RugbyU: Wallabies Can Regain Defensive Backbone For NZ Return - Coach

SYDNEY, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -22nd Augst,2016) - The Wallabies' poor defence can be fixed as they try to salvage the Bledisloe Cup in this week's pivotal second Test against the All Blacks, assistant coach Nathan Grey said Monday.
Australia conceded six tries in their 42-8 hammering by the world champions in the opening game of the three-match series in Sydney on Saturday. New Zealand, who have held the trans-Tasman Bledisloe Cup since 2003, can retain the silverware with victory in Wellington on Saturday ahead of the final game of the series in Auckland on October 22.
Head coach Michael Cheika was bristling over the team's 38 missed tackles, telling reporters at the post-match press conference: "We defended very poorly, defence is attitude.
When players run you've got to tackle." Defence coach Grey said the execution of the Wallabies' defensive structure had been poor against the rampant All Blacks. "It was very disappointing and a little bit uncharacteristic, a combination of guys not getting their technique right and also New Zealand carrying the ball very strongly," Grey told reporters.
