I remember reading a Brian Ashton article many moons ago where he was talking about relegation and relegation rugby.... and his example was Bath before he took over which he argued was far too restricted in terms of it's rugby and it took a hero, in this case him, to encourage the players to throw the ball around and play winning rugby.
Essentially, by trying your damned hardest not too lose games you end up losing far more than you would trying to win them. (if that makes any sense at all!)
We're playing a stupid brand of failing rugby and trying to claw every result in our favour. Consequently we're not winning anything as there isn't the mindset or plan.... although I am glad that the Emporer has decided he needs some new clothes.
