the issue isn't necessarily that it was wet, it's how they handled the pressure of it being wet.
"hoping" that it doesn't rain to much, is not really a great way to approach an issue.
The issue it does raise, like with every team, what happens when opposition teams figure out how to stop us ?
No good having an ingrained system that once set up against, is easy to stop.
The blueprint for how to beat us isn't that hard and has been around for years, you set up one or 2 players a kick behind the play, and you pressure the ball carrier, as far to many of our players still have the habit of, see ball kick ball forward for no reason.
So what happens on a dry day, when we continually play into the hands of opposition teams ? do you want our players and coaches to go, well look we've practiced this way all summer, best not change things now, you never know it might start working out for us again soon, you know just cos.
There is no one magic formula that is better than any other, it's about being able to implement and change styles within the game and within the season depending on how the opposition set up to play against us.
It's not about hiding behind the excuses, oh well it was wet, we couldn't play the way we wanted, oh well it's not gonna rain that much anymore when we play, so we will be sweet.+
