Sharks are going backwards

I'm torn. The one thing the Sharks have done particularly well this year, is win with decent margins when not playing particularly well. They've done this by just hanging in, and utterly punishing any opposition errors. That SHOULD mean that when we find form, we will be potent.

The problem is, that over the weeks, we have been less and less clinical in our counter-attacks. We are dropping balls and fluffing overlaps... We seem to be doing more and more "hanging in", less and less actual attacking, and making more and more mistakes.

I know injuries have really messed with consistency, but we should not be going backwards the way we are. Hopefully that last game was a real wake-up call. We cant win by capitalising on opposition errors when 1) we keep fluffing opportunities, and 2) we are making more errors than the opposition!
