Hmm defence coach?
Interesting given we have shipped 618 points this season, only Percy Park and Northern have had more put past them at 622 each.
Im not sure what the philosophy has been this season regarding structure and play but the points against clearly indicates our defence hasn't been very good at all this season.
Im fully aware that numbers and being unable to field a lot of senior players for big parts of the season does have a huge impact and some people may see that as the main reason for a lot of our results, but surely players we bring in should realistically be able to transition into the team already knowing calls, moves and defensive structures.
Is it something that is worked on from Academy upwards or First team down.....are all senior teams including potentially from u16 using the same moves, calls and attacking/defensive structures......Or does each team just do their own thing??
I would think or even hope that there is a process in place that covers this and ensures that players moving up teams/squads are able to do so seamlessly without having to learn everything over again which does take time.........and can impact on their confidence and those around them?
