AB's supportive play is a good example

Dumbest play of the year?

2014-12-05 10:42

Francois Hougaard's schoolboy error in the Springboks final tour match against Wales must surely go down as one of the dumbest plays of the year. Hougaard took a quick tap from a penalty, only to boot out the ball into touch, giving the ball back to Wales. FAIL.

Michell's comments are really positive i think, our crash ball method can really be jacked up, would rather like to see the players not going to ground, and as for the box kick, that is allways a fifty fifty, what our backs lack is to use a grubber in stead of the high kick and charge.

A rugby ball in the air is easy to handle, but a bouncing rugby ball is really difficult, specially when the attackers are gunning for you. Wales used it four times and we were in trouble four times.

I grew up with learning how to kick a grubber, the late Hansie Brewis taught us this, its actually very easy.
Our team is fine as it is, just a few twitches needed, like the support for a runner, like the AB, actually the AB supportive play is the only difference between the two teams.
