Better late than never-not a maxim Id apply to Laneys play however.
At least they worked it out before the WC.
I cant decide how bad we really are.We played pretty well against Ireland, first half, but there was no penetration at all.We had loads of posession, but just passed it back and forth along the line before the law of averages dictated that somebody would turn it over.Geech needs to concentrate on what we do well.Line outs, and scrapping around the edges.
Oh and a kicker might be useful.....even if only to start dropping goals when we can't cross the line.
Catt over Healey?I can only imagine that Austin is still not fully fit, as he's the ideal cover man for a squad campaign.Not the best in any position, but tolerably good all across the back line.Maybe he's seen as disruptive.
