Have a look at the video of the tries on the Thunder website. Its the same problems as the Toulouse game , the line speed within our own 10m has to be spot on and it wasn't. There were also gaps on the right hand side a few times, one very well exploited by Brown for the 2nd Gateshead try and the tackling in that area needed more support to bring down the bigger man. Is just little things like that which will make the difference, I think it will be a much tighter league this year anyway. I like the way we can attack at pace through the middle particuarly through James and Reece and outwide which we didn't see so much of last year.
Gateshead are definately an improved side just on that video alone, but considering they haven't won a competitive game for TWO YEARS
