Sure I saw a stat about Jack having the highest throw rate over the first 2 or 3 rounds of champions Cup. This isn't the first time it's been mentioned here but that stat must mean that It can't be too bad.

"Keep an eye out also for the battle of the hookers– Jack Yeandle has made more successful lineout throws than any other No.2 (25/28) but Sean Cronin’s 100% success rate (14/14) is the best in the competition.

Absolutely right tulls.

The chiefs are renowned for their driving maul (usually from a line out), it is a well used tool in every match!
So the law of averages will mean that hookers that take a hell of a lot of line outs will obviously miss one or two more than most other hookers!

Plus who called the lineouts at Falcons?. Its a bit unfair on Jack - it always seems to be the hooker who gets it the most when it goes wrong.

You can predict the lineout failure by the length of time taken to set the line. If the ref or opposition slow the throw in, we consistently fail, whereas if it is straight in, we normally win.
Presumably related to the amount of pressure the opposition can put on the ball, and maybe a degree of "yips" when under the biggest pressure.
It is unfortunately more obvious near the try line, as this is where the throw ins are normally slowest, and the opposition best set up to defend.

Just to note that we lost a number of lineouts today with Luke throwing in. That suggests to me there’s something a bit more fundamental awry and not just a problem with the throw in.

Jack injured today, unfortunately it looked like he will be out for a while. LCD will probably start next weekend but who will be on the bench, Elvis or Shaun?

LCD will have to play on the plastic pitch, I wonder if we would have played him had Yenz been fit?

Shame for Jack, but if you were to get injured, this period is not too bad, as he would have had a break in the AW games anyway. Hopefully back in 4 weeks or so, if just a rolled ankle, so won't miss too much Prem action

At one point the stats said we (Chiefs) lost 4 out of 8 line outs?

So to show some respect - I think this thread should be re-named the line-out conundrum!!

One thing from the Montpellier warm up I noticed was that Bis du Plesis actually had a five minute line out drill with jumpers and throws.... Might be worth considering

Watched the game again last night and the commentary mentioned a couple of times that Montpellier had the best line out stats in the French top 14. They were putting men in the air at all our line outs in the first hour and we lost 3. When we started to really exert pressure in the last 20 minutes they had to defend our rolling maul, stopped challenging in the air and we won the line outs.

Just thinking were our lineouts better last year with Geoff calling them? I think they were.

Geoff Parling was the line out master, and Damien Welch was also excellent.

But the true masters were Hayes & Hanks of course. It didn't seem to matter if it was Clarkey or Si Alcott throwing in to the line out...very few ever seemed to go wrong.
