URC – “We Just Have To Keep Working Hard And Keep Believing” – John Plumtree


Hollywoodbets Sharks coach John Plumtree said the reason for their 10-40 loss to the Emirates Lions, was his side’s poor start and poor finish the past weekend at Ellis Park.

“Poor start and poor finish,” said Plumtree when reflecting on the game. “It’s a frustrating performance again from us."

“We were in it for 60 minutes and then the last 20 minutes wasn’t good enough."

“We struggled a bit in the scrum and we allowed them access in our 22 and then their forwards got on top of us with their drive.”

“We had two or three tries disallowed in the first half, which was pretty frustrating."

“Proud of the boys for the effort. Again, we started badly, like against the Stormers, 19-3 down and then come back 19-10 at halftime and have tries disallowed and that was pretty frustrating,” he said.

“We just have to keep working hard and keep believing. We know that we will get it right but clearly, we weren’t good enough at the weekend.”
