    We still score over 20 points in a game. We still have the stats. BUT - we are not winning.

    We seem to relax with 10-20 to go.

    Yes when they pass the ball in draw and pass offloads our attack can look good if they don't panic.
    When they get up in the face of opposition attack our defence also looks good for ten to twenty minutes but they seem to prefer defence on the back peddle.
    If you look at all the sides at the top of the ladder like the Storm , Broncos and sharks for example they all spend most of their defensive game in an aggressive in your face mode not sitting back giving away metre after metre until you are backed onto your own goal line.

    If I knew that... maybe I'd be a top coach on big bucks! :)

    But I guess it's confidence thing. Teams like the Storm, once they get on top, they keep their foot on the throat. That's how you win titles. As the Dragons used to do. But the current side, although talented, is a way away from there.
