    Watching last night the amount of possession GC had against Manly all night really showed up in the stats, and look at the stats we can gain some additional comfort in last nights results as the stats show that rarely a team that far on the wrong end of them wins.

    Manly are fully aware of these stats and must control the ball a little better and in our second halves in the finals we can post 18-30 points easily.

    Stats also saying we had better improve our posessions and not give away so much ball. Stats like that next week and we are gone.

    I'm not doom and gloom. We got to work on our defensive structure. All good. I predict that our second half efforts will rise in the finals.

    Yep - if you just looked at those stats, you would have thought the Titans had won!

    Offloads will butcher us next week if we don't wrap it up.

    How come the stats don't have penalties, which are the most important aspects of football these days. It was Titans 7 Manly 3.
    With some much betting on matches these days it is only a matter of time before a ref will be compromised.

    Thats one thing we've been poor on, wrapping up offloads thankfully our scramble defense has been top notch.

    Our defense was great - pity we brought the need for it onto ourselves.

    Yes Who, the penalties are the real killer. Keep those to a minimum and you're almost home. So many tries are scored after a penalty. That's why I fancy Lussick may not get a run in the finals.
