You know that break down there's so many of them in a guy. If you can gain some ascendancy at that part of the game. You're going to go a long way towards, you know towards winning because there's so many breakdowns in the game. If you can dominate that area. It's been known since day one that if you can dominate that break down area, you're going to go a long way towards winning. Just getting really good shoulder contact and and a good squeeze on that tackle. It's mine. They doing post tackle whether it's an attacking perspective with the ball carrier focusing on getting back to his feet quickly and then conversely from a defensive perspective getting the defender to actually get back to his feet.

Well consistently was something that we really, you know, we really hammered this year with the waratahs and and having a real clear understanding on how we wanted to play the game and then encouraging the guys to do that and backing ourselves to do that was was a big part of our success.
