So tactics for Poite next week

Post by Flametop »

Another week, another French ref.
However, it will be a completely different game with the "interpretation" being completely different from Garces.

Garces was very hot to ping ruck infringements but let a lot of scrums collapse with play continuing from the base.

Poite normally makes up his mind early in which team has the dominant scrum and award s lots of penalties accordingly.

Rucks are a free for all which creates a mess but attracts lots of numbers, creating space out wide.
Both sides should target the ball and misfile like hell into the rucks.

Poite is much maligned. Very good ref. Managed the Canes game very well. While the crowd weren't happy with some of his decisions, he was right almost the entire game. Always going to be misses and errors by refs, but Poite has the right balance of applying the laws and letting the game flow.

Usually.

I predict he will be forever known as Romain Toite after next week.

For Poite, hopes he forgets Murray is from Munster.
And just lash into the breakdown like Mako into a snack box.

I don't get all the ref angst. All the teams need to do is listen to what the ref is telling them and react accordingly. It's not rocket science.

Of all the refs in the world Poite allows the most amount of contest for possession.
Virtually anything goes at ruck time. You have to put numbers in to retain possession.
It creates space outside but probably slower ball.

If the Lions cant adapt to a new ref, they may as well go home now. They should be looking at their own game and how they will overcome the AB's, not worry about the ref. :roll:

Poite is the scrum expert, so the front row better mind their Ps & Qs, & he's also the ref who really, really hates yappy players in his ear; so I hope the NZ'ers start flappiara :D

Rules for Romain are simple:

Win the early scrums as cleanly as possible. After 5 or so scrum wins, you can be as dirty as fudge

Don't lie on the wrong side of the ruck - you will be penalised - but otherwise, pile the numbers in.

Warburton has done the square root of feck all this tour, but I think Poite on Saturday is made for him.

I expect our anonymous captain to have a field day at ruck time and win MOTM.

There must have been at least half a dozen occasions in the second test where garces screamed "leave it 6" :lol: ...... with poite at the helm I genuinely reckon Sam is going to fill his boots

If it was any other ref on Saturday I'd be looking for him to be dropped in favour of Pom stander or tips.... but I think the current backrow is just perfect for a poite match.

Looking back on Saturdays game and the two pennos itoje gave away were every bit as stupid as makos ones ..... I don't subscribe to the view that he's nailed on

We could see lawes and itoje start however, which makes you wonder if AWJ gets into the 23 ahead of hendo. If the ruck is a free for all then there's no better player to spring from the bench to start counter rucking like a crazed buffalo

Unfortunately can't see Gatland dropping AWJ.

Agree about Warburton though. If he gets away with slowing AB ball/winning holding penalties it could be the winning of the match. Also depends on what Poite and the TMO think of the scud missiles(diving onto the player off their feet)that will be aimed at him all night.

If you had any knowledge of the Laws of the game and even a passing familiarity with AB ruck technique prior to this tour where the former have been completely ignored by the all the referees , except the much maligned Angus Gardner , then you would know that "scud missile " at ruck /breakdown has been standard Lion's fare and those players [ the scud missile targets] are obliged to make every effort to maintain their footing and not go to ground with the express purpose of slowing down the recycle or playing the ball.

If the discipline/penalty count is to be addressed then positive play at the breakdown is required .

Ooh , and the offside line is the last mans feet , not 0.5 , 1 , 2 or 3 metres in front of .

Nah, that's not the narrative. Get with the programme. AWJ and Warburton are/were/will always be shit...totally irrespective of what actually happens.

AWJ is average, but the unusual majority man advantage made the difference.

He was smashing All Blacks from minute 1. That was his main job, and he did it extremely well. Especially during that first 40 minutes, the All Blacks got no traction up front as the held at the gainline.
