Franco Smith’s assistant coach took stock of the second Autumn Nations Cup race
It has once again suffered a defeat for Italy in rugby, but the good performance compared to the recent past and the competition shown by the Azzurri has thrilled the mind in retirement and Console technical staff, And also convinced of rowing in the right direction.
Italy’s defense coach Marius Gosain also says: “I think compared to Ireland and England, we can talk of an unattainable development [nella partita di sabato]. Ball in hand we managed to make ourselves dangerous on many occasions, even beyond scoring goals. There has never been a lack of will to play, and this is thanks to all the players who have been entered from the bench. “
“We should never forget that this is a very young group with very little experience at this level, and it represents an added difficulty for them. However, we believe that by working in this direction we will soon be better off Results. “
One of the sad points of the match in Florence is the performance Best player of the match By Duhn van der Merwe. The Scottish winger hit the Italian defense hard, holding the ball several meters apart, with the ball in hand. A problematic situation, which, however, according to the South African coach, is not so much due to the blue defensive system: “First of all it would have to be said that he is a very strong player, gifted with physical and great speed. It True: He hurt us a lot on Saturday, but I don’t think anyone had heard that much speech Game plan, More than two or three of our personal errors. “
“We will work on it, also because against Fiji we have to reduce the number of tackles and missteps, otherwise it will be a big problem”.
Finally, Gosain focused on his dual role, noting that he held the same position with Italy And with benetton: “Franco [Smith] He certainly does not ask the franchise to play with the same system as the national team, but there are some things that we do in a similar way. The defensive system, for example, is the same here on Zebre and Benetton. We want to harmonize the work of the ball carrier at the meeting point. For the game system, everyone has a different style as it should be. But we work in the same way that we can combine, and Benetton’s role in this helps me. “
