That's because Hastings is driving at the line on the 4th tackle. Bizarre tactic.


Why?
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

I just re-watched the game. I agree last-tackle options weren't always great, but what did strike me was that Hastings really put in a shift. And Harry Smith has been working on his tackling. And bar that awful pass behind everyone, he was fine. Seems to me that our defence is decent, we clearly have plenty of attacking threat and can score some great tries. The fact that were're not meshing together often enough is a matter of polish, the raw materials are there.

Well said mate!
When we click we will score points for fun, just need a bit longer on the training pitch and match sharpness. And the defence is as good as Wane's days, although a few too many missed tackles.

The defence, workrate and camaraderie is terrific - far better than last year. Often we look good with the ball too. Great base to work from - if we can make less errors and be smarter with kick plays we'll be a very good team.

I would bring Burgess and O'Loughlin back in for Shorrocks and Clark - not sure there's a spot for Flower and Partington at the moment. I'd also like to see Greenwood continue ideally but it probably makes sense that he gives way for Leuluai so there is a hooker/halfback option on the bench.

You’d imagine Lam will pretty much have a full squad to choose from in a couple of games time, so his 17 will be very interesting when that is the case. There’s a couple of guys who’ll need to smash the door down against Catalans (if they get picked) if they want to keep a spot (Bibby, Greenwood and Clark in particular). The picture isn’t as clear now because you can’t leave out Byrne or Havard. They’ve both made a spot their own IMO.

Partington still banned for this one I think, 4 game ban I think he got, served the Salford game pre lockdown and the last 2 weeks.

Lam said him and Gildart should be back the week after Catalan.
RICHARDS IS SUPERMAN!!!!
