plays against another team and not getting the same result is about execution. As i've stated before our attack will defeat 80-90% of teams but there are major line running flaws and a lack of variation up the middle with halves and forwards that show up against well drilled teams. It does appear during the Doggies game that Tooves is trying to address some of these issues but they should have been looked at earlier in the season---even last season. I was just glad last year we did not face a few teams come semi final and GF time as under pressure there was a big chance with certain teams we might be showed up again attacking wise. I always fear our attack at night on heavy tracks----yes not having Stewart does not help but lets not relate our issues and comparing them to the Storm(both missing F/Backs so that must be the reason---simplistic way of looking at an issue). Even Bellamy admits it's more lazy attack and not hitting lines at the right time that is the major issue. If your attack is useless minus one player it shows a lack of variation which to be honest most NRL attacks suffer. Most NRL attacking structures are carbon copies of each other with Melb leading the design process Manly tweaking it and adding their own structures and most of the rest following. The lead runner play on the right edge with Harrison could be varied slightly with having another back rower running an under play at the exact same time. DCE shows the ball to the lead outside runner but holds it back to the under runner to keep the inside defence honest before setting up the Stewart play later on. Glen in 08 with Lyon at 5/8 was more a threat up the middle and hole running---many times he would cut back inside and find a hole or hit an outside hole---i would like him to ease back slightly on the ball playing and be more aggressive in the red zone. Foran running flat and hard up the middle early on in the game lacked any science behind it. Yes it was direct which is what we need but a bit of class with an early inward step to halt the defence and having a player running off his outside hip would be more dangerous all at pace. Forwards and halves need to use more footwork up the middle drawing and halting defenders. Watmough caught a tired and flat footed Pritchard with a little footwork and holding the ball out the front making it easy for King to run a good line--- you need to get defenders flat footed or being sucked into the ball player otherwise it's too hard to hole run against a composed defence line. Too many passive second man plays on lazy Auto Pilot not offering much anywhere on the field and not enough genuine flat runners up the middle following through on some footwork from a half or forward--- standing and passing is not enough.
