Tiredness in attack and a bit of inexperience from the young guys. Twice we were pushing crazy passes trying to score early in the tackle count, instead of taking the tackle and setting up the play again. Also, the missed kick at 12-4 put massive pressure on to have to score twice, which induced a bit of panic and took a bit of wind out of the sails.
I cannot recall a set in the entire game where we even found the in goal with a kick. Yes, the refs didn’t help because they were allowing a slow ruck, but we need to work out how to get down the field and apply some more pressure in attack and not rely on 50m + tries.
That said, I think it was a GREAT effort. If we can defend like that and get our fair share of territory and possession, not many teams will beat us.
