Our defence was very leaky again, thankfully our a track was better. Disappointing to go from leading 23-0 just before half time to getting drawn into a dog fight. Still, it's another 4 points so can't be too upset!

Yes, defence a bit disappointing. But we handled very well in attack (first handling error on 22 minutes, after lots of good phases and even a few good offloads). The pace of the game seemed very high, and not surprisingly a few more errors crept in later - though the fitness/stamina on both sides was impressive. Veenendaal/Eden worked very well - DV's speed of pass is better than MM. On the downside the lineout was very poor, and we did butcher three or four excellent chances for lack of optimum support running - should certainly have had 4+ tries. But at least line-breaks were made. Good game to watch.

What were the line out stats. Winning our own lines and stealing from the opposition has definitely been a strength thus far.
