    1. Whenever Lyon/Matai or anyone else for Manly kick off, the ball very rarely lands between the try line and dead ball. It always seems to fall between the twenty and ten metre line. I can understand if the kicks had a heap of hang time but they don't .

    2. Our kickers hardly ever put up spiral/ floating bombs, rather they put up predictable up and overs. Look at some of Cronk and Sandows kicks. They terrorise most fullbacks.

    3. Our inability to consistently turn 4 points into 6 and no back up kicker for Lyon who is an average kicker in any case.

      the ref's inability to penalise both teams for similar infringements pisses me off even more, not saying it would have changed the results of any games but it would be nice to see some consistency once in a while

      Anyone remember jamie Lyon attempt against the Dogs last year in the Semi ? He was shaking all ove the place ! Old age has caught up to him in high pressure situations !!

      We should be focussing on Hiku going forward who seems to keep his cool

      I totaly agree with the spiralling bombs !!!!! its crazy

      I cant believe Jamie Lyon is still our preffered goal kicker !

      I have supported tooves many times ... But im starting to see some consistant flaws in his preparation for games ! Its the small things that our staff are missing out on .. I cant belive it !!!

      Spot on. Been saying it for years. And why the hell don't we use the short kick-off? The chances of regaining possession are much greater than 50:50.
      Can I also add: forwards standing in the backline from scrums; not using the kick over the top from scrums, when all defenders are in the line. Mind you, our outside backs are the slowest in the comp so this tactic would work better against us, than for us.
