One of the disadvantages of playing Owen & Brad at outside centre is that they both pass like inside centres; fast and hard.
Its great there, but not in the narrow channels close to the wing, where a soft pop-up is needed
Each time we did a side to side we made ground; when the ruck came back to the Rous side, it was around 10-15 yards further forward. Not only that but by the time 5 side to sides were up, there were gaps on the wings. We weren't always able to get to the 5th one, but every time we did there were gaps
As the hands get better in the season, we will put together more phases and will open up more gaps and score more tries
plus Charlies little darts through the 10 channel make more room for Brad
