    This. All in favour of the Walker brothers ignoring stats and relying on their sense and the points on the board.

    The idea that offloading at will and spreading the ball early in the count tires defences and is more efficient than regulation completed sets makes a lot of sense, and is worth a shot.

    I also don't think they need mass roster adjustments. Most pro RL players know how to play off-the-cuff, they're just told not to.

    Yep, you are less likely to get sacked if you do what everyone else does. Losing whilst doing the conventional thing is more acceptable than losing whilst don't something different.

    About 13.5% of players owning Walters. Late trades or just dead accounts?
