Wolf Mail Round 2 team

The Wolves Coach looks back to the opening game of the season and a lost two points in the Capital as well as looking towards the first home game of Super League X.


Scoring five tries of that quality away from home and having two tries disallowed is tough to take. Momentary lapses in concentration in defence were our downfall; these were highlighted when the pace of the game had dropped away. Especially, on contentious decisions and re-starts. The Broncos were more opportune than us and their extra goal kicks proved to be the difference.


The way we constructed our sets to score our tries and how we responded when the negatives came. To lose six points in the first 40 seconds off a freak ricochet and come back to score 16 unanswered points until just before half time signifies the control of the game we had for large periods. The Broncos were in our half twice in the opening 40 and scored 12 points, the lapse in concentration for the second try lifted their spirits and thus their performance measurably.


In rehab and progressing well.
