We looked like a team that hadn't played together today - disjointed and no flow to our game. Yet, of the front 6, only one was a newcomer. It almost had the feel of a pre-season performance.
Which made me wonder whether our actual pre-season was competitive enough. Numerous games against sub-standard local opposition and a thrashing at a lower ranked league team. Is that sufficient to hit the ground running when it comes to the real thing ?
