Can ACCESS gradient 1km wind interface predict Cyclone intensity?

Here is some snaps of ACCESS R gradient winds ( 1km) during the FEB 2015 event of dual cyclones LAM and MARCIA in the BOM jurisdiction in Australia

I snapped the windstreams at each stage of the cyclones and categorised them by the publicised central pressure of BOM cyclone tech details or USnavy

As you can see there are some limitations to accurately assessing the intensity of cyclones by this method
