Highland need to cut out basic errors in National One
Highland Rugby Club head coach Dave Carson says the mistakes his players are making in defence would have been punished even if they were still in National Two.
The Greens have won all four of their league matches so far this season, sitting joint-top of the National One table on 19 points.
However rosy that spot might look for Carson, he is all too aware that recent victories have been thanks to comebacks after sloppy starts.
Carson reckons his side cannot rely on clawing their way back into matches all the time, and has called on them to tighten up.
“Once it gets a bit wetter, it’s going to be a bit harder to get back, so we can’t just give good sides like that a 20-odd points lead,” he said.
“Eventually we’re going to slip up and not be able to come back, so we need to be a bit tighter and be that little bit stronger in the first 20 minutes to keep them at bay."
