CAPE TOWN – Springbok Women’s coach Stanley Raubenheimer singled out the poor defence and his team’s struggle to capitalise on their scoring opportunities as the main contributing factors to their disappointing 47-5 defeat against Scotland at the City Park Stadium in Cape Town on Monday.
“I am very disappointed, it was a tough day at the office,” said Raubenheimer afterwards.
“There are a lot of things we need to work on, which we will do during the week, and hopefully we will come out with a better performance on Saturday (in the second Test).
“Our defence is a concern, that is one area we need to have a serious chat about, and handling errors and penalties conceded were again an issue. As a team, we are learning slowly, but we need to take the lessons from that.”
