Losing the ball 22 times sums up our season. Terrible.

I know practically everything has been said about this performance which was so much like that at the AJ Bell. The main question in WHY

Watching it did not seem like we had that much possession and territory. The difference obviously was Newcastle made more of their less amount of ball and were more incisive. Our tackle success was woeful and well below Prem or any other standard.

One or two exceptions like Mercer and Lahiff seem to be carrying the rest of the team on tackling. I have thought for some time, some of the players leave the hard dirty work like tackling to people like Louw and seem not prepared to get involved themselves. Of course when they are called upon to tackle or jackle instead of a missing team mate, they are not as successful. This aspect of our physicality has been exposed many time this season and it is about time all the squad toughened up. After all what is going to happen when François hands his boots up?
