Missed tackles last night.

Special mention to:

Player of the year josh griffin - 7

minichello - 7

kelly - 6

sneyd - 6

"Best defender in the squad" lane - 6

4th highest for missed tackles in the comp this season

No wonder our season has fallen apart. Absolutely disgraceful in defence for most of the season

I hope to god that pearson is bringing in a real defence coach for next year

Try errors and penalties
Try LR’s September W/L %

Does anyone , and I mean , anyone think this will be resolved next year ?

Impossible

Don't worry removing Shaul from the team will sort all this.

Thanks for the stats which I agree are alarming.

I see quite a few posters advocating the recruitment of a new attacking coach for next season and you are (justifiably given these statistics) calling for a new defensive coach.
I don't see this happening though as if you recruit both what is the justification for keeping Radford on?

Saints are 6th in the missed tackles table, and averaged around 2 tries per game conceded.

(We missed around 1 tackle per game more than saints this season.)

Yes, but if you look at the number of marker tackles made by each club we are dead last, which would suggest our misses are clustered around the back of the ruck, the most critical area.

Which is surprising with amount of tackles Houghton makes, makes you wonder what everyone else is doing, or not doing

But you can't assume that low marker tackles means we miss marker tackles.

You've also got to take into account the number of sets each team defends - the more sets, the more tackles, and the more missed tackles. And, of course, the opposite is true.
All too complicated.

Anyone notice 90% of saints' sets were 5 drives and a kick? I thought that was frowned upon.

Not when the last tackle kick is effective
Dont forget Saints put 22 points on us and we were deemed to be playing well
It could have been a lot worse because Saints made several handling errors in good attacking positions
