I reckon you’re spot on.I suspect we will see something pretty close to the 23 below. QC is worth the price of admission alone
You’re right on that. Some on the forum seem to think that because Lolesio topped the backline tackle count for Australia in Bled III that is a good thing. Well he had to top the tackle count because that was the channel the AB’s were running they ain’t stupid. Likewise Beauden Barrett topped the AB tackle count because he is the least dominant defender in the AB backline and Australia ran at him.
Maybe our obsession with tackle stats in Australia comes from overly simple game of League because it annoys me endlessly as the most important statistic that you can’t record is the tackle that was never missed because it was never attempted because the player was never in the right position because they don’t have Rugby smarts.
