It's beyond me.
Besides which, it's nonsense to complain abut the FF axis, offensively, when they are getting such poor ball and the attacks break down so quickly because we lose it at the Breakdown.
Our problems do not lie with FF - sort the pack (especially the back row) out to get some clean ball and then maintain some continuity in attack. Retain the ball through more than a few phases and start putting defences under continued pressure - stop coughing it up, or giving away penalties, as soon as we get in the oppo 22.
I'd also like to see us challenge for the ball more, at line outs. If we must play 3 Locks, we should, at least, nick a few more from the oppo's throw.
