WHAT THE COACH HAD TO SAY:
Every week we get to the game and we’re happy with what we’ve done and how we’ve worked during the week, but something needs to drop for us to get the confidence. We’re in a bit of a spot at the moment, but we just need to work hard to get ourselves out of it. One game at a time.
We crossed the line a few times but we weren’t able to score. WE really need to look at ourselves as players and really think about how we execute out their on the field. Myself, first and foremost, I was poor out there as a leader. Leaders need to regroup the team, get them tight and get back to the drawing board on Monday.
Next Match: Hurricanes v Blues, Palmerston North, 7.35pm Friday 13 March.
