Useful sequence on strategy from Steve Hansen

Forwards coach Steve Hansen almost unwittingly in talking to a radio interviewer this morning provided some helpful insights into strategy and even tactics.

He stated that what is needed (in preparing and then executing in a winning sports effort – in this case the RWC semi final) is:

Clarity first. Knowing with clarity what you are supposed to be doing. Then you can move to…

Intensity. Upping the intensity of effort to actually do what you are wanting to do. And with that tends to come…

Precision – which is fairly useful.

So turned around you should end up with precise and intense effort directed at exactly what you are trying to do. Very simple and no doubt very difficult to achieve (especially consistently) but it helps to know the sequence and work to it.
