    The amount of times we are caught out just rolling out of the ruck. Can we actually get up and stand at marker? Not just saying it because of the field goal, but all the time guys go down and get caught there.

    Every game.

    1. We dont get the numbers in tackles to dominate.

    2. We get little leanancy from the refs in most games leading to us bending the rules less. and not be able to wrestle as much.

    3. Its a roll on effect, once the opposition gets a quick play the ball, the defenders are left making desperation tackles, rather then front on dominating tackles, meaning we cant get the numbers in the tackles. Its a vicious cycle.

    You can bet your bottom dollar W.B. will fix this. And it will go a long way to us being a competitive side again, because the ruck area is our real weakpoint in defence, scrambling, and on our line we'd be one of the best in the Comp.

    Our boys are scared to get three in the tackle and peel off because the refs penalize us all the time! Melbourne can do it all day long! Im really getting sick of the refs, to the point where they are making the game unlikable which makes me sad, they need to be held accountable.
