Noticed a big improvement in recent games with the Seaeagles attack. At times through the season there was at times too much sideways movement & general crabbing. The 30 point demolition on Souths had quality tries out wide, but they actually ALL started with direct running & winning the ruck area. The execution & timing has improved on the back of a simple direct approach, giving the classy outside backs the time & space to score points with ease. Some will argue we scored 0 against Roosters but the fact is we were held up inches from the line on 4 - 5 occasions, made 3 line breaks to nil, no Snake Stewart, ball knocked down when Lyon was going over off a scrum 5m out & it was rated the most defensive game witnessed in the past decade by many. Lawrence has led this, with Choc lifting tempo & Gift also now punching direct, with Rose having absolutely outstanding carries...straight & hard. The wingers have also lifted in this area , particularly getting out of the danger zone & players like DCE & Lyon often just go foward when needed. At times ppl have been critical of Ballin challenging the markers but have even noticed him skipping out asking questions in recent times on the back of this.
