Great win by Kings yesterday and whilst it wasn’t the result I was hoping for it was an enjoyable day. Supporters on both sides were in great voice. Scots for the second week in a row kicked too much and did not control the ball. However it’s clear GPS rugby is alive and well and next year will be a cracker!
I think Scots kicked to much too. But I think what also happened was that as the season progressed, opposition coaches got better at aligning their own defensive patterns and identified ways to crack the Scots brick wall defence.
At the start of the season, Scots wheeled out a subtley different brand of footy that was very very effective until opposition teams worked it out.
Case in point that trial game v New in week 2 when Scots won 50 odd to nil. New are a good team but with all due respect seemed to have no idea how to contain Scots multi-phase high tempo game.
But by round 4 and 5 of the comp, Joeys and Kings had worked out how to play them.
To some degree Scots probably had to resort to the boot when their offence wasnt as effective.
I could be completely wrong though. Just my thoughts.
