Interceptions this season

Is it just me or is it the case that the number of interceptions we 'have' given away this season is a fraction of last years? Certainly in terms of interceptions leading to tries against us. Last season Harry Randall and Sheeds in particular had a fair few of their passes pounced on but this season I actually can't remember any. Sheeds is still going right to the line and we are still giving it a right go from all over the place (even if a little more careful) but interceptions seem to have been all but eradicated.

There was one against London Irish when Naholo scored but there definitely seems to have been a lot less this season.

Yeah, I think as the players get more familiar with the game plan they are developing their "fractional decision making". Where they might have forced a pass before because it was he game plan, they now are better at recognising i the pass is actually on.

Agree SD. I've also noticed Sheeds and others briefly dummy the pass more to tempt a defender to rush up and leave the defensive line (hoping for an interception) which then leaves an overlap for us. Maybe that is also helping keep defenders from looking for interceptions from us so much.
