The perfect outcome does not need perfect processes.

If you win a clean lineout, the throw and jump don’t need to be perfect, but something needs to adjust to make it clean. Perhaps the jumper should be prepared to reach forward or lean back, the lifters to hold the jumper up for a little longer than normal.

A backs move does not need the perfect delivery from 9 to 10 as long as 10 adjusts, as do the other runners.

The top coaching tip is: Prepare your players for adjustments. Coach the perfect and imperfect delivery of the ball.
