It’s hard to know where we are imho.
We are SO fumbly that who really knows what our game plan is ?
If we could gather and hit out first option we would have a better idea of where we sit.
The endevour is there in spades, it’s a bit like the mens the last couple of years the ball is just living in our backline, the weight of forward entry’s means that the backline will inevitably let through enough goals that we lose.
Too often we seemed to try to handball to someone who was too close which didn’t help.
I haven't watched the game yet but I have been thinking for some time that the lack of handballing power in the women's game limits its effectiveness. It's more of a last resort than a way to fashion an attacking chain of possessions.
