Fleck calls for patience on attack
Cape Town - As they prepare to face the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this Saturday, Stormers backline coach Robbie Fleck says the backline needs to be more patient on attack.
The Stormers have scored only one try in their last two games - against the Force and Bulls - despite ending on the winning side on both occasions.
Fleck is not worried about the manner in which the team attacks, but more about how they execute.
“We want to keep ball in hand, but the important thing is to minimise errors, especially against a team like the Cheetahs who thrive on turnover possession,” Fleck told Netwerk24.
“I’m actually quite pleased with the way we’re attacking. Nevertheless, we saw in our defeat to the Hurricanes that one bad decision at the breakdown or a mistake close to their tryline could lead to a try against us.”
Fleck felt the team lacked patience on attack in their 15-13 win over the Bulls at Newlands last weekend.
“We’re doing all the hard work outside the 22, but as soon as we get within reach of the tryline, it’s as if we’re trying to force things rather than remain calm and make good decisions.”
Saturday’s clash at Free State Stadium kicks off at 17:05.
