Turkey 53, Azerbaijan 3 in Antalya (ENC 3) Match stopped 65m-violence


We've played Azerbaijan twice, thrashed them twice. Not a single incident of violence.

After the Paphos game I spoke to the captain(I'm assuming) of Azerbaijan and he actually THANKED ME for the excellent facilities and accommodation.
The Azeri's were a decent bunch, even after getting slaughtered by the Cypriots.


And that is how it should be.....well done the Azeris' for their attitude, but well done for Cyprus for winning.

It has been brought to my attention that the Azeri's are indeed a dirty lot on the pitch.
Off the pitch, nice guys.

The line-out looks absolutely awful. The lifters aren't getting under properly and the 1 is lifting from the back of the knee, which is very dangerous because it can cause leg spasms and cause a collapse. The Whites are lifting from too far up the body so they are losing height. Honestly, how can these people be called professional rugby players? :D

Also the height difference in lifters is too much, which affects the angle of the lift. Best to use two props as lifters and the weaker lock to catch. Bring the lock down and get into strong positions around him like a shield. The remaining lock and two flankers drive into the props+lock, hooker comes in and secures the ball, drive over the line and score. If further in field e.g. near the 22 or halfway, then spin it out to the 9 and play through the backs. Split backrow and frontrow into pods, have backrow hit first ruck, then set up next one and have it sorted out by the frontrow. Play out through backs, get a kick to a sideline then line-out drive over the try-line. Simple.

:lol:

You passed sweeping judgments based on one picture.
So you're saying the level of English rugby is sub standard?

:shock: Thanks for the coaching advice Steampunk - I will be sure to pass it on to the Moufflons Coach and all the "professional" players involved. Oh wait a minute, are we in the right decade - old school drills in all you describe, but I am sure your advice will be appreciated, it looks like they need all the help they can get after all???

Any couch potato with a beer in his hand can spout self righteous wisdom while never having played a game in his life and certainly not for a national side.
Sweeping statements based solely on a single picture is reason enough to disregard the post entirely.
