I don’t quite understand the game plan that gets thrown around known as ‘locking it in’ the forward half. To me that sounds like the aim is moving the ball with blunt force and hoping we manage to create a scoring shot after a huge expenditure of effort.
Yes keeping the ball in the forward half is a good thing but the other teams are finding ways of kicking easy goals on the transition when we don’t keep winning possession at the stoppage to create a shot on goal.
During the 3rd quarter against the saints we expended huge energy for little reward. Some of that was through missing shots on goals but also not enough fluent movement of the ball which led to shots with a high degree of difficulty.
And therein is our problem. We rely on kicking a score with high accuracy from the limited chances we get. Our stats often look great on paper except the scoreboard. When it comes off our current style can work but it won’t work consistently.

Good points, KK, we should not be concentrating on locking the footy in the forward line, we should be concentrating on getting it in there, then getting it straight out again. Back to the center bounce.
