Both these teams were substantially better at the breakdown and in their defensive organisation compared to yesterday’s teams. The hurricanes simply had no dynamism or creativity on attack. Good defence by the blues but the canes need to get better, they’re missing Jordie badly, but they’re also needing some of the forwards to step up their running game, and the interplay between forwards and backs need to improve significantly.
I had started writing some things long those lines but it all got a bit confusing. Problem is the ipppsition are getting in there befor the player has placed the ball. I don’t want to allow the tackled player to take forever to place the ball or to prevent the opposition going for it immediately, so maybe you just have two seconds from the moment you are tackled, during which time the opposition can go for it too but the attacking player doesn’t get penalised. ??it will be interesting to see if the next game has a similar number of penalties
question, if there going to take a hard line with the not releasing penalties, do we think it might run smoother if it was just a free kick? some of the ones given last night we 100% on the money technically but in reality were fractions of a second.
Do we think we're just going to start seeing trying to place it as they go to ground to try and get some distance between the ball and the tackle?
