The cowboys are in the 8 because they have suddenly become the best defensive unit in the NRL. Giving away just 12 points per game since round 21...

When we were on our hot streak we were defending much better than we were during our two losing sectors...

Rounds 1 - 10 --- 25.8 points against, 15.1 points for, ave per game - 8 losses, 2 wins
Rounds 11 - 20 --- 17.5 points against, 26.25 points for, ave per game - 1 loss, 7 wins
Rounds 21 - 26 --- 21.6 points against, 22.3 points for, ave per game - 4 losses, 2 wins

For a season average of 23.0 points against, and 20.6 for, per game - 11 wins and 13 losses

People talk about our magic number of 24 points, that if we get that many we win the game, but I think the NRL has another magic number: 20 points conceded per game. If any team averages over that they miss the top 8...

The only team to concede less than 20 points average-per-game, and miss the 8 in 2013, is the broncos, with a 19.88 average, and no team in the 8 has conceded more that 20 per game...

The top 4 teams combined are averaging 15 points conceded per game...

Last years grand final score was 14 - 4 and the average GF score line is 23.2 - 10.5 over the last 15 years... Which is almost exactly what we got beaten by in 2011...

It seems pretty obvious to me that it's more important to stop the other team scoring than all other things combined.... Razzell dazzell gets far too much credit in our team and if we persist with picking players who can't be bothered playing for the team we will never win a premiership...

So, IMFO, unless we can get together as a team, and play for each other, to bring our points against under the 15 point line, we will continue on this shit house roller coaster ride forever....
