JP - you are right that 'avoiding losing' can dominate a team mentality and can also influence tactics in order to minimise risk taking. We've seen past seasons where the play has been turgid as a result when we're in the relegation zone scrap.

I don't think anyone is suggesting we suddenly switch to basketball / rugby 7's approach - but it could encourage us to play a bit more 'heads up' rugby, attempt one or two more offloads etc. If so, I'm all for that.......besides I don't think we're equipped for a forward dominated 'up the jumper' game plan anyway, so we may as well try to play a decent all round game.
