Field goal / golden point

Post by raider 86 »

Hey guys does anyone know our plan here?

Years gone by we have been a rable when it comes to field goal but last year sezer finally steped up and slotted a few, well 3 in the one game against the sharkies.

This year we dont have any real contenders, Hodgo? Id say no. Jack id say no. CNK defiently cant. George has kicked one back in the UK.

This might be the difference once again in making the top 4.

I assume Wighton and Williams would be the go-to men. Not great options, but all we really have. I'd expect Ricky doesn't want the team to have to rely on winning a game by 1 point. In that respect we miss Sezer. That Sharks game last year was crazy.

We didn’t seem to have a plan on Saturday, or if we did, it wasn’t followed. Didn’t look at all well rehearsed like last year.

We never got in a close enough position to take a good shot against the Eels. We were too conservative in our play and they as a result managed to keep pinning us back. They then rolled the dice to win territory and it paid off.

Wighton and Williams both look like they can strike them pretty well - we should be fine there. The way we approach the extra period needs to come in question IMO.

Kicking to the corner rather than a fluke fifty meter field goal might be a good option, too. Where was the footy brains?

I was thinking the same.... I would have kicked to the corner and made them work it out...
