The new game

Post by Old Hob » Mon Nov 27, 2017 4:41 pm

Contrary to everything I was taught by Mr H.V. (Chalkie) White and others, possession and territory are not the key to winning games. Tigers had 62% possession and similar territory stats yet lost. This is increasingly common I note. I have not recorded it in any scientific way but I began to take notice a season or two ago when Saracens began winning with similar stats. Now, I look for the stats and find it more and more often. It is presumably about effectiveness and accuracy when in possession. Curious though ain't it?
