Are you certain you right about your rugby tactics? by David Clarke

On Saturday, I sat in the crowd at the Millennium Stadium surrounded by good natured fans from Wales and Australia.

Good natured but NO IDEA about how the game should be played. They bemoaned kicking tactics, taking contact and other such decisions which I knew were the right decisions.

And then I thought, perhaps they are right? Who am I to say they are wrong?

Some coaches are so certain they are right, it makes them sound right and the players believe it, enact it and, hey presto it works. If it doesn’t work, then it is due to the referee, weather, injuries or just poor execution.

Other coaches are so worried they might be wrong, they fuss and fiddle, so the players are confused and they don’t know whether they were right or wrong because no one made a certain course of play.

So which coach are you? Are you certain you are certain or certain you are uncertain or uncertain whether you are certain or uncertain?

If you are uncertain your team will be as well. Uncertain teams don’t win games.
