The South African further added that the team mananged to stick to their initial plan of not playing in their own 22 but to play the Zimbabweans in their own half.
“the game was about patience…the guys stuck to their guns…we didn’t play too much rugby in our 22..that was the plan..to keep them and play them in their half and hit them with the mauls..the guys played to the plan today,”he added.
Paarwater was however not impressed by tackling especially on one on one situations.”“There were so many positives to draw from this game but the one negative is that I am still not happy with the one on one tackles,” he concluded.
