Still lots of work to do
Re: Manu Samoa against Germany
Scrums were very good. Kick-offs still need improvements. Lineouts were also inconsistent.
Defending against their mauls needs to be the big work-on for Heidelberg because that is where the Germans will attack Samoa to try and win penalties and easy possession.
Still need to be switched on in the final qualifying match.
Treat it as Samoa’s World Cup final because Germany will be at home and will be coming out to throw everything at Samoa.
They have nothing to lose. Samoa needs to have the same attitude - go into the game as if it is still 0-0.
Also, hopefully the German team got to tour some of the old German colonial spots.
Samoa is a part of their country’s history. Although I understand that most of the German team are from the north, whereas the majority of the German colonists were from the south (Bavaria).
Some of the German-Samoans can correct me if I am wrong.
