Wednesday's Ruck & Maul
The Spirit of Rugby
Editorial Comment: Last week we talked about a "golden opportunity". Indeed, last Saturday we observed many players taking this opportunity and I laud your efforts. The road ahead will only get tougher and I wish you well. At this point in the season, I would like to make the following comments about the Prems. For me, there are four features that have stood out; (i) The primacy of possession and its effective use; (ii) The reduction of error; (iii) The reduction of penalties; and (iv) The infusion of pace. Now, whether or not these are the coach's goals, I have no idea but they are the four aspects of play that are outstandingly different to last season. Finally, Scott's edict of getting better each week seems to be resonating with the players. In conclusion today, we bring you weekly words from Scott.
