That’s a result of factors 1 and 3. Seems like when a good opposition crank up the pressure our pretty handball game gets exposed. Then the ball gets back to the middle and our ruck issues become apparent.Complete brain fades during quarters is another problem. He can turn things around sometimes, but often the damage is already done.
Personally Inwould be happy for us to revert to contested down the line play when things are against us. But that does not seem to be the response.
