Perhaps we need to look at a block of games overall, say, 10 games? :)

IIRC the long range tries to Brown and Pickersgill were the result of good carries off our line rather than shifting the ball.

I’m not so sure about the aesthetic argument. I’d rather support a winning team than one that chucks the ball around nicely but comes up short (Rohan Smith’s team? Remember that Fev play off game?). Besides you have to play it safe in certain areas and earn the right to play the fancy stuff. We can’t expect champagne rugby all the time and I’m sure you know all that. Remember during Kear’s time we have lost our two halfbacks that had any flair (Chisholm and Keyes) and both those players had their own issues. Since then we’ve had players who are very different or who are learning the game. You can only work with what you’ve got. Add to that the fact that we’ve had to rebuild the rest of the squad thanks to Chalmers making a c0ck up of the finances and you’re back to square one.

Don't forget the pitch at Dewsbury isn't exactly designed for free flowing rugby.

Agree with Bullseye comments above about Rohan Smith. Didn't we score a combined score of 150 points or something ridcoulous against the bottom two. We then didn't even look like scoring against Fev. Could still be playing that game today and we still wouldn't have scored.

I actually don't think we're that bad rugby wise. Broughs try Sunday was some superb rugby. Brad England try was also good to watch. The week before DFJ scored in the corner was well worked. Dan Fleming being superbly put through a gap. They're decent, well worked rugby tries IMO I think we did go through a stage under Kear where it was 5 drives and an uncontested kick to the corner, but I'm not seeing that now.

My main issue with Kear’s coaching is his attitude to last tackle plays when we’re on the opposition line. We’ve often got to the situation where we hand the ball over rather than put in an attacking kick. That’s not good enough in my opinion. I’ve lost count of the times when watching a game on TV when Kear is co-commentator when this has happened and he’s said “it’s not a bad place to turn the ball over” as if it’s good play.

I know we’re a long way from elite level but we ought to aspire to be better on last tackle plays. We need to build pressure and not simply hand the ball over. In the NRL you almost never see a handover on the last tackle.
