1. Match other teams forwards, make 8 metres plus with every run
2. Kick effectively, avoid kicking to the back 3 on the full
3. Rush up off the line and put opposition playmakers under pressure
4. Pass the ball around and keep the opposition guessing
I think this is an effective game plan, it’s stupid to suggest, but if the 1st half is anything to go by, we clearly don’t understand these basic rules. The Sharks proved in Round 2 that if you do these things, you can beat any team. Why are we not doing this from the get go?
Blame the coach, the captain, the preparation, the players, the admin, it goes no-where. Simple things give you simple wins.
