Re: Kicking ball to opposition

We're often very slow to put the actual kick in. We decide to kick, make it patently obvious that is what we are going to do, wait for the ref to say play it, and then use the full 5 seconds before kicking. Meanwhile the opposition have put 5 players in the back field to receive and bring it back to us........

If we didn't allow defences to set it would be more effective.

Quick ball is what gives you opportunities, but we seem to like lots of slow ball.

when we do play quickly (middle period vs Falcons, first 20 vs Quins, last 15 vs Exeter) we score tries.....
