Re: Kicking ball to opposition

Exeter have the confidence to go 20-25 phases making little ground, we don't.


We tried to play Exeter's game on Saturday and failed miserably. We were like rabbits in a car's headlights. If you are going to play their game, you have to be confident of keeping the ball for many phases and not be going backwards. Neither of which we seem to be able to do.

If anything there wasn't enough tactical kicking and what kicking we did do, box kicks or kick tennis was poor. We didn't try the little dink over the top until later in the game. When we did, it worked. This, and 'give the ball to Roko ASAP' should have been the tactic all through.
