Our game style this year has been mostly ineffective. We have an over reliance on second man plays in good ball position. Et as a ball playing lock doesn’t engage anyone is slow and allows defences to easily adjust.
While et has been a good addition and has helped tighten up the middle, his involvement in attack is being overplayed. It needs a total rethink. We need to be playing at the line and at speed to engage defenders and create space for our outside men.
Teddy and our backrowers/centres should be turned back through the middle and any shifts should be off quick play the balls to suli.
Lateral, structured football is dead and is now suicide for us, witness the last two months of football. Our impotent attack has been as much to blame as our defence.
