Interesting views.
I wonder if the performance data analysis is not up to scratch?
With all the data available it should be able to see where the Saints are slipping up?

Data can show the problems, but not practically what to do to fix it, that's where good coaching comes in.

E.g. I bet our data shows very low meters gained per carry, high number of passive vs. dominant tackles, etc. How you fix those problems is the issue (not sending one out runners into a brick wall of a set defence would be a start!)

One on one tackling is the biggest problem, no analysis will cure that.

How’s about metres covered, max and ave speeds, physical positioning on the field, etc

These tell you how the players are performing. I bet we move less, run slower and are more static / out of position than our oppos - this is down to lack of fitness / laziness or poor discipline. Fix that and you are a good chunk of the way there.

This data has been available to coaches for quite some time. Whether it is well used, or badly used, is the core of the argument, surely?20000

With two Sports Scientists in the family, I could only walk around the labs at their university with an open mouth as I relived my own fitness fights!

Bench marking in sport, as with any industry performance markers, must be chosen carefully before being applied.

Improvements or the raising of performance elements demand very carefully assessment or you can end up as McLaren have found - left behind.

And of course like any data, it is open to mis-interpretation and adding to confusion rather than helping!
