Coach Freddie wants inprovement

Posted on February 08, 2009

“In the context of the competition, beating Pukke in their backyard is a very important moral booster. There is no denying that. I was also impressed by our clinical defends through out the match and the fact that we did not let go once we were in front.”
“Our biggest problem in Potchestroom was the too many unnecessary mistakes that directly led to us losing possession on twenty occasions. In rugby, at whatever level, this is unacceptable statistics.”
“Pukke beat us comprehensibly at the breakdown points, we were not on par in the set pieces and also conceded too many penalties in the red zone (the area between the goal and 22 meter line),” said Grobler.
Tuks will have to improve in all these areas because of the daunting task awaiting them in die Friendly City.
“NMMU will be no push over and nothing can be read into their defeat against Shimlas (37-11). They are a very competitive squad of players with big forwards and physical backs,” added Grobler.
The match is not televised.
