My first game in a while because I am working in Asia.
The whole experience was so different with only west stand open and no real atmosphere... but some thoughts
There is only line out rolling maul... that gave us 3 of 4 tries... we had nothing else
It was plan a b and c
I was so happy we won but without the lineout maul we would have lost. Less possession. Less penetration and clueless with ball in hand
Ben Franks was imperious in defence ... both in terms of tackle count amd stopping rollimg mauls. And 2 tries!
Paicey also.awesome in first line of defence...and a try
Our 10 was awful in most facets of the game. Until he decided to play territory in last 10 mins when he finally kicked to corners... we discovered he is good at that!!
Josh mcnally... big impact. Huge presence. We needed it
Sorry to see an empty stadium.
