RuggaMatrix International 080 – What About Scotland?

rm080
Another tough week in the deep south – but England and Scotland have shown the way.

While both teams had courageous wins Wales, Ireland and Italy ran into trouble.

Although Italy did well against South Africa.

Scotland move up to 7th place in the IRB rankings after sweeping the series in Argentina.

So there’s a host of games and ramifications to cover in show 80.

IN DEPTH ANALYSIS – BUDGETED PERFORMANCE

This is a masterclass on selection and what to expect from your players by Ewen McKenzie.

All players contribute in different ways and in this discussion we talk about putting numbers or expectations on each player so coaches can ‘budget’ for a certain performance.

It’s at the very core of team selection and well worth a listen. We even talk about budgeting for bad aspects of play.

NAME CASHO’S FISH – KEEP ‘EM COMING

Mark Cashman has taken delivery of two more fighting fish and they need names!

The best suggestions from the RuggaMatrix audience will get the nod.

The successful names will win for the listener TWO of our brilliant RuggaMatrix USA caps.

Note: Casho already has ‘New Old Mate’ who replaced ‘Old Mate’ after he tragically passed on.

Good luck!
