One positive league leading stat and one negative.
Just from observation, a lot of teams would rather slow down the ruck and give away a 6-again early in the tackle count, than allow the opposition a quick play-the-ball with a staggered and retreating defensive line and risk conceding points that way.

There isn't really a statistic that says how many points are conceded or saved from that decision though.

Funny not many people talking about him being in the 17 for nsw this year... would be a good result for manly but foolish I feel for nsw if true
Every time that dont pick him it seems to hurt us (NSW).

If he was a QLDer he'd never leave the side

Yep this.

Not all ruck infringements are the same.

*Not directly related to Jake just in general
 
Jurbo is the best defensive player in the NRL and we'd be lost without him. However, defence is only 50% of the assignment.
When was the last time you saw him break a tackle? I don't know if he even tries to bend the line; perhaps his aim is a quick play-the-ball?
To gain points in a MOM he'll need to cobble together some attack.
Derp derp de derp derp. You haven't read the room friend. Jake. Just all Jake right now, love it or leave.

Yes, agree.

I suspect we are desperate to slow down the play the ball. I didn't take this exercise past about game 6 or 7 but earlier in the season I checked, and we had only been the faster play the ball team in one game (the loss to Parra I believe). Note that Reuben also rates high for this: it isn't happening by accident.

If we are consistently the slower play the ball team that may also have something to do with our small running metres from dummy half.

Rarely does big posts worth reading....maybe
Madge got this right, and Fittler got it oh so wrong when he left Jake out G1 2023 - choosing Tevita Pangai Jnr at Prop instead?? Has so much heart that guy, he left NRL to fight, and got KTFO in 80secs in his debut.

Against a nobody who had lost all his fights pretty much.

No wonder they sacked Freddy...

Would’ve liked Api in there. Both tackling demons. Can you imagine the T household when not only does he get named, but the ‘C’ next to his name! They’ll need a box of stillnox to knock him out tonight!
