1st XV Beaten by Currie

Boroughmuir take lesson from Currie Pack

12 November 2012
Boroughmuir v Currie



Missed chances and mistimed decision making make hard watching for supporters

Boroughmuir had the chance to use this game to iron out some of the mistakes and missed chances experienced in previous games this year, but it turned out to be a harder fight to get into the flow of the game than the team wanted.
With a confident start, Boroughmuir started with the game they wanted, but it only took a few strong runs from Currie to unsettle the team and force some hasty decisions. The team will look at this game and understand where they should of held on to the ball and how Currie were delivering against their game plan by denying Boroughmuir any possession.

It stills seems very quiet on the field, yet the fitness and determination is very evident in each of the players. What is missing is allowing the players to make their own decisions, play to the game in front of them and remember that some phases of the game are like chess, position your opposition to where you want them and attack those gaps when you find the opposition prop panting on the wing.

With a few key players missing and a Club Evening the night before, Currie approached this game with a mission as if it was a final at Murrayfield. One player would not go in alone to a ruck without 2-3 on his shoulder. Their back line showed good decision making at times, when to be patient and when to employee the strong running forwards to break the advantage line.

Boroughmuir will take this on the chin and use the week to work on the strengths they produced at the weekend to remain positive going back into the league action.
