Enlightening article.

I do wish people would stop unpicking our attack though. We don't want everyone knowing what we're doing.

I am gonna put this out there..... Iím pretty sure that Chris Boyd has taken absolutely nothing from Dai Youngís wasps

Very informative and with the major focus on executing skills under pressure in pre-season, we are certainly being entertained by the boys in G,B&G

I agree WP, I think Chris Boyd brought this with him from NZ but I found the analysis interesting.

The article doesn't say Boyd has taken anything from Wasps it says what we are doing now is similar to what they were doing then, which is absolutely true. There are only so many ways you can ruck, or maul, or scrummage or attacking patterns you can run whatever anyone comes up with someone will have used something similar in the past.

In fairness, this may be a Vesty move who quite possibly could have taken it from Wasps.

It totally misses the point that our 9-15 are very happy to interchange positions (shirt number is immaterial) get the ball away quickly and look to swarm the opposition

The key is this - ignoring the number on your back. Everyone is working hard and popping up out of position so the opposition are confused. Proctor commented on this in a recent interview when asked where his favorite position was. They arenít constricted by the positional thinking. It makes exciting rugby.

The key is the interchange of players without the drop off in ability that used to occur. It used to be easy to predict our 1st XV but not any more. Look how well the 3 last minute replacements performed on Saturday. I doubt that 15 fans would agree on a 1st XV if asked to name one. Agreeing a playing squad of 23 is even harder.
The great thing is that the players are enjoying their rugby. Long may it continue.

I think you are right WP. Anyone watching the Wandies Insects game last week may have noticed that our backs were playing more or less the same way as the senior squad - Grase was at FH but all the other parts were different. Wasps play had no such shape, which suggests to me it was a function of the players in the senior squad. If you have a playing style everyone has to play it from the waterboy and the kitman onwards.
