Re: 2022 Rd 21 V Panthers: Game Day

There isn't really good video coverage of it, but it is possible that Salmon's vision is obscured by the other tackler and just lashes out with his feet. But we all know how inconsistent the MRC is.

Too many errors. Got to be perfect in the second half ... like last week.

That just plays perfectly into Penrith's hands. We need to find ...

Re: 2022 Rd 20 V Titans: Game Day

It's really not too far different to a hip drop tackle. The tackler is throwing their body weight at a point below the centre of balance and the attacking player (Tapine) really has no option but to fold over. It's clearly very dangerous and only a matter of time before it's threatening a player's c...

You would think so. Got to also be some questions (internally) about the Roosters tackling technique. Was it two retirements last year purely from head knocks and add to that Collins and Keary. That's not great.
