The 2’s have a lot of spit and fire and are eager to play rugby … but with a 50-60% turnover of players from the past seasons, the new challenge is to get everyone on the same page. There were flashes of form, but then stanzas of inexperience… however this young team knows how to score tries, with crossing the chalk 5 times.
The biggest need for improvement is the contact area and team cohesion and you can see it as the game elapsed we began to turnover more possession in the tackle and more individuals trying to break the game open in order to chase the scoreline. The final score was Scottish 35 Barbarians 55.
In the coming weeks we are going to double up and spend a little more time with the group in order to improve upon the 2 and 1 record thus far.
