To be fair, Lewi didn't have a good game yesterday. Scored late but his defence was poor. Had a guy in the tackle, only to release him and end up losing thirty metres in the process.
The players don't seem to be on the same page as to what they're trying to do in the tackle. On more than one occasion we'll have two players both going high or low so they end up getting fended off or they're being left room for the offload. That confusion is causing all sorts of problems for us. The props got caught out yesterday, one leading directly to a try. The props need to be the guards on the rucks, minimal chance of one on one against the backs. They're being caught out in the midfield area creating a dog leg. The game is moving so quickly they don't have time to set up the defensive line so are being targeted by drifting backs who can pick them off like the 9 did. Danaher needs to up his game quickly. When defence is poor this consistently, the coach needs to realise what he's doing isn't working.
