Had the boys been to a party until 5am? It seemed like it!
Cold but perfect conditions at Sudbury should have really suited our game but the boys never really turned up. Uncharacteristic handling errors dogged us the entire game and never allowed pressure to build. Heads dropped and we were slow up in defence allowing a good Sudbury team too many easy metres. Tackling was too patchy allowing the opposition to build momentum. Our scrum was strong and the line out functioned well but we have to return to our normal style and dominate the breakdown to control games.
Thank you to Sudbury for a warm welcome and a really good game, they played very well and deserved the win!
