I think you are right gergreg. He simply stays marking his opposite oblivious to what is happening to his left. It is the complete opposite to what was happening a few years ago when we had freeways down our side lines because we played a compressed defensive line with a 'speed of a snail' slide.
In the match against Souths I don't blame BJ for the Inglis try although he missed the tackle. Inglis is just too strong and skillful with the ball. Inglis reminded me of the Mal days when a player would go high and he'd simply shrug off the defender with sheer strength. Sometimes you just have to say, 'too good'.
I didn't even blame Austin for the Cody Walker try. We all know that Austin can't defend a player with footwork, but that step from Walker was brilliant. Took me back to the days of Graeme Langlands who could do that off both feet, but it was a great example of a skill not seen so much in these days of 'power' football. Austin did give me my biggest head shaker moment though, when we 'lost the feed' to a scrum with Austin feeding the football into the scrum. The ball these days goes behind the second rowers feet. Yet he gave that great pass for Sia's try. Consistency - what's that? A fitting epitaph in his final home match for the Raiders.
I thought Sticky's post match comments, first about the sad passing of Lance Thompson and then his thanks for the NRL Hall of Fame presentation, showed him at his best. But it doesn't change the fact that his 5 year coaching record with the Raiders is poor.
