Back to basics for Waratahs
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Waratahs backrower Jed Holloway says a greater focus on skills in the preseason is going to benefit every Australian Super Rugby franchise.
“That’s the main area we recognised wasn’t good enough last year, not just at our club but all of Australian rugby.
“The coaches have done a great job recognising that and the boys have been working hard on those skills.
“It’s not just out on the field, we’re getting in sessions after gym, making sure we’re hitting a lot of passes during the day.”
“It’s been a hell of a lot of running, a lot of up-downs, a lot of ball skills,” he said.
“I don’t really know Curtis personally but obviously, he’s a Wallaby, he has a huge amount of experience in rugby league and even over in the Force.
“He’s a bit of an older head as well around the squad.”
