Terrible 2nd half defence against relegation fodder (better?)
« on: Saturday 16-Feb-2019, 17:23* »
Walking home past fans wanging on about a great win feeling like Im trapped in a parallel universe.

We were dreadful after the first 20 mins and shipped 33 points to a team challenging for relegation.

Ward is a liability and the sooner hes gone the better.

Assume Gustard will not be impressed.

Yes, parallel universe. 5 points against a team we have struggled against and offer no threat to us. Stuff to work on sure, but job done.

Yeah I get job done but the defence was embarrassing. Any other side would have killed us.

Sitting there was awful. We offered nothing after 25 mins.

Quins scored 21 points in the first 25 minutes.

They finished the match having scored 47 points, having added four more tries.

"offered nothing" sounds like it's completely wrong to me

I can see it from both sides.  Game was won after the first 20.  After that we cruised a bit.  We had more in the tank if needed.  From the other side, I get the feeling PG will not be over the moon about that.  I dont think he will be happy we took our foot off the gas.  Compare to sides like Sarries, they would have kept their foot on the throat.

Disappointed that Worcester left with a try bonus point, but it was a high scoring weekend, let alone match, and we chalked up a decent score and plenty of tries. At no point did we look like losing. It's probably more difficult to keep focused in that situation, especially when you have the sort of start we did.

We won. With a high score, and a bonus point. Plenty to work on, but I think you need to think of the glass as half full... We'd have contrived to lose that last season!

COYQ!

Hmmm

Could be a good thing that we lost the 2nd half - plenty of motivation for firing up the team for next weekend.

Worcester demonstrated their credentials as a team that can beat any other team with fourteen players.

In the big scheme of things, we won with a TBP. From the league perspective we couldn't have done better, bar improving the points difference.

Well I had a cracking afternoon. Loads of tries, some great tackles and almost no boring scrum resets. We never looked like losing so didnt mind them scoring. Their last try was a thing of beauty, so all in all, great way to spend a day.

Agreed about Ward. Saw Crumpton throw up soon as he came off so possibly he was unwell rather than a tactical change.

Agreed defence needs work today, gabs defence was terrible! Its like he just watches the other lads tackle and lets them run past him!
Other than that, Im happy. We needed a win and we got one. Onto Bristol now...

Dont get me wrong. BP win. But Gustard will be spitting as was I. Whole basis of the team was this new defence and it vanished. Ward abysmal, Gabs great going forward terrible going back. We were shocking for their tries - and they scored and scored and scored.

I get wed won but thats not what top 4 sides do and letting them score 33 is not good.

And having seen the video Gustard says as a defence coach hes not happy.

Loads to work on defensively. Can't be too annoyed having seen us put 7 tries past anyone though.

Agree and regardless, after the Quinssa event on Tuesday I see a Monday morning chat coming.
