Since saturday I've been thinking where did we go wrong against the eels, what was the main problem?
Ive had so many what if's and its just doing my head in to be honest.
The main question I've asked myself is what is more important, Attack or Defence.

Even though not many people will agree with me I think Attack is where we need to step up if we want to be contenders this year and I know you'll be thinking, "but we had 40 points scored against us, its definately the defence we need to improve!" but I don't agree (although I'll change my mind 30 more times before our second game)

My reasons why I think attack is more important

The aim of the game is to have the most points at the end of 80 minutes, why focus on defence if we not getting any points?
The more we attack the more they have to defend, In most games I've watched the team attacking usually wins.
It uses a lot more energy defending then it does to attack if we stop worrying about our defence and put a lot more effort into getting through our sets and doing something with it when it comes to the last tackle we should have them under the pump and get points off it!
The key is to keep the ball in hands and we won't have to defend as much.

This week instead of us going out and worry about keeping them to 0 points, I want to see them go out and just keep the ball in hand and look for the repeat sets and see how we go.

Just wondering what other peoples thoughts are?
