Big improvements these past couple of games with simpler more direct hole running plays playing at or through the line with back rowers and backs hitting straight lines---less trying to finesse our plays around the defence with scripted sweeping plays that are used too early in the game. Playing the simple flat lead running option early on sucks outside defenders in setting up the pet plays for Stewart later on which is what i've been wanting to see for a long time. DCE ball playing 15-20mtrs in from touch on the right edge leaves plenty of room for a variety of options and plays and also more space to flood with extra hole runners to draw in defenders. Our go forward was not that great against the Broncos due to our shallow forward rotation but it upped the ante enough times throughout the game when required. Our defence is not as good as past years especially up the middle and wrapping up the ball needs to improve big time. What i liked about the Warriors performance was although they chanced their arm with offloads etc it had a purpose beyond just second phase play for the sake of it. Offloads and constant changes of direction to tire and not allow the Storm to dominate the ruck with numbers combined with simple sharp up the middle runs showed this Warriors team is a step up from previous squads. Manly 08 showed what was required to beat the Storm and other teams are following our lead.
