Right edge defence

Didn't think it was possible that the right edge defence could get worse. Tonight proved me wrong. There was an overlap every time they went that side and it was only tigers clunky attack and a bit of pace from duster that saved them each time.

  • The right edge defence was great today. We covered well and worked together. A big difference from the rest of the year.

  • They were eels defend is that Dunster jams in and D Brown runs from his spot in cover defence. Hence, when we defend with 12 players, that system does not work anymore. 

    • It was most of the game. Rushing in and hoping the cover defence will hold up is not a sustainable solution. 

  • Well you can't blame Dunster for a 3 man overlap. DB needs to count numbers and control that side.

    Dunster had a awesome defensive game, considering he spent most time covering 2 players. Opi had a shocker.

    • You just had a shocker

    • From my seat in front of the box, I thought Dunster had a solid game, there was one missed tackle that he tried to recover, but even the aspect that he along with Opi came in field, much like Ferts & Waqa did, as the ball was spread by Wests, both of them were able to move out to the side and cover the attack. Dunster let one past him but chased and brought him down.

      The right side defence is much better with the moves so far, with Waqa & Opi swapping sides and Dunster on the wing.

      • Even if they manage to keep it up with the cover defence against the betters teams which I doubt will be the case, it puts the defence on the back foot and the attacking team are able to get a roll on. 

  • No, no, no in the words of Gus Gould. Defended and slid well. 

  • I thought our edge D was good. I didn't have a problem with it

  • I just got home . Thought  the defence was generally good out on the edges.  ONe thing I noticed, ROBERTS was literally on the sideline which caused Doughi  to kep racing up. GUTHO had eyes up every set.  It was literally on all day that hole.  DUNSTER is a good little player.  Hate to say it but FERGO might finish a EEl in the Reggies. Except for thgis week to replace SIVO.
