Swedish error rate too high

1 Jul 2018
On Day 2 Sweden lost two games which they could have won with fewer mistakes. They lost 19 - 12 to Poland and 29 - 19 to Spain to finish last in the GP. After two rounds with two to go, Poland and Georgia are on five points and Sweden on four. The team heading for relegation will probably come from these three.

Sweden scored five good tries on Day 2 but hardly won a single lineout, failed to collect the ball from their own or opposition dropouts and gave away decisive penalties by playing the ball on the ground. Failure to improve on these important technicalities and we will probably be heading for the Trophy-level next year. Two rounds to improve, we have the playing ability to do so.
