Re: Last Practice Match v Sydney
Reply #105 –
The biggest concern for me was ball use. It was terrible quite frankly:
- Missed targets (easy ones).
- Long, high, loopy kicks to no one.
- Around the corner/over the shoulder, high kicks in hope to no one.
- Hand balls to stationary team mates or team mates in a worse position or under more pressure.
Put all the game style stuff and personal available aside, I feel the performance on Friday from a ball movement point of view was unacceptable.
If we use the ball like that in the coming weeks of the season proper, we will get annihilated.
Sydney used fast., precise, short kicks to move the ball unimpeded. Nothing complicated or cute.
