It doesn't have to be that far outside off. He's edged almost everything on a good line around off-stump.
Easier for Siddle to get it on that line that Hilf though.
Edit: And if Trott wants to leave everything just outside off all day then I'd let him. Dot balls around off are better than drifting onto middle because he won't play it. That's where patience comes in, and if you consistently bowl straighter because the batsman won't hit anything outside off then you've lost. Would almost guarantee that if you kept your line Trott would start trying to get the ball away on the off eventually.
