I’ve noticed this too, and a lot of the time it’s simply poor cleaning. Retallick has been the biggest culprit. Too often we are trying to pull someone down, sideways, and doing a poor job of it. I understand it’s hard to move someone over the ball if you are trying to drive them forward but the choices of when to drive over vs drag down could be better as dragging down just puts bodies in the way of the halfback. Some of the ball presentation isn’t flash either. It’s sad that one of our best cleaners and ball presenters is a back - alb.In every game our breakdown looks dodgy, like we are about to lose the ball, we barely retain it at times and the ball isn't clean or fast. Been the story of Hansen's last few years.
Needs to be sorted out ASAP next cycle.
